25 Jewish Blogs you should read daily

I get asked pretty frequently to recommend blogs for people to read or which blogs I choose to read. Within the Jewish Blogging World AKA Jewish Blogsphere, there are thousands of blogs, many of them worthwhile reads. Unfortunately time does not allow for daily reads. I have several daily reads and all of them lie within the following list. I was originally going to do a guide to the Jewish Blogsphere, the task proved too great, then I figured I should just make a post more devoted to the blogs and news sites that I read to stay up on my Jewish current events.

Every one of the blogs featured in this list is of importance to someone following what’s happening in the Jewish world – most of these sites are not personal blogs, and generally speaking I don’t read many personal blogs, save for a few of the shidduch blogs for ideas and the latest trends.I do plan on doing several guides to Jewish blogs, split up by categories, in the near future. For now, the following list is what I think Jewish bloggers trying to stay on their game should try to read frequently.

This list is not in any particular order and reflects what I think is important:

Jewlicious: Supporting Israel through cool arty and video stuff – they also do some kick ass festivals

Hirhurim: Brilliant Torah, Jewish philosophy and current events. Don’t be fooled by the terrible design!

Jewschool: Sure they didn’t let me write for them because I offended some women Rabbis, but that doesn’t negate the fact it’s a good and important read.

Dov Bear: Orthodoxy and liberalism usually don’t mix, Dov Bear makes an exception.

What War Zone?: Finally someone that thinks the middle east is funny!

Jew and the Carrot: Jewish site devoted to food and environment amongst other randomness.

Bintel Blog: The Forward Blog – do I really need to tell you why Jews should read the Forvetz?

Tablet: Your one stop shop for Jewish arts and culture.

The Jewish Channel: Imagine if you could get your Jewish news for the week in a professionally filmed news broadcast.

Mixed Multitudes: The blog of My Jewish Learning, don ‘t let Jewish and learning scare you away, they aren’t trying to get you to drink the punch.

Failed Messiah: One of the few Jewish Bloggers that made it – a real investigative journalist that pisses orthodox Jews off because he’s usually right, and how many Jewish bloggers can boast that they break stories to major news outlets.

eJewish Philanthropy: Anyone who runs a non-profit or works in the world of non-profits must read this blog.

The Kvetcher: Kvetching about orthodoxy and other matters in a well written and interesting format.

Emes Ve-Emunah: Rabbi Harry Maryles on orthodox Jewish thought and philosophy.

Wolfish Musings: The absurdities of orthodoxy and more – written by someone who is orthodox.

Cross Currents: Orthodox Jewish Rabbis and writers on today’s issues – place a finger on the pulse of orthodoxy.

The Muquata: Being a right wing pro-Israel blog can be fun too

News sites I glance at frequently:

The Jewish Star: one of the only really good religious newspapers

JTA: the only Jewish news wire

The Forward

The Jewish Week

Vos Iz Neias: I check this site the most by far, read the comments, they will make you cringe.

  • This Jewschool writer says thanks for the shoutout! I’m new-ish — so not knowing there was any blog drama between us I can’t take responsibility for it — but I appreciate the compliment and bringing our name to your readers!

  • Thanks for the mention!

    (I’m also a serious news-provider during crisis times….)

  • Cross Currents: Orthodox Jewish Rabbis and writers on today’s issues – place a finger on the pulse of orthodoxy.

    Seems too generous. More like “Cross Currents: Orthodox Jewish Rabbis carry water for the Christian Right and the Republican Party.

    I think Modern Orthodox and Heterodox is the most original and important Jewish blog out there.

    I love love love Jewschool; read it everyday. I also like Aliza Hausman’s blog, though I guess that falls under the category of “personal blogs”. Badhebrew is fun, if not really Jewish per se. I used to read Danya Ruttenberg’s blog religiously (hahaha) but she recently had a baby and what with that and being a rabbi and an author, she isn’t updating anymore. Sigh. Stuff Young Jewish Adults Like is funny, too.

    And the tumblrs F*ck Yeah Jewish Men and F*ck Yeah Jewish Women are always fun, if really heavy on the same celebrities (Seth Rogen, Natalie Portman… we get they’re Jews. Enough already).

  • Good points…I would note that as someone who really doesn’t write on blogs much (in fact, this may be my first post), I don’t think the term “lurker” is very becoming to a non-posting reader. It’s not your fault really , but perhaps the blogosphere could come up with a better, non-creepy name for the 90% of us that enjoy reading the posts.

