    Tipping is fucking awful. If you were to explicitly pay your employees in the way tippers do it would be illegal:

    - women servers paid more than men (particularly young, conventionally attractive women)
    - white servers paid more than minorities
    - tall servers more than short servers
    - extra pay for physical contact/flirting

    Still, that's the system we have. If you don't tip it just makes you a cheap asshole.

But borrowing medical school/law school money to get such a degree makes no sense and we shouldn't support it. Artists don't make doctor/lawyer money.
