Tipping should be everywhere! Surgeon operated early, tip! Politician passed that law you wanted, bonus! Teacher gave your child an A, have a little cash.

Tips are called bribes in any area of employment where the employees are not horrifically mistreated and underpaid. They have no place in a civilized culture.

I had a friend who worked the register there for maybe like 3 months. One day, he decided it was his last day and decided to only scan like, maybe 1 out of every 5 items? Ended up giving away a bunch of free shit to random strangers and getting fired by the end of the day. They were PISSED.

It's also theft. If they didn't call the cops, he got off lucky.

He did it in a way where he kept telling them it wasn't on purpose idk all the details. I haven't talked to him for clpse to a decade. Heroin kinda got a hold on him way back and he hasn't been around since.
