Ask the Internet: How to Tip a Waiter?

This week, I’m asking the internet to settle an argument once and for all.

Q: At a restaurant, do you include tax when you calculate the tip for your server?

A: My sister (an ex-waitress) and I believe you should include tax. Others whom we love and admire say, "Nuh-unh."

What about you, sweet readers? Do you include tax? Why or why not?

I’ll tally the votes/opinions and reveal the winner in Friday’s Top 10 post. It should solve this debate forevermore, for the rest of eternity, until the end of time. No one will ever ask the question again.
