In 1999 i started as a bus driver (worst job i ever had and i've been in the Army!) and for that i got paid £3.50 an hour, taking home about £120 a week. My rent was £70 per week leaving me £50 per week to live on (i was in a hostel so didn't have other bills) and i never got tips, yet at the same time, taxi drivers, who were earning a lot more than i was earning, got tipped!
Anyway, i'm rambling! I don't mind paying for service in a restaurant if they go out of their way to keep my glass full but i hate having to tip anybody else (does that shine through? lol) I don't see why i should if you're already getting paid.
That said, like i say above, i do tip but do it with hate in my heart!

Here in the UK tipping is generally reserved for restaurants and then only if the service is good. However, I have tipped when the experience has been good, or even when I'm just feeling good.
A couple of weeks ago, ordered a pizza from a chain, came quick and hot and offered a tip. Delivery guy says no need, pizza company pays him for delivery!!
Here in Thailand tipping is not a common practice. At a high scale restaurant where customers are required to wear shoes and a shirt, the tip is usually factored into the bill, 10%. If I like the service, which I most always do, I hand the food server a tip directly so he or she knows it's for her and not the establishment.
Not long ago I had a Pizza Co. pizza delivered and I tipped the driver about $1. Five minutes later he came back and told us that we made a mistake and gave him too much. When I explained no mistake but a tip, he was very appreciative.
I like to be a 'valued customer' and have a friendly rapport at some of my favorite eating places so I actually enjoy tipping. Seeing the pretty waitress give me a big smile is worth it all.
At sit-down restaurants, I tip 20 to 30 percent. At take out restaurants and for delivery, I tip $1 to 3. I tip because it's customary, and I want good service next time. For that reason, I don't vary my tips based on quality of service or service charges. My tips vary more on whether I patronize frequently enough to be remembered.
Usually $5. I live a decent trek away from our pizza place, so it's only fair. With the cost of gas, it's gotta be tough on delivery drivers these days.
$2-3 a dollar per pizza :)
As a youngster I delivered pizzas. There was a guy who always ordered the same pizza, which with tax cost 9.95 at the time. He invariably gave me a 10, and waited silently but firmly until I dug around and found his nickel change.
What kind of freak does that?
