This has been on my mind for a while and often see good responses about Tipping in general. I have always been a gracious tipper , even if the server was not that great. Especially with bartenders, I feel as while sitting at the bar its more of a personal touch. Although, recently I've noticed most do not even look at what they were given.
Is is true to assume, if you tip well you will get better service or are you only as good as your last envelope ?
I do not tip for self gratification and do not expect anything more than normal service, however I hate to just waste money ( I need myself) .
