Sometimes we give a tip to a waiter or see people giving him a tip. I think giving a tip is not wrong but it is a privilege, not a right. We give a waiter a tip because we want to, not because we have to. Thus, a waiter should not expect us to give him a tip every time we have finished our meal. He should think a tip as privilege and he cannot force us to give him a tip. Besides, serving us well is his job and he has receives his salary for that.
Most people who works where they get tips have that taken into account. Their hourly wage is less because it is assumed they will get tips. Even if they don't make enough, many employers will make them report enough tips to equal minimum wage. If I receive good service, I give good tips.
