Why do we tip?

by Jadrian

Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) describes why he doesn't tip waitresses. His associates try to convince him along an equity argument by saying it's the right thing to do and how they are exploited because their tips are taxed. Mr. Pink argues from an efficiency standpoint that if the waitresses aren't happy with their pay then they need to relocate. He eventually concedes to tip $1 when he's reminded that he didn't pay for his food.
