Something that has always rubbed the wrong way is that tips are rarely given to kitchen staff. Having lots of friends who still slave away in kitchens (early/mid 20s), I know how hard and thankless the job is. It doesn't make sense to me that the person who opens my bottle of wine and remembers that I ordered the steak deserves ten dollars bonus for doing their job, but the person who prepared the perfectly cooked steak deserves none of it.
