As a British guy in the US, I just don't understand 30 comments

Servers do not HAVE to be tipped in order to make money. We Americans show our appreciation for their taking care of us by giving them something extra. Most servers (at least the ones that are worth a damn) make far above their coworkers wages. When I was a server I made much more money than even the managers. I have been in the restaurant business for most of the last 20 years and I can tell you that the servers who do not make much money are terrible at their jobs and usually get fired for poor performance/being rude to customers. I have never been to England but if you don't show your appreciation to those who wait on you I don't think I want to visit such a rude country. Hope this helps you understand and I hope you tip your servers while in our country.
