30% is steep. My oldest DD is a Bob Evans server, and if what she tells me is right, your 80 y.o. friend doesn't reflect what lots of people (give or take...) her age do. Some of them are stuck in either the spare change days or the days of 10%. And that's for attentive service while they occupy a table too long and prevent the server from turning it over.....not good. Your 30% may have offset a "stiffer," too.The Baron has noticed that the people who tip the most generously tend to be those who wait tables for a living or who have done so in the past. 30 to 33 percent among this group is not uncommon. He guesses it's because such people know what it is like to have to depend on tips for quite a large portion of one's income.
