Do you agree or disagree: If you can't afford to tip, don't go out to eat?

Yet, he loved to go out to eat. I would not go with him. It's embarrassing to be around someone that cheap and with such poor manners and disregard for other people's time and work. I told him if you can't afford to tip, buy something from the grocery story, order takeout, but do not take up space in a restaurant or waste a sever's time.
