I'm all for tipping and as a person who worked in numerous service jobs and several that where I made less than minimum wage (server, waitress) I know how important it is to tip. But where do you draw the line? I've been into several places such as pizza restaurants and Starbucks that have tip jars out on the counters and I'm wondering how many people think it's rude if you don't tip. Of course I tip if I have pizza delivered because the drivers have to actually come to my house to give it to me and the same goes for any delivery, but when I'm picking up and pizza or something else and it's on the counter in front of me I feel like they're asking for tips is a bit much. I'm already paying for the pizza, it's not like I'm having them bringing it to me as well. With Starbucks, the issue is a little different. I've been told that they make either minimum wage or more, so I don't feel necessarily like I should tip them. I could understand if they were making less, but if I tip them, then shouldn't I tip pretty much everyone I see like grocery store cashiers and the like. Just
to be clear I'm not comparing Starbucks Baristas to grocery store
cashiers in the type of jobs they do. I'm comparing them in the fact
that they both have very little interatction time. I'm using a service
from these people for maybe three to five minutes at a time. Where as at a sit down restaurant that has servers/waitresses or say a hair salon I'm there for a an hour or more so I do tip.
If anyone has anything thing they'd like to add whether to agree or disagree with me thats great! Though if you disagree please don't call me a b**** or anything like that just tell me why. I"m all for someone who can change my opinion if it's a clear thought out opinion and not one that just has curse words or negative things directed at me.
