In the US, tipping is one of the most hotly contented topics when you go out for dinner.

People have a load of varying views on how much should be left on top of a bill, including tip and tax.

But one man has come up with a solution to all this... not tipping at all.

Taking to TikTok, the man in question revealed he'd saved over £120 ($153) a week by forsaking a tip wherever he goes.

And he's clearly proud of it. His name on TikTok is even @idonttip...

Watch his video below:

The TikToker showed a video of themselves leaving a grand total of £0 under every transaction they made.

Their final saving came to $152.92, which sounds impressive, but doing some digging it becomes clear they must have been spending a lot to reach that figure.

As per UNILAD, a 10 percent tip means they were spending $1,529.90, while 20 per cent would mean their costs were at $764.60.

So... you're unlikely to save as much even if you are on board with his controversial method of saving.

Reacting to the video, people had some feelings nonetheless.

Some were in support of the TikToker's bold strategy, with one dubbing it "a trend I can get behind".

Meanwhile, others weren't happy.

"What the f*ck is wrong w u. service workers in LA live off tips. you’re an as*h*le (sic)" said a third.

"Counter service is fine but if you’re not tipping when you sit down at a restaurant u shouldn’t eat there," a third chimed in, striking a middle ground.

There have always been passionate views about tipping across the US.

Whilst it has long been seen as proper to tip in sit down eateries, the rules now often extend to counter service spots and even self checkouts.

Some states have different laws and regulations around tipping, and how much of the money actually ends up in staff's pocket.

In fact, some allow businesses to pay staff smaller salaries should their hourly pay come to the same as minimum wage after tips.

Given the response to this issue, tipping culture is still as divisive as ever. Where do you stand on it?
