Plummie Newbie again, and with a question.
I'm a fan of going out to eat, when someone I know can afford it, however, most of the time we can't afford to tip.
Sometimes I read a lot of articles, or waitresses online complaining about lacks of tips, and what not. Or how rude it is not to tip at all. (Sometimes I read it's ridiculous a server's payment for rent depends upon tips.) I've really liked a few waitresses, but again; unable to tip.
Is it bad I go out to eat at restaurants and am unable to tip for the lovely service besides trying to be the best custy ever?
