A Tipping Rant To Rival Mr. Pink

Dave Sax, who wrote the great book, Save the Deli, has turned in a real barn burner for the New York Times on tipping.

That's a rant to rival that of Mr. Pink, played by Steve Buscemi in Reservoir Dogs.

Mind you, Sax's rant is one that ought to be best savored in the company of those familiar with Reservoir Dogs, but I'm sure that everyone has an experience with tipping that they'd rather forget--service so bad that you didn't know how you could leave anything for a tip or that the tips were included in the price because you were a large group and the service wasn't nearly what it should have been to deserve 20% (or 18%).
