Default Re: a little something in advance??

I have never pre-tipped, and in fact I find the practice condescending. Basically, it's saying, "treat me special, and maybe there will be more." I will tip extra for requests that are out of the ordinary, or if we have guests and make more than our usual mess. I have never once felt that our service suffered. We leave auto-tips in place and have tipped extra almost every time.
