    Yeah, tipping makes me not want to eat out ever. Why can't the restaurants just charge a set price and give the waitstaff 15% of the gross for the day?

    Sales tax should be included in prices too for that matter.

    or give the wait staff a "fair" salary like in every other profession.

    and fire them if they consistently do a bad job like in any other profession.

    Well, that's the idea.  They provide better service because they're receiving tips.

    I'm surprised the government doesn't mandate this actually, cuz those waitresses are aren't claiming 75% of their tips on their taxes.

    Not that income tax is legal either.  It's not.  The Constitution only allows for taxation on business profits, not individual wages.  I'm not shitting either, look it up.  The very existence of the IRS is in severe violation of The US Constitution, completely fkn illegal.

    well, that's what the claim is.

    tips = better service

    why don't we tip doctors when they provide good service then?

    In China you have to, especially surgeons.

    If they don't get that red envelope, expect "complications."

    yeah, that's called BRIBERY

    and in fact, the video even jokes about the tips being a bribe so that they don't spit in your food next time.

    it's corruption.

    prices should be fixed.

    and if the service is shit and they're rude, just complain to their manager.
