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

It’s not generosity, they literally served you with the understanding that you would pay them based on how good their service was. Maybe get off that broke mindset and stop complaining about having to pay people for their work.

No, they literally served you because it’s their job. Like how a Walmart attendant serves you, or a Home Depot cashier. It’s the job. The employee should get paid a fair wage by the owner. It’s not a broke mentality, it’s a normal mentality for anywhere this brainwashing US tipping culture hasn’t infested.

Go eat food in Spain, or Australia, or Japan, or wherever the fuck else and you pay what it says on the bill. If the employee goes above and beyond, as in something special, then tip away. If they do their job, pay for the food and go on your way.

If you’re seriously of the mindset that workers should be paying other workers wages, you’re on completely the wrong subreddit.

They sound irrationally angry enough to be.
