2009_03_waiters.jpgIs it ever OK to not tip? Michael Bauer says yes: "Restaurants who haven't figured out that people come to a restaurant to escape their problems and want to be treated with respect need to go out of business ... At times, we all feel victimized by a restaurant, forgetting that we have retribution. If service is bad, you don't have to leave a tip." We can understand leaving a smaller tip, but a complete zero seems a bit ... much. Thoughts? [BauerBlog]
