"I've always thought of tipping as a form of corruption on par with graft in Third World countries. Oh, you want me to do my job? Give me money. I usually tip 15 percent to 20 percent since this is the local custom, but this custom derives from stingy employers who've long refused to pay wait staffs appropriately and expect the customers to make up for it."
— Dow Jones Newswires columnist Al Lewis, writing for Fox Business about gratuities at restaurants.
