Right you are!

I drive my fellow diners nuts because I insist they not weasel out on the tip...any server at my table gets at least 15%. My one son waited tables for ten years before he saved enough $ to enroll in university. I see every waiter/waitress in that light.

BTW He will graduate this spring.

Germans and Japanese are polite yet poor tippers, why is that?

Dunno about Japanese but I can explain why Germans don't tip a lot. In Germany ( like in a lot of European countries ) waiters and waitresses have a good paycheck and are not dependent on tips. Tipping over there is done for really good service and/or very good quality of the food. A 5% tip in Germany shows the same kind of appreciation as a 25% tip over here.
It's just too bad that many Germans and other tourists don't inform themselves about the "tipping rules" before they travel to the USA..