    Hey thanks, this was kind, helpful, and generous

    and how many Jewish bloggers can boast that they break stories to major news outlets.

    I did it once, though not one outlet credited me. And let me second what JA said about this:
    Cross Currents: Orthodox Jewish Rabbis and writers on today’s issues – place a finger on the pulse of orthodoxy.

    Seriously? They’re little better than talk radio. Same values, same paranoia, same shrill tone, same stupid arguments.

  • Philanthropists and anti Jihadists wake up please!

    Since my previous article titled ‘Hindu persecution, anti-Semitism and anti-Jihadist media’ got published here and there, I continued to receive several emails from people asking, “How calm the Western media is still unaware of the fight of Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury against militant Islam”. I really did not have the answer!

    Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury is a self-claimed ‘Muslim Zionist’ in Bangladesh, who runs an English language newspaper named Weekly Blitz from the capital city of Dhaka since 2003. Editorial policy of this newspaper is unique, because, it is the only newspaper in the Muslim world, openly declaring it as an “anti-Jihadist newspaper”.

    Mr. Choudhury, a recipient of prestigious ‘Moral Courage Award’ from American Jewish Committee in 2007; ‘Freedom to Write Award’ from PENUSA in 2006; ‘Monaco Media Award’ from Prince Albert of Monaco in 2007 is a man of rarest virtue. He is a journalist, writer, lyricist, movie director and defender of Israel.

    I was simply amazed at the courage and firm commitment of this man in fighting militant Islam as well defending Israel for years, under severe adversity. Let me quote here a few of the comments from the international press on Mr. Choudhury.

    New York Sun in its editorial few years back said: “Mr. Choudhury is a man in the mold of such heroes of freedom as Vaclav Havel and Lech Walesa.”

    In its editorial the Washington Times said, “The United States must encourage people like Mr. Choudhury to speak out. But when they do, it must also do all it can to protect them. Freeing Mr. Choudhury will tell others like him that when you stand against Islamists, the United States will stand with you.”

    The Jerusalem Post said, “Despite the dire circumstances in which he finds himself, Choudhury remains strong, upbeat and determined.”

    The Jewish Week said, “In a world where radical Islam is on the march, threatening moderate Muslims and non-Muslims alike, outspoken and fearless individuals like Mr. Choudhury deserve our full support. It is they, after all, who are on the front lines.”

    Canada Free Press editor Judy McLeod wrote: “… Shoaib Choudhury is in reality a Muslim hero, at a time when a terrorism wary world most needs one.”

    There are hundreds of such commentaries on this man available on the net. The New York Times, wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, The Australian, Arutz Sheva etc have already published editorial commentaries on the struggle of Mr. Choudhury.

    In brief, Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury was arrested on November 29, 2003 at Dhaka International Airport in Bangladesh on his way to Israel for attending a peace conference. Authorities in Dhaka tortured him during 10-days interrogation, broke his leg with field hockey stick and pushed him into solitary confinement at Dhaka Central Jail, where he was detained for long 17 months. He was denied medical treatment and in 2004, when his mother died, Bangladeshi government did not allow him to attend his mother’s funeral and the bail-on-parole was ignored.

    While Choudhury was suffering inside prison and members of his family at home, one Jewish activist named Dr. Richard Benkin (a residence of Mount Period Prospect in Illinois) stood up and continued his battle in freeing this extremely courageous journalist and peace activist. Dr. Benkin knocked the doors of a large number of US Senators and members of Congress. But, the only Senator, who refused to do anything in support of Mr. Choudhury, is Barack Hussain Obama. Congressman Mark Steven Kirk and his entire Congressional team joined wholeheartedly the effort of freeing Shoaib Choudhury. Rep. Mark Steven Kirk met Bangladeshi ambassador in Washington DC and demanded his immediate release. After numerous meetings between Mark Kirk and Bangladeshi embassy as well as unrelenting efforts by Dr. Benkin, Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury was released from prison in 2005 (April). Right after his release, joyous Richard Benkin called Shoaib Choudhury’s residence and asked him to “take rest for few days”. But, Choudhury said “brother, I am not brought out of prison for taking rest. I must continue my mission. Otherwise, why I am free?”

    Dr. Benkin recollects that memory every time with heavy emotional voice and tears in eyes.

    On getting released from prison, Mr. Choudhury resumed the publication of his newspaper Weekly Blitz (English language newspaper) and Weekly Jamjamat (Vernacular newspaper). In July 2006, his office was bombed by Islamic militancy group named Khatmey Nabuat Andolan. In October same year, his office was attacked by thugs belonging to the ruling party and Mr. Choudhury was physically assaulted.

