Tipping is annoying, I think it sucks that you have to pay for the food then pay for the service, its wrong, I would rather pay an inclusive bill, I wouldn't care if the food cost more.

The manager of the resturante was the buger who added the tip, he was also the owner. I hope people stamp out this tipping crap in Europe ASAP, its bogus, waiting staff here are quite well paid and don't need a tip.
