Tips: I tip 20% as a matter of form. I go out a lot with girlfriends and have been told that waitpersons  consider a gaggle of females as notoriously bad tippers. The younger the worse.  A friend educated me when we were still in high school, if the service is horrible tip a penny so the person knows you didn't forget but just didn't think the service was worth any more


TL, I had a girlfriend who was a wait person.  She had been trained at a higher end restaurant by a long experienced waiter.  He had instructed her that in tipping, if the customer had shitty service they would put a few pennies on the table.  If it had been the service that everyone craves, a good wait person would find the appropriate tip and small amount of change stacked on the receipt plate.  8 cents, 13 cents, stacked neatly.  This was to communicate that the wait person had given that service and the recipient wanted to show that they had taken the time to acknowledge them, by tipping appropriately and stacking neatly, a small odd sum.  Kinda like a golf clap. 

My girlfriend at the time thought that she was getting her leg pulled.  Until she did get one of those tips....and a small stack of coin. I believed her.  Of course, she told me that she loved me, too.

Dancing.
Never saw the point.

Foreplay

Small talk.

Ask a deep question at someone you never met and if you get a stupid look they have already indirectly spared you any energy needed to waste on foreplay or pretending you like to dance.

I don't agree with this mandatory tipping bullshit in bars and restaurants.
It's a scam by restaurant owners to financially support the underpaid employees.
If I tip it's only 10%, max.
Those who brag that they tip 20% or more are naive fools being taken for a ride.

I praised you last night. Your karma was 1. Someone took your tip away. Probably a current or former wait person. Or a naive fool

Agreed. Fairly pay the employees like any other employee in the service sector. Either they are polite and can do their job or they can't.  Keeping a tipping system in place just enables the restaurant owners to continue to be cheap bastards.

On the 20% though, until there is a change in the larger system, this could be kind of bad if it were seen as naive, to staff they depend on that for survival.

I bought the new Eric Clapton Christmas album and downloaded it from iTunes. I think I like it. Different.

Eric Clapton is still alive?
