Each year I hear repeated complaints about the manner in where waiters and waitresses are tipped -- or not! These people have children and families just like we do. They have Christmas presents to buy.
While money is tight during the holidays for most of us, why would we ever believe it isn't the same for them? Let us remember this during this busy season, when they are working very hard.
Here is the way I look at it--if you can't afford to tip, you shouldn't be dining out. That is just the way it is. I have to admit, under-tipping has always bothered me – it is just downright tacky.
Merry Christmas and Cheers!
