So sorry, I'm broke so I can only pay you $77 for my food. You were great though.

You need to re-read what I wrote and leave your anger at the door. They WANT us to fight amongst ourselves. They are counting on it, because that ensures they won't be held accountable. Stop shaming customers and start shaming corporations. How quickly would tipping culture change if masses of people walked off the job and masses of people refused to eat out during the strike? There's more of us then there are of them.

I don't know why you asked me to read this as if this somehow excuses screwing over your waiter. Again, tipping WOULD change if people walked off the job. But you've got to have a savior complex if you think that you're somehow "helping" the staff by making it harder for them to not pay rent. Not tipping your worker only hurts them, not the business itself. The bosses don't give a shit if someone decides not to tip, but the waiter definitely will feel its impact

I called you out for your "don't eat out if you don't tip' remark and you got big mad about it. You wanna point fingers at people in lower income brackets instead of multimillion dollar corporations, that's fine. That's your prerogative. It sure as hell isn't mine. Your tipping culture is completely disgusting and literally only exists because of corporate conditioning in your society. Don't just leave wait staff dangling in the abyss - help them challenge and change things!
