Tips are for people who deserve them

Posted on Mon, Nov 15, 2010 at 1:00 PM

I'm sick and tired of the new debit machines at some fast food restaurants, which send me directly to a tip screen where you actually have to press a button to skip giving a tip. It's a little presumptuous to think they deserve a tip for passing food over a counter. Tipping should not be expected, it is for a server who does a good job serving you. Things like correct ordering, making sure your glass is never empty, an easy-going and polite disposition, and maybe even a little witty banter. These are some of the reasons why people get tips, not just showing up to work and ringing things through on a cash register. If you want tips, go get a job where you deserve one. —Sick of tipping for everything
