    Steak is cooked wrong, they were really late with a dish, etc.

    Waiter has no control over those things, yet he gets all the anger and no gratuity.

    because they're low class jerk offs looking for any excuse to pay less.

    If you get a great meal but the waiter or waitress is bad do you make it a point to tip the cook instead?

    Exactly, so the waiter or waitress rips the cook a new one.. and your point gets across.

    yes, and they're consistently awesome and get a minimum 20% tip. I honestly don't remember the last time I tipped less.

    I don't have a percentage I tip, but I eat at the same places alot.
    Always the same tip just because I plan on going back.
    Once in a while you get a shitty new waitstaff but I just shrug it off.
