I hope it's a true story but I don't know.
I meant the story about the prospector. It's idiomatic... nothing to worry about it being true or not.by the way, feel free to follow me. You sounds cool.
I agree with the phrase "to insure prompt service" The two restaurants I've been too that don't do tipping, had the worst service I've ever had and asking for a manager at the one, they never showed up. Didn't help that I had to ask the server who likely never told the manager.The other one offered to fix the issue, but I don't trust staff to not spit in food or something when someone complains, I asked for a gift card for a future visit or a refund and he said can't do that. Either fix it now or not... said nope, soon as you go tell the staff I have no way to know what they'll do.Seems to me a refund or a gift card would have solved that issue easy enough for a future visit.Either way, no tipping to me means horrible service.

I'm sorry, I should have also added another reason that is quite common when out and about, which is if you are in a cafe or restaurant and the price for all the things you ordered adds up to something that you can only currently pay with something that is higher than the price, like if you have a wallet with various notes and don't have a credit or debit card or perhaps you are not carrying a wallet for some reason, and those notes are only higher value notes than what the price of the cafe meal was, so you make the decision of either keeping the change or tipping them.It is also a matter of if they can't split a note, sometimes you just feel like it would be too much hassle for them and yourself to go through the process of calculating the coins, so sometimes you just say keep the change to avoid troubling them.
