All I know is... my friend, Mirko, who is a waiter (i wont say what line) gets $2.05 an hour... he works 15 hour days and he works his rear off... needless to say because he works his rear off he gets pretty decent tips... but that's because he deserves them... but if you have Waiter (false name) Gupta G. who gets every order wrong... calls you mr. when your a miss... and never refills your water glass... then Waiter G. does not deserve your tip... and shouldn't get it... if he is dense enough to not want to serve you better to get a better tip.. then that's his own problem...

It all comes back to personal preference... you shouldn't feel bad if you don't tip each person you meet $20 dollars... HAH... tipping is your discretion and is a very personal interaction between the person who recieved the services that the staff provided...
