Default The Envelope Please...

Service is better in places where tipping is the norm. Tipping is only effective if it is completely voluntary. Use your tips, however large or small your budget is, to reward good service when you get it.

Unfortunately the common practice of pooling tips defeats the purpose of tipping and reduces the beneficial effect on service.
