ok, this is no doubt going to cause some wank, but I am honestly curious about this.

Why is it that certain professions are expected to receive tips for doing their jobs and not others?

Do we not expect that everyone doing a job should perform it to the best of their ability and not that IF they do a good job then they should be tipped extra?

I can understand if you, personally, feel that a person has gone out of their way to help you that you would want to tip them, but why do so many people expect it for mediocre or usual-for-the-job service?
