that's exactly right ... TS said to "take it up with the boss, for not paying them enough" ... if you don't make enough money to tip someone that is serving you dinner and drinks, then just stay home and don't tip the wifey ... simple as that
i'm a very heavy tipper as well ... Like Jose said, if they keep my drinks coming, I reward the server/bartender
