all the time. As much as is required.

For example on fathers day i was in a restaurant having dinner. I noticed the waiter standing around looking at his phone. I could see people waiting to be seated and people who hadn't ordered. So i gave him the tip that he was there to work not play with his phone.

Yes, I usually tip the waiting staff.
Generally between £10-£30.
It depends on how good the service and food have been.
But I only pay the optional service charge if the service, food and overall entire dining experience has been flawless and I'm sure that the service charge is not sneakily being diverted to boost wages to nmw/nlw levels.

No. It’s not my responsibility to pay the staff, that’s their bosses responsibility.

Yeah, usually 10% but not always. It depends on the service (not the food, it's not the waiter's responsibility)

Depends on the restaurant and the involvement of the service,

I used to more with cash but with card I tend to just go with whats on the machine.

Probably 5-10% in the UK, 15% in the US (always tip in the States).

No they get paid the NLW so why would I? The only reason it exists in Yankeeland is because they barely get paid by their employer, it's ****ed up.

10-15%. Depends on the restaurant and the service. Usually leave cash in a chain restaurant, less bothered in an independent one as can just overpay on card. Especially in independent places it's good to overpay slightly as they will remember you.

I pay when the service is top-notch. Usually round it to the nearest 5.

Often yes, but i'll make a point of not rewarding poor service. 10%-ish, depending how flush I'm feeling.
