The key word here is service. I am in the service industry myself and I know it is entirely up the the customer to leave a tip. If you give good service and a good experience then they usually will leave you something. There is no written law saying that you must leave a certain percentage. For that matter there is no law saying you have to tip at all.
I remember a few years ago my wife and I were eating at popular downtown restraunt and received very poor service and I left a lower tip, but I did tip. On the way out the door the waitress made a comment to my wife and I therefore went back in and complained to the manager.
To those that work in a service related industry and rely on tips, GIVE GOOD SERVICE AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED FOR IT.
I think she must have been the same one that tried to make me turn right from a straight and turn lane in front of Walmart last month. Needless to say, I waited for the light to turn and went straight anyway. She was flashing a badge and honking at me from her PERSONAL CAR. I am sure that if she was on a TRUE emergency call which I doubt, I would have gotten a ticket. If you ask me it was either a lady cop on a power trip or she was flashing her husbands badge. By the way I am a middle aged white male. I also hope that the North Charleston Police Chief reads this and warns his officers of improper conduct towards the citizens of North Charleston.
