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

Tips are fine when they are optional.

Over here in Europe, there is no pressure to tip. You give it if you received good service, that’s it. In the US, tipping is mandatory no matter what based on a bizarre social stigma, which like you said is very stupid.

They should just be paid properly for doing their job instead of relying on tips to survive.

FYI, I get taxed and have to tip out on my total sales, including take out meals. Just so you’re aware, not tipping on take outs is still screwing your server.

They don’t care because they are sticking it to the system, which makes them feel good.
