I always tip. WTH, it ain't much.

I don't tip 20% on a pick-up order, though.

It's the right thing to do.

Trash gonna trash by not giving a dollar or two on pick up orders.

Very rarely. I have to be feeling very generous. They didn't do shite.

But I also have a huge problem with tipping in general. Why are we the only fricking country in the world where servers/etc depend primarily on the customer for their pay?

Everywhere else tipping is basically a slap in the face, right? Like saying "Im better than you, so here's 2 dollars for bringing me a drink."

That's fine if you believe this, but I hope you also tip the person who bags your groceries and the person who brings you your clothes at the cleaners, among others. Tipping is reserved for people who provide a service. Handing me my food over a counter on a to go order isn't service. People who don't tip to go orders aren't "trashy."

tip if you want to tip. Don't tip if you don't want to tip.

It really is that simple.

I am probably guilty of tipping too much. I have two kids in the business, so I know what goes on, and I try to offset the difference.

When I've been traveling overseas, tipping is not customary. It seemed extremely uncommon. Businesses manage to pay people a regular wage. How in the world can we not figure this out? It should be on the place of employment to pay their employees.

This is an issue now.

When traveling, I really notice this. The people who work the go-carts in pigeon forge had tip jars. Tour guides have signs asking for tips.

Every business with a counter has a tip jar.

Now musicians in clubs, I get that tip jar. But most of the time I am put off by tip jars. Though if it is a place I frequent, I tip. It pays to.
People remember you. My local vietnamese restaurant calls me when specials go up, as I eat there once a week. Even get freebies. A little tip and conversation at the counter never hurts.

They're handing me a bag of food. Why do they require a tip? If you start tipping for these basic services where do you stop?

Do you tip the convenience store clerk for ringing up your coffee and beef jerkey?

We wonder why American society is screwy.
