There has been a long-term debate about tipping in restaurants and why it is appropriate. The act of tipping may feel like a norm, but most of us who travel know that leaving extra money for the waiter is not a cultural norm in most other places.
So why do we tip in the United States? We know that waiters get paid less than other professions so it is nice to tip to compensate them for their work. We also know that receiving tips is an incentive for waiters to be courteous, prompt, and great at their jobs to encourage a higher percentage of gratuity.
However, many restaurants take the guess work out of tipping by either including the price of gratuity in the bill. This may seem like a great way to save the customer on math work, but some patrons may feel like it also takes away their power to be reflective about the service they received.
