i personally cant afford to be paying extra tips! If there is no service charge included i would only tip if extremely impressed with the service. If there is service charge then i would never leave a tip - and for those that are saying that service charge isnt always given to the waiters then they shouldnt be calling it service charge!
on the note about US taxes.. The UK isnt so bad but it does have VAT which is a bitch! All i want to see happen is when you see the price of something whether it be a TV or a Burger i want the price it is listed it to be the price you have to pay! how hard is that to do?? Why cant everyone start being more honest..
