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

Idk much because I'm from the UK, but is this really a massive issue for someone who's already broke but wanted to treat themselves? I feel like the anger should be directed at tipping culture and the companies that underpay their workers rather than the consumers who are just currently using the system as intended?

Just feels weird to be mad at someone who's broke for not paying more than the worth of their meal, y'know?

EDIT: For the people saying "Fuck the customer, they're basically stealing from the server and making them do unpaid labour!"

They're not the ones stealing from the server, the companies are. It should be the company compensating the labour of the workers, not the customers.

As a fellow Brit I agree.

This subreddit never fails to shock me when they always continuously get mad at the customer, rather than the employer. It defeats the whole purpose of the subreddit.

I genuinely think they all secretly deep down want the tipping culture to stay because it more or less benefits everyone bar the customer.

Not that secretly and not that deep down either, if they didn't like the system they would have changed it already, but most of them are making way more than they would but getting a normal hourly wage.

why are you even on this subreddit?

Because this bullshit right here is not what this subreddit is about.

“if you don’t like this about society why do you even participate in said society?”

I don't, I live in a civilized country where people are paid a decent wage.
