Tipping % vs Fixed $
I was thinking though, is it appropriate or fair for the customer to pay a % and not a fixed amount?
Say two people order a dish each, one is $20 and the other is $40. Price is higher because of ingredients ect. Each pays 10% pretax for simplicity. That means one person would pay $2 and another pays $4.
At the end of the day, the service they got was the same (meal was delivered to table), yet one paid more in tip simply because the price was higher on their meal.
Shouldn't tipping be based on the level of service and forget about the actual %s or meal price.
I for one disagree with tipping in general for restaurants/haircuts. That in my opinion is already reflected in the price like other services.
