I agree with u... U don't HAVE to leave a tip... The only obligation u have is to pay the meal... Leaving a tip is a courtesy... Its a "thank you for your service... If the service is poor, why would you thank you? Im not hypocrite... I worked as a waitress one summer... and there are to ways to approach the Job... U can try ur best, or do the minimum required... By trying ur best i mean.. Be nice, force a smile if u have to... Crack a joke if ur in the mood... The friendlier u are the fatter the tip... Doing minimum required... u can't expect a bonus...
So let me get this straight you don't like to tip your waiter/waitress if they don't make eye contact, nervous. I can understand if you don't want to tip because they weren't friendly, rude, bad service, terrible food and didn't serve you that's understandable. You don't have to tip big but tip something because they still serving you. I feel like you just being cheap and finding every reason not to tip them. Since you don't feel like tipping make your own food at home. You will save a lot of money.

Tipping is awful. Its demanded for sub par performances. Its just another indication of the societal rot in North America. Its only to subsidize lazy unethical servers who otherwise couldnt work past selling chocolate bars. Its there to privellege the dumbest among societywe have to offer so that they dont find themselves destitute from their laziness. It subsidizes entitled bratty children who refuse to work at anything that isn't overpaid. Its the easiest of jobs you can find and the highest paying for the least amount of work.
But a well earned tip is a well earned tip. If its closing time and Im stopping the staff from going home Im paying for a bit of the overtime.
I dont mind tipping chefs though. Only if its really busy or if its high class. Sometimes chefs pull miracles and they put more into the meal than what you could imagine. The servers just rob the chef because theyre assholes.

I don’t need someone to be my best friend when I go out to eat, they just need to do their job and makes sure I get my food, drinks, and bill at appropriate times. If they mess up my order, leave my food around to get cold, leave me thirsty, leave me waiting to get out the door, etc. then they’ll get screwed over at tip time. I know their busy, often tired, and are working multiple tables for tips, while fighting with the kitchen to get shit done… They pop between tables fast to make sure everyone has what they need usually. Them not stopping to kissing your ass every time they pass doesn’t even come to being in the ballpark of being racist...
