Tips are fine when they are optional.

Over here in Europe, there is no pressure to tip. You give it if you received good service, that’s it. In the US, tipping is mandatory no matter what based on a bizarre social stigma, which like you said is very stupid.

They should just be paid properly for doing their job instead of relying on tips to survive.

While I agree the system is stupid, people who chose to take their criticism of the system out in their server by not tipping are even stupider

I mean there's that and then some servers get insulted when you dont tip them enough. Sometimes you give them 15$ in tip and they look at you like, "seriously??"

Its like, brenda, I want to tip in the way tipping is supposed to be like, not do some fucking mental gymnastics and figure out the average tip in a restaurant i decided to go to randomly for a meal and then create the exact tip that would make you feel fucking thankful for once in your life. 15$ is a big ass tip in my eyes, and some people act like you have to read the entire restaurants history and culture before you should ever fucking dine in because you want food.
