Tipping Podcast on NPR

We have not had a tipping discussion recently Here's something to kick off a new round.

But today, we tip after we get served, not before. And, according to one expert we talk to on today's podcast, the quality of service we perceive makes a tiny difference in how much we tip. (The weather has a comparable influence on tip size.)
According to one theory, when you get down to it, we don't even tip for good service. We tip because we feel guilty.
