If I had aunt Alvah for a waitress , I’d tip 10% for average and 20-25% for excellent.

After spending 35yrs in the restaurant business I most certainly tip those that deserve it. What irritates me now is how the cashier asks for a tip as soon as I order and pay, before any food has been prepared or service given. I still add a tip if I’m going to eat it in the restaurant. If I call in a Togo order and walk in to pick up the food I may or maybe not leave a tip. It depends on the situation.
I can tell you from many years of experience, some employees earn every $$ they get and others not so much. It always frustrated me seeing the ones that gave a “poor pitiful me” story to hopefully get a larger tip from the customer, when others were too busy working to give any pity stories.

I have noticed lately if you pay cash at the table they bring back all but the change.
If it is 40c or 80c it is still mine, if this happens I figure this is what they think they worthy as a tip.
I tip well as a rule but this bothers me.

Anyone else leave your dining companion at the table as collateral when you are at the register and breaking a larger bill for a tip?

If you choose to tip on a card, not only are you funding the Gov, the credit card company take their 3% or whatever it is.
I usually pay with my debit card and always tip in cash. In addition, I believe a tip should "fold", not "jingle".

In the past I would pay for the meal with my card, zero out the tip section, then leave cash on the table for the server. That was until a few years ago at a Chili's when I paid with my card and left the tip on the table as usual, then when I checked my credit card statement about a week later I saw that my charge was $12 more than the $25 I had signed off on. Since it was a week later and I hadn't kept the receipt I didn't go back and complain, but someone added $12 to my charge after I'd filled out the card receipt. My guess is that what happened was that the busboy had cleaned off the table and pocketed the cash tip before the server got a chance to collect it, then the server thought she'd been stiffed and decided to tack $12 on to the $25 bill. Regardless of what happened, I no longer leave cash on the table for the server. I tip on the card receipt and let them sort it out. Someone working there was a thief, I don't know or care who it was. I was trying to do a good deed for the servers but it bit me so now I just tip on the card.

Definitely a waitress. Probably at a gentleman’s club.

Not a real member - just an ordinary guy who appreciates being able to hang around and say something once in awhile.

No, his Mom won’t leave either unless you call a Lyft. Uber isn’t fancy enough.

I read about a black that tipped once. She was young, all alone, and no one could see her do it.

This is what I do. I hand the tip to them and tell them this is for getting off your ass and going to work unlike a lot of people.
