Just received some that are too tight, hoping they'll give a little?

Maybe now your a man you should start wearing man sized clothes?

RE: tipping
Fuk'ers are the type to be thrown in jail whilst traveling in a third world country because they absolutely positively refuse to pay police bribes.

The idea of tipping is antiquated and degrading. That being said, if you can afford to eat out you can afford to tip.

Just had a swann NVR system fitted. Wasn't cheap about £700 in total for 4 cameras (1 fancy PTZ dome) but the quality is great for faces and license plates and solid night vision. The cheap ones are way too grainy and almost blind when it's dark.
Actually I think our rottweiler is a better deterrent… but PM if you need the system info.

If I get my pizzas delivered fast and hot then I tip, if not I don't .

Guess what? After I tip once at a place I ALWAYS get my pizza deliver fast and fresh/hot from there. It pays back.

Still possible to choose to tip or not in Australia, I heard it's become mandatory in the US.

Tipping when eating out is standard as long as it is a restaurant. Those chains like Nandos or Wagamamas don't count, they offer takewaway service and are multinational companies that discriminate against all employees in some way so if you work there you are a little stupid and so I'm not tipping you. I'm sure you're nice but you're not getting a tip for being just nice.

As for Pizza. I never ever tip pizza.

1) I don't eat it very often
2) It's never the same person that delivers
3) It's nearly always hot never cold and even if it was I'd just complain to paypal and get my money back.
4) It's pizza, a take-away - why would you tip that?
5) I'm not a trust, charity, so why should I act like one. I finding tipping is actually a bit rude - you're literally showing the person you're tipping that you're embarrassed by them and feel the need to tip out of pity.

I'm sure I have more reasons for not tipping outside of the tipping criteria.

Some people tip because they're genuinely nice and that's ok, respectsble and decent but you have these noble types that just to it to look nice or because you think someone will deficate in your food if you don't.
