Make Your Picks
The Shoutbox
I hate tipping! It feels icky, like organized crime running the protection rackets in an old movie. That's just why I don't go out to restaurants anymore or to espresso/Starbucks type places.
I always give tips. Don’t pee into the wind, change your socks before bed, and stay away from moose.
“Tipping is about making sure the people who are performing that service for you are getting paid what they’re owed"

No, tipping is about externalizing labor costs to politeness norms. The number of people now asking for tips for the most mundane of services with tier levels going as high as 40% is insane. I will generally tip, but I am much more likely not to trade with coercive trade partners who attempt extort extra payment.
wakka wakka wait a minute....
Get well soon, fuzzy!
bleh. i feel like cruppiedoo today.

DD, I saw that article too. lotta people replying stuff like "I'll pay a tip to offset a waiting gig's low pay and for providing service, but not for pushing a product over a counter!" I think he was making $15 an hour. Not that that negates a tip, but tipping seems to have evolved and I'm not sure where I am on that evolutionary chart.

fuzzy stuff.
From today’s AP News article…

“Schenker says it’s hard to sympathize with consumers who are able to afford pricey coffee drinks but complain about tipping. And he often feels demoralized when people don’t leave behind anything extra — especially if they’re regulars.

“Tipping is about making sure the people who are performing that service for you are getting paid what they’re owed,” said Schenker, who’s been working in the service industry for roughly 18 years.”


The quote is from a barista in graduate school.
