I agree completely.
Let`s all start refusing to tip and adding a nice little thank you note instead.
How about starting it at your local restaurant this week?
Also next time you take a taxi or have a bellman deliver your suitcases.
Let`s force those darn restauranteurs and hoteliers to pay a decent wage to their staff. Without tipping and an honest wage instead, the service staf fwill have more incentive to go out of their way to do a good job, right?
