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

That's actually on the opposite end of the fucking issue. If they are getting paid a full salary, why the fuck am I tipping?? Include a gratuity in the purchase price of each drink do it however you want but for fucks sake I'm so tired of having to do napkin math based on my experience while also contemplating every conceivable life scenario of the staff that just helped me while drunk.

Bars are fucking overrated in general anyways these days.

You’ve completely missed the point. If they are making a full living wage, you never have to tip. Nobody will expect you to. However, if you want to reward someone for outstanding service, there is nothing explicitly forbidding you from doing so.
