Service workers, including servers, are a profession. Most places in Europe servers are well trained and paid for the work they do. I expect someone to bring me dinner after I make my selection. It should be included in the price on the menu.

It seems to be North America where we do not give them the respect due their position and seem to think we have to give them incentive to do the job properly. This seems to be creating a delineation between professional work and what some consider menial work. All jobs should be considered a profession!

I wonder how long it will be before we will be expected to start tipping engineers and doctors in order for them to do their job?

A server can make a good living and based on tips is a good way to do it.

If the pay is more then it is flat rate regardless of quality.

Higher labor costs directly impact price of food.

Price is for food on the table.

If the server is expected to take care of the customer and the expectation is better service could be a better tip then some will do great

A local steakhouse will not let a glass get 1/2 empty nor leave an empty anything on the table so they get a good tip.

Other places bring the food and allow glasses to go dry and fail to check in so those get a penny on the table.

Sounds harsh but if and when they complain then they may get a lesson or the boot.

The tip is for service...no service no tip.

Campsite guide may get a tip if they assist in getting hookups done or other tasks not expected, some folks may have difficulty with those and for that a tip would be nice.

Well if tipping the work camper who guides the RVs to sites becomes the fashionable fad ... my wife and I will leap to get work campers jobs. We certainly don't need the money, but hey, I dearly love the feel of greenbacks. I realize tip income is supposed to be reported to the IRS, and all that, but I'm old and tend to forget stuff.

I am the original poster. Yesterday, upon the person taking me to the site, I asked if he accepted tips. He gave a polite no but I think he appreciated that gesture more than he would have had taking the tip. I told him that we appreciated his help over the summer. This is our 3rd time here this year.
