And family shares. So give up 10% of your tips to the bartender.

Not defending any of it, but s/he may have paid with someone else's money and didn't have any extra for tip.

Maybe should have bought groceries or gone to a less expensive restaurant, then. I've always been taught if you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to eat out. (Though I agree with everyone else here that American tipping is a bullshit system, make the employers pay their staff, it shouldn't be our job as consumers to make sure they're paid fairly)
