Tipping for service really has not changed much from 1999 to 2013...if at all. And sorry, if times are that hard for you and the reason why someone doesnt tip...then maybe their spending habits need to be rethought.
You said shooting and thought it was a typo...my bad but dont know what you meant by shooting.
The post seemed a little hostile.
But this post I'm quoting right now, this is the bigger concern, scaled up to a global scale, would mean more unemployment, as no one's buying, or indeed, tipping, for the service they recieved, and therefore the businesses set up for impulse spending, and fancy spending would close.
One example I can give is the food industry in India, $170 in food at a roadside diner there would feed a small town, they share in the below minimum wage income bracket that was placed here, they don't expect tips, which is why I'd be more inclined to tip. I just had an issue with this guy expecting one, nothing more.
One arguement could be, had he recieved a tip, this wouldn't have been an issue, I was looking at it from the other side, had the customer not ordered from them, it probably wouldn't have been an issue neither.