    On 18th February 2008, he was abducted at gun point by the members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB). At this stage again, Dr. Richard Benkin and Rep. Mark Steven Kirk took prompt initiatives which ultimately saved the life of this courageous editor.

    Lately, on February 22, 2009, Mr. Shoaib Choudhury’s office was attacked by a gang of armed thugs accompanied by members of Bangladeshi military intelligence. He was again physically assaulted along with other staffs of his newspapers.

    In 2009, publication of Weekly Jamjamat had to be suspended due to severe financial crisis. It may be mentioned here that, entrepreneurs and business establishments in Bangladesh refrain from placing any advertisement in either Weekly Blitz or Weekly Jamjamat because of its anti-Islamist and pro-Israel editorial policy.

    Few weeks back, Shoaib Choudhury made an appeal through editorial column in his newspaper asking immediate help for continuation of the publication of Weekly Blitz as well resuming the publication of Weekly Jamjamat. Several newspapers in the West as well in Israel also published editorials in favor of helping Mr. Choudhury and his newspapers as well his peace mission.

    So far, there isn’t any good news except some help from Hudson Institute and Middle East Forum. Eminent writer and scholar Dr. Daniel Pipes as well NYC based activist Ms. Nina Rosenwald came forward with some help, at least to save Weekly Blitz for a couple of months. Should other philanthropists, especially those opposing Jihad and willing to help the only anti-Jihadist and pro-Israel newspaper in the Muslim world to continue, come forward, things would have been resolved any time.

    I personally phoned the office of Mr. Shoaib Choudhury last Wednesday to get the latest update on the situation. They said, for months Mr. Choudhury and his team are trying to get some fund wither as grant or soft-term loan, which would ensure smooth publication of both the newspapers as well continuation of the peace work.

    I was amazed to learn as to how this ‘One Man Army’ in the Muslim world is continuing battle against militant Islam and Jihad and so far succeeded in getting Hizbut Tahrir as well a publication of another Islamic militancy group Hizbut Towhid banned. Both are anti-Semitic groups with heavy funding from Afro-Arab sources as well Islamic Charity (Zakaat) is continuing various types of propaganda against Jews, Christians and Israel.

    If you haven’t yet read Weekly Blitz, I would strongly recommend reading this newspaper to understand the important role it is playing in today’s world. Link to the newspaper is here.

    Also it is my hope that major philanthropist groups and individuals in the world will forthwith come forward in extending their support for the extremely precious and important works of Mr. Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury.

    Wish this write up would get into the attention of philanthropists like Lawrence Ellison, Sheldon Adelson, Sergey Brin, Larry Page, Michael Dell, Steve Ballmer, Carl Icahn, Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, Samuel Newhouse, Rupert Murdoch, Robert A Iger, Philippe P Dauman, Jeff Zucker, David Westin, Donald Graham, Mortimer Zuvkerman, Arthur O Sulzberger Jr, Mel Karmazin, Joanne Lipman, Jann Wenner, Richard S Fuld Jr, Lloyd C Blankfein, Charles R Schwab, Alan D Schwartz, Bruce Wasserstein, Dr. Joseph Ackerman, James Dimon, Blake Gossman, Larry Ellison, Oleg Deripaska, Sumner Redstone, Sir Philip Green, Joseph Safra, Esther Koplowitz, Alicia Koplowitz, Ralph Lauren, Nicky Oppenheimer, David Geffen, David & Simon Reuben, Stef Wertheimer, Shari Arison, Lev Leviev, Yitzhak Tshuva, Sammy Ofer & family, Arnon Milchan, Steven Spielberg, Lloyd Dorfman, Richard Desmond and many others.

  • sagir ahmed bhai

    This article about Shoaib Choudhury is a phony posting, most likely put up by Choudhury himself. He is a freak for attention from the Western world and he rips them off by “borrowing” large sums of money that he has no intention of returning. His criminal activities are under investigation by the authorities. BTW, I am a secularist.

  • I recently created a new blog. It is called “Tell you children”. The title is based on the concept of the commandment to tell our children about the history of the Exodus from Egypt. The format of the blog is basically a daily post about a major event that happened in Jewish history. So for example today’s post was about the battle for Jerusalem during the 1948 war which started today. Yesterday’s was about the Capture of Eli Cohen May 18th 1965. So if you guys could check it out – and make suggestions or comments, and help it start up it would be appreciated. I try to write matter-of-factly on this blog so everyone can enjoy it. Thanks!

