If you are someone who prizes good service and thinks it should be rewarded I would suggest that you not add the tip to your bill if you pay with a credit card.

The employer then has the right to withhold the tip from your server until they get paid and deduct taxes from it.

If you want to help the servers and hairdressers who work very hard for every penny, please tip in cash.

Tipping may disappear because everything is costing so much, but remember that servers are only rarely guaranteed minimum wage.
