How are we doing when it comes to tipping in North Dakota---we're pretty much in the middle of the pack.  IF I get good service at a restaurant and the meal is good, then I will leave a nice tip---maybe 20%-25%.  BUT---if the service is horrible and they screw up the meal---generally I will leave a very small tip of a dime or quarter, so the server will know that I didn't forget to tip, but I was VERY UNHAPPY with their service----so maybe the server will do a better job next time!  Here's the results of survey so you know who tips the most and least!!
