didn't see southerns comment.  i tip because i know how the service industry works.  i factor the extra cost into the experience before going out if i am to be "served".

I agree ppl just speak up but in reality they don't so we have this...

I think consumers especially black consumers should speak up be it bad service or a bad product

I think not tipping your waiter/waitress is tacky. But other than that I don't feel like tipping is mandatory for others like the chinese food carryout or chipotles. 

My mil doesn't believe in tipping and she puts servers through the ringer. We have to tell her that she should leave a tip. We went out a few weeks ago and she tipped the waitress $6 and accidentally wrote $6 on the receipt to be taken off her credit card. Once she realized it she told the waitress that she didn't mean to tip her that much($12). I was mortified. That girl looked so embarassed. I just gave my mil $12 and gave the server some extra money. She was a really good server.

i often wonder if people realize how the irs expects  restaurant/bar workers will receive a minimum of a certain % in tips.  and if they don't (and thus don't report it) this causes major problems for the worker because the restaurant/bar will need to add additional tip income to the workers w2 to meet the irs minimum.  in other words, the worker could receive a w2 for more than what they actually received in tips.  so yes, it is expected that service workers in most restaurants/bars will receive tips.
