    You just throw 20% out there because you're expected to? Or the places you go are worth it. Tipping is getting silly. I always go 20% when it's earned, but I'm not shy to give less otherwise. I'm no miser, but 20% is a privilege, not a right.
    It is now my duty to completely drain you.

    10% if service is acceptable, 20% or more if it's good, 0% if it's less than acceptable is my rikto
