American tipping culture is a cancer.

I'm Canadian; the tipping culture is similar. What bothers me is what I call the “good-looking girl” subsidy. These are waiting jobs at chic spots where the waitresses bring in 6 figure tips per year (before they become real estate agents), more or less for being hot. I'd rather the tips are for those that need them.

I went out with my roommates to a restaurant, where our waiter was a good looking guy. One of my roommates said she never tips, but she’ll tip him because he’s cute.

An attractive woman downtown probably makes a killing

They can make an absurd amount of money in places like downtown Toronto.