  • Reltih Nrober

    First I would just like to say that I think what happened to the Jews between 1945 and 1948 was horrible and horrific. I would not want to see Jews go through anything like that again. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

    With that said…I feel Jewish people need to cut it out. I truly get sick of Jews always calling people an “Anti-Semtic” when they question the Holocust. Personally, I believe that the Holocust happened, I just don’t believe the numbers that are currently being given as to how many people actually died during the Holocust. In Aushwitz, where the Holocust happened, there is a stone that says only 5 million people died. If you listen to these Zionist controlled news reporters today, the numbers have escalated to 11 million people. I’m sorry…but I don’t believe that. How do you go from 5 million people to 11 million people? Every year the number of dead rises and the Holocust has been over since 1948. It seems like the higher the number of dead during the Holocust, the more people are suppose to feel sympathy. Another thing…how come you Jews don’t take Farrakhan up on his offer to debate facts? Jews call Farrakhan an “Anti-Semite”, yet we haven’t heard one thing from the Jewish community that proves that what Farrakhan says about Jews is a lie. Farrakhan gets his information on Jews from Jewish scholars; and because Farrakhan is well-educated in Jewish history and he follows the Muslim religion, Jews won’t debate him for fear that he might expose to the world the truth about Jews. If there is one thing Jews hate, it’s for the truth to be known. So again, how come Jews don’t take Farrakhan up on his offer to debate? Farrakhan has given many invitations to Jewish scholars to debate him on anything that he says, and Jews punk-out on the invitation. It’s easier for Jews to TRY and dis-credit Farrakhan by calling him an “Anti-Semite” and a “Radical” rather then prove that what he says is false. Jews always try to corner-the-market on sympathy by playing the “victim”. Any time someone questions Jews they get called an “Anti-Semite”. You would rather call someone an “Anti-Semite” then answer their questions. If it looks like Jews are the aggressors, then you call the individual who is just telling the facts an “Anti-Semite” to dis-credit what their saying and avoid answering to the charges. Personally, I believe Jews are cowards. Jews always want to hide behind the Holocust when people question things about Jewish history.

    With that said…Farrakhan’s supporters are getting bigger. He opened a lot of eyes and ears at the 2012 Saviours Day Convention. There were a lot of other nationalities at that event other then black people. Personally, I’m not a Muslim, but I will listen to anyone that can back up what they say. If you can provide facts about the claims you make, then I am a believer. Farrakhan always provides facts and it’s usually from out of Jewish books. I would like to hear what the Jews have to say about those facts Farrakhan lays out, but Jews run cowardly to the media to TRY and dismiss Farrakhan’s charges by calling him an “Anti-Semite”. But you know what? Slowly, people are beginning to see the light. People are growing tired of Zionists and their relentless selfishness to do for Israel all the time. Israel wants the Middle-Eastern Muslim countries to destroy their nuclear weapons, yet it has been said that Israel has over 200 nuclear weapons. Israel wants weapons inspectors to inspect the weapons in Iran and the other Muslim countries in the Middle-East, but Israel won’t allow any inspectors inside their country. What is it that you have to hide Israel?! What’s with the double-standard?

    • Jewy McJewburg

      Please crawl back into the swamp from where you came.

      mass murder is not a numbers game. killing 5 people is a massacre of epic proportions — especially to the families of those 5 people. in 1770 such a massacre occurred in Boston — changing world history. but since you seem to care about numbers, historians put the civilian deaths at the hands of the nazis to approximate 11 million people, of which 6 million were jews, 1 million of those jews were children. they would have been here to talk to you about truth, but they were murdered.

      your hatred toward jews is unwelcome here. your low intellectual capacity makes me unwilling to call you anti-anything, since you don’t possess to capacity to understand. just go away and enjoy life elsewhere. don’t procreate. then die.

      • What is your point?
        Every non-Jew knows Jews are fundamentally liars. They lie mercilessly even to themselves. Jews lie about everything. Meaning by everything literally “every single thing”. You can’t have a simple truth from a Jew. Even or the most insignificant thing. I guess there must be some psychiatric, anthropological and sociological explanations for that lying compulsive behavior. There’s no more racist and disgusting slogan than “the chosen people.” It looks like derived from that slogan, they are taught and trained in the synagogues not to try and do anything but oppress peoples. For that purpose they lie again and again. Jews give God a bad name

    I am very concerned that I am missing something about our President and would appreciate someone filling me in. He clearly opposes Jews and Israel in particular, so why support him? And lets not bring his pitiful record of taxation, debt, spending and the economy. What’s most frightening is his foreign policy and plans to cut our military. So, please, tell me what I am missing that causes this President to command the support from the Jewish community that he does. Thank you.

