Millennials get a bad rap when it comes to a lot of things in life. They're accused by older generations of being lazy, whiney, weak, and a thousand other adjectives that don't really add up when you look at the facts. However, the same can't be said for the claim that millennials are generally pretty awful when it comes to the whole tipping situation at their fancy, small-plate restaurants, microbreweries, and artisanal coffee shops.

According to a recent survey of 1,000 adults conducted by CreditCards.com shows that the millennial age group - 18-to-37-year-olds - does a crappy job of rewarding their servers when dining out.

But why are millennials so crappy at tipping?

Well, the truth is, millennials would rather pay more for their food and do away with the tipping system altogether. According to the survey, around 27 percent of millennials say they favor that option to the existing system.

"Tipping at sit-down restaurants has always been the standard in the U.S., but that's not necessarily the case in other countries," says CreditCards.com senior industry analyst Matt Schulz in regards to the survey. "We're seeing younger adults tipping less, and even showing a greater preference toward eliminating tipping altogether, even if it means paying more on the bill."

And while you're here, let's take a look at a selection of other discoveries from the recent survey:

  • Nearly 55 percent of the survey takers at least 65 years old tip at least 20 percent when dining. This is the highest out of any age group (no surprise there).
  • Midwesterners and Northeasterners tend to tip better than their counterparts in the South and West.
  • Would you believe it that people with higher incomes and college degrees believe in leaving more generous tips?
  • And the least surprising discovery from the survey is that women typically tip higher than their male counterparts.

No matter what age group and income bracket you fall under, don't be like those crappy millennials (well, 10 percent of them) who don't leave a tip at all.

But while some millennials would be okay with paying more and doing away with tipping, around 10 percent of the responders inside that age bracket don't want to wait for a new system and instead simply just don't tip.

Don't be like those guys... Those guys are stingy, tight-wad subhumans. This generation gets enough crap from older age groups, don't do everything you can do prove them right.
