This is pretty retarded. When is this ever the case? We have metered taxis, menus have prices, etc. Its not like when you are haggling for something at a market where the chances are higher of getting ripped off you go and tip your seller. In almost every situation where a tip is involved there are fixed prices or a generally free service (i.e. bellhop bringing bags to your hotel room).
My gf said that its common to tip not much more than 40 baht at a restaurant, no matter what the bill costs. 20-40 baht here or there won't really make any difference anyways, so I encourage tipping, especially because they really appreciate it. And this is coming from a busto poker player!
