Always. I was a server though, so I understand how much it sucks to clean up after messy kids.

I wouldn't waste wipes on the table cuz don't they have to wipe it between customers anyway? Although some shadier places I've been too look like they've never cleaned the tables lol.

There was only one time I didn't and it was because it was shredded cheese and I was trying to pick it up but both kids were having a fit so I got what I could and then left a big tip.

Yeah, I would clean up my kids mess. Why be an a*****e and make the bus boy's job even harder, just because I can?

I pick up after my kids because I'm not a snob. But we don't tip, wait staff get a normal hourly wage like everyone.
Also if we eat at McDonald or whatever I always dispose of my own rubbish, I hate seeing people just get up and leave their shit all over the tables.

I don't clean it up but I do leave a generous tip behind with my mess. :)

It's the decent thing to do, pick up what you can. I even keep my hotels/cottages clean when we go out of town. I don't like anything being dirty, but I guess that might be the clean freak in me. I also tip over 20% it's there job to give me and my family good service & get our order right, not be our janitor.

I don't know where you live but in most states wait staff make a greatly reduced hourly wage because Tips are intended to be their main source on income. Here in Ohio tipped employees such as wait staff make $3.85 an hour. In Texas they make $3.25. Federal tipped minimum wage is $2.13 an hour. Get off your damn high horse, if you worked for tips you would understand why we need them.

If it's a few little pieces, no. If it's a legit MESS, yes. I've been a waitress and I always found it rude for someone to leave an AWFUL mess.

Yes. Or at the very least I ask for a broom (sometimes it's easier to sweep up rice and what not) but what sucks about that is sometimes they tell me not to worry about it and then I still feel bad because I didn't clean it up.
