No offense to you Hameister but this is how I see it from my perspective.
I'm glad we don't have tipping here in australia.
Frankly, I'd rather the servers be paid a decent wage, and I'd be happy to pay a little more for the food, and have no tipping. In that respect we agree.
However, you have the wrong perspective about "sucking up". No customer in a restaurant expects the servers to "suck up". We just expect good, prompt service, with a smile. And we get it 80% of the time. Perhaps 10% of the time the service is exceptional, and 10% is very poor.
Most folks I know, tend to be generous with tips, because most of us worked as waiters, or bus boys, for extra money when we were young, and we remember how hard it was.
