Tipping reinforces the servant/master relationship, in many ways. Its one thing to pay a fair price for something, and quite another to pay for servitude which is something that our settlers left back in England...
That reminds me of something I wonder about...so many on this thread say that tipping insures better service. One poster said the question "had long been settled..." why did I think of Algore?
Anyway...it seems to me the same argument works for third world countries like Mexico...when you bribe someone, don't you get better service?
Where's the logical line between tipping and bribing? It seems to me it's just a matter of degree.

You grease the palm to get service. A tip is for good service rendered.