  • These viruses will no longer stand before me .I’m done . Time has come. Through the military I Have made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem and seen all of what has come and lit the fire in side Jesus grave. I fear in god for years . God hid me from high priests and blinded me from reality until i started to believe in myself and figured out In the name of God from the davidic line, that “I am the messiah” and this is the new age. All those who believe in me will start this new age process and peace will be created on earth and i will reside in Israel and rebuild the city and there will be no more Hashem’s [God’s] wars illegal drugs in war in that city and in this world. I will show you the path of treasury and secrecy and there will be no more poverty. There will be no more sickness in health and we will overcome death. Since i was born in america I will have good relations with all government officials . and my first personal gift to the world is freedom of choice Oligarchy and Centralizing Power.

    Hi. I am doing an assignment for school and I need to get references of conversations with Jewish people to answer some questions about Jewish Self-identity and how that connects to Jewish Marriage. It would be great if you could answer these questions for me:
    What do certain rituals within a marriage ceremony, such as the breaking of the glass, mean to Jewish people?
    What does self-identity mean to Jewish people and how does it differ from other religions? Why?
    What does marriage mean to Jewish people?
    Is marriage significant to a Jewish person’s self-identity?
    How does marriage affect a Jewish person’s self-identity?
    What do certain rituals within a marriage ceremony, such as the breaking of the glass, mean to Jewish people?

    Dear Matt,

    Can you write something about people who don’t tip??? I see you’ve posted about people who are rude to customer service and people who leave their carts in the parking lot… what about people who don’t leave tips. I’d like to tell you about what happened to me. I’m a waitress at a steakhouse in a different state from you. Myself and my coworkers get stiffed all the time by people. Especially older people who drive expensive cars to get here then order expensive drinks and expensive entrees and leave a 5 percent tip. It’s so infuriating!!! This is how I feed my kids … I’m a mom… recently divorced.. and I take care of my family through tips! Yesterday a couple came in, stayed at a table for two hours, ordered appetizers, entrees and desserts… I took good care of them… they even complimented me on my great service…. and then they left a note on the reciept saying they “unfortunately” couldn’t “afford” to leave a tip. They just spent 80 DOLLARS ON THEIR MEAL!! You can afford to spend 80 dollars on one dinner but you can’t afford to tip??? Sorry Matt this just makes me so angry and its a really common problem. I thought maybe you could talk about it to bring to people’s attention.

    If you use this just call me MJ.

    This woman has challenged me to speak out against non-tipping tyrants, and I could not live with myself if I failed to answer her call. I will address my response not to her, but to the tightwads who torment her and her fellow toilers in the grueling, thankless “service industry.”

    This is the least that I can do. I love to eat — it’s my favorite pastime — and eating out is always a treat. Yet I know that this experience requires the labor of many people; labor that I could not do. I lack the patience and temperament required to deal with the daily onslaught of pompous cheapskates and verbally abusive egomaniacs.

    And now to speak directly to a certain terrifying subset of this species. These are the lowest, most shameless sorts of customers. Their existence is a constant, chilling reminder that evil exists in the world. They are the non-tippers:

    Dear Non-Tippers,

    Are you thinking about going out tonight? Considering a nice little jaunt to that cozy steakhouse down on main street? Looking forward to a pleasant evening of being fed and waited upon by strangers? Maybe catching a flick after dinner? Good. Good for you. Sounds like a splendid evening. I’m happy that you’ve got the money to treat yourselves.

    Oh, but you don’t have it in your budget to tip your server?

    Then it would seem that you, in fact, don’t have the money to treat yourselves after all.

    My friends, if you have 35 bucks to drop on a meal, but you don’t have the 7 dollars to leave a 20 percent tip, then what are you doing in a restaurant in the first place? You need to hire a financial adviser (well, maybe see if you can get a free consult) because it’s just plain unwise to blow your entire net worth on a couple of entrees at Applebee’s. Save your 35 dollar nest egg, run to Walmart, buy a box of spaghetti for a dollar, and enjoy a home cooked meal.

