If your waiter does an adequate job, which is the standard?

So, I am a waitress, and this convo really irks me. I think if the waiter does an adequate job (meaning he/she didn't screw up anything) the standard baseline tip is 20%. HOWEVER, many times (when service was flawless) I have seen 15% tips and lower! I think everyone should work in the service industry once to see how what it's like serving some of the a#$ holes out there, and then base their tip on THAT experience. :)
