Agree with OP. Lots of nits in this thread whether they know it or not.
Actually they value their time less and their money more, so less isn't correct in and of itself.

I tip well when I goto bar's / restaurants, and tipping arguments have been discussed on the internet before so I don't think I have much to add.

However, getting pissed when people think about money and make different decisions than you shouldn't have you getting all up in arms about it

sounds more like a deposit than a tip. how much are the drinks?

people tipping does not really bother me, its people thinking they are entitled to a tip, especially when they are a huge douche like OP.

maybe you should try to understand what MissT said in the beginning of this thread. Some people value their money differently than you, and some people think that saving their money is more valuable than spewing it away in unnecessary, unwarranted spots.

this is so stupid this attitude is part of the problem. OP didn't list any outrageous uses of money. the word outrageous being pointless because LIKE YOU SAID it all depends on what you value

Re: Wtf Cheap People

Anyhoo, this is a bit of a GBCW. I've been meaning to quit posting at 2+2 for a while, and this seems like the right time--On Top! With a few exceptions, this site is populated by a bunch of nitty, cheap, virginal, peckerwood, gaylord computer nerds. Have fun clipping coupons, playing WoW, and sucking off your dormmates, you unbelievable losers. Peace!!

i was slightly agreeing with you ITT before you said this.

so you're saying its OK to spit/sneeze/whatever produces a 'loogie' in a customer's food because they have been a poor tipper or unfriendly?

Chips and Salsa should be complimentary. Your restaurant is cheap.

It's not exactly that I feel entitled to the $1, although it is standard, but I can't fathom the mentality of someone who wouldn't just throw down the buck, if for no other reason than not wanting to look cheap and douchey.
Tipping 33% for a drink seems ******ed to me. It is insulting that you think your time pouring a drink into a glass should be worth a 33% tip.

Re: Wtf Cheap People

Some people don't have as much money as you.

If someone where to be a huge nit about tipping and than spend 95% of their net worth on a giant diamond studded cross it would make sense to be critical of them.

If someone doesn't have a lot of money and is cheap it is because they need to preserve the little money they have

That said cheap people are still douchebags and awful at life because of the Worthington principle.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aF8wLg5Asgo
