QotD: A Tip About Tipping

What's your method for calculating a tip?

I calculate the tip based on the time-honoured tradition in NYC, which is double the tax (7.5%) to make the tip 15%. Then I generally round the total amount up to multiple of five. So sometimes it would be close to 15%, other times it would be closer to 20%. Of course if the service had been exceptional, extra tips will be added on top of that.