    For a while in my early twenties, after I paid my bills for the month, I usually had about 30 or 40 dollars left over. I often drove by sit-down restaurants and thought, “Hmmm, I wish I could pull in and have a bite to eat.” But then I remembered, “Oh, I’m broke; I have no money, I’m poor,” and so I went back to my apartment and ate peanut butter and jelly or ramen noodles. These are the traditional cultural dishes of Broke People — not big, juicy hamburgers at high class joints like Chili’s.

    Oh, but you aren’t broke? You’re going tipless this evening out of some diluted “principle”?

    Why should you have to tip, you ask?

    Well, you don’t. You aren’t required. Just like you aren’t required to hold the door open for an elderly woman or offer a beverage to a thirsty house guest. You don’t HAVE to do these things. Most of us partake in these conventions because we’re civilized and decent. You don’t HAVE to be civilized and decent. But maybe you can at least do me this favor: if you aren’t going to tip, and you know that from the outset, have the courage of your convictions and inform your waiter upfront. When your server comes to welcome you and give you the daily specials, kindly inform him of the situation. “Good evening, Brad. I’m happy to be here. I won’t be tipping you tonight. Anyway, do we get free refills on the house salad?”

    To withhold this information is a lie by omission. You know that Brad will be working under the assumption that a tip is forthcoming. You, therefore, benefit from the illusion of a potential tip, even though there isn’t any potential for a tip at all. This is a lie. You’re lying. You’re being manipulative. Stop it.

    And what is this principle on which you stand?

    I often hear that the owners of the restaurants should pay a decent wage and then nobody would have to tip. Why should YOU have to pay the server’s wage, you insist.

    Good point. Let’s require all restaurant owners to pay their wait staff, what, like 12-15 dollars an hour? Yes, now we don’t have to tip and everyone is ha-

    Oh. Wait. What’s this? All of prices on the menu just doubled? No more 2 for 20 deals? No more free refills? No more 9 dollar burgers and 12 dollar steaks? No more obscenely humungous portion sizes?

    What’s going on here? You’re telling me that the financial resources of the restaurant’s owners are finite, and a massive increase in operating costs must be logically offset by a hike in prices and a reduction in services?

    Oh no! Now my favorite joints are closing earlier! Hold on — no more happy hour?!

    This has gone too far.

    I want good food, low prices, huge portions, unlimited refills, happy hour special, fast service AND I don’t want to be expected to tip! Kindly point me to the wormhole that will transport me to the dimension where such a thing is possible.

    See, non-tippers benefit from the tip structure, and would not be willing to forfeit those benefits, yet they don’t want to pony up the tips themselves. They reap the rewards of the tip system while simultaneously pretending to protest it. They’re hypocrites.

    Of course, the main justification offered by non-tippers is not so much based on principle as it is on punishment. They say they will not tip when the service is “bad.” But you’ll notice that these people somehow encounter “bad” service almost every time they go out to eat. What an odd thing. They must be cursed.

    Personally, I tip. I almost always tip well. Twenty percent is the baseline minimum. But, where some customers complain about how they “can’t find good service,” I am usually quite pleased with the wait staff I encounter at most establishments. Where non-tippers constantly find excuses to punitively withhold tips, I generally find reasons to add an additional 5 or 10 percent to the pot. This isn’t because I’m lucky or generous, it’s because I’m not a pompous, picky, spoiled brat; constantly looking for the smallest reason to feel slighted by customer service workers.

    I’d like to hear the thought process when the bill comes and you non-tippers go through your cheapskate mental checklist.

    Hmmm. Well, my glass remained empty for 97 seconds while my waitress handled a party of 27 two tables down. Sorry, I don’t care what else she’s doing. I need prompt refills. That’ll cost her 3 percent. Oh, and I didn’t think she was smiley enough. There goes another 3 percent. I asked for ketchup but it didn’t come. And then I had to ask again! The horror! That shaves another 5 percent. The fries were warm but a little soggy. There goes 2 percent. My meal was late by like a thousand hours! Well, almost. It took 26 minutes or so to come out. I have absolutely no reason to believe that this inconvenience was the fault of my server, but she’s going to have to pay for it. Minus 10 percent. OK, so according to my calculations, she now owes me about 12 dollars.

    From what I’ve seen, the server is usually punished for things that have nothing to do with her. But you non-tippers know this. You’re not out for justice; you’re out to save a few bucks. You tell yourselves stories about how you were victimized by the wait staff just so you can leave no tip and still sleep like a baby at night.

    But we all know the truth about you. You can’t hide your motivations.

    Stop the madness, non-tippers.

    Tip your server. Just tip.

    Trust me, you’ll feel better.
