Tipping seems to be an imported practice that, in a country that has a pretty fair wages system, should not be allowed to grow.

And now you know why, as a young man waiting tables in the U.S., I avoided foreigners like the plague and gave them lowest priority in service: because most people can't be bothered to check on customary norms in the place where they're visiting.

Had they a fair wages system in your country like we do here at that time, you would not have needed to Steve. Common courtesy towards all should come from the heart - not be treated as a commodity to be bought and sold.

So how much longer do you think it will be before they finally wake up to their stupid selves over there and make just that come about?

Well, even if the tone of my second sentence conveys the impression that I felt pissed-off; is not the content of the one above it absolutely true?

As an opinion, it's not true or false; it simply is. You're forgetting "fair" is in the eye of the beholder, and that boiled down, "fair" means "I like it" and "unfair" means "I don't like it".
