How I Calculate a Proper Tip

I was just thinking about tipping while looking at a receipt just now, and decided to let the world in on how I come up with the appropriate amount (in this case at least).
I always tip 20%, because it's the upper end of what I've heard to be the spectrum 15-20% and it makes for relatively easy calculation.
My check was $14.41, divide by 10 (move decimal point left one space) to get 1.44 and multiply by 2 to get to 20%, I saw 1.44 was close to 1.5 so I just made it an even $3 which comes to a 20.8% tip.
