Default Re: Stop the Insanity!

Knowing that gratuities are considered by most everyone as a means of providing a close tie between service quality and compensation for service, it wouldn't be unreasonable to assume that letting a service provider know that you won't compensate them at all, regardless of the level of service they provide you, would typically result to lower quality service. Unmitigated self-interest would tend to drive someone to silence rather than risking receiving service commensurate with the withholding of compensation they're planning to implement.
