Moe, my rule of tipping is that 20 percent …

by CynthiaYockey on July 9, 2011

… is the minimum tip in all circumstances unless the server deliberately sets you on fire. If the fire is accidental, then the tip is still 20 percent.

What? I was schooled on tipping by girlfriends in college who were waitresses.

As someone who has waitressed on and off for a long time, there is nothing worse than pointlessly stingy tippers.

Sure, if you’re a group of visiting Orthodox Jews and I mix your order up and bring y’all pork chops with buttered mashed potatoes with beer on the side (uh, hypothetically) then I can understand a 5% tip. I can even be grateful for your generosity. (Again, uh, hypothetically.)

But I think of it as a commission for a very hard job. So I like Paul Ryan even more now. Of course, the fact that he has had to live on a waiter’s wages and tips probably helps.
