My mom (71) doesn’t tip. At all. And as far as I know, never has. She wears the “I don’t tip” credo like a badge of honor. Hence, we don’t go out (together) anymore. I am lucky to have learned tipping etiquette outside of the home.
The reasons for not tipping or tipping insufficiently vary across many cultural, educational, and economic divides. But, education and early exposure to proper dining out etiquette are key in changing the culture from both sides of the banquet table.
