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 worked grocery and we weren't allowed to accept tips. An old lady knew that and dragged me to the back of the store to shake my hand and pass off a folded $5 bill like we were breaking the law or something.

I had an old guy do that to me when I used to work at circuit City as a tech. He brought his laptop in on 2 separate occasions to have it worked on and I couldn't in good conscious intake it because there wasn't an actual problem to fix, he just didn't know what to do(like it took me less than 30 seconds each time to get him rolling again). The second time he took me out the parking lot and gave me something.
