I went to a brewpub for lunch today. Was planning on just having a pint and catching second half of champions league but i was getting hungry and had a burger. I had exactly $17 cash in my wallet a 10 5 and 2 singles. The bill was $16.77 exactly. I didnít want to leave the bartender a $5 tip for pouring me a pint and he didnít cook the burger. so i charged the meal and left the singles for tip. is that appropriate? do you tip somebody for food they didnít prepare?

Yes because, more often than not, they tip out their cooks at the end of their shift.

Is this a serious question? I am pretty sure in most cases the girl waiting your table when you go out to eat at a restaurant is not also back in the kitchen cooking all the food.

lol true. i just feel like a cheapskate even though i just spent $17 for a pint of beer and cheeseburger. i probably would have left about $4 if i had that many singles.

Starts at 20%, goes up/down from there. If itís only beer, $1-2 per beer.

I start at %15 and it goes up or down from there. I am not sure when this standard was changed or suggested to change to %20, but my wages:cost of living ratio hasnít changed.

By that logic, you canít tip the bartender unless he made the beer.

I never tip, most of the time, the guy serving me did not take the entrepreneurial risk of opening the restaurant in the first place.

Everyoneís answer will be VERY different depending on if they worked as a waiter or not. When answering, specify if youíve ever worked in a restaurant so we can judge appropriately. :)
