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

This week I bought a couple of t-shirts online and after I approved the purchase it sent me to another screen where it asked me if I would like to leave a $3 tip. The world gone mad with asking for tips for just about anything now.

The only time I got asked for a tip online after making a purchase (so far) was when I made a purchase from a small niche company that made products for an undeserved community. I did tip bc I'm greatful for their company and the work they do. But a t-shirt? Gtfoh.

WhAat!? That’s obscene. Who would you be tipping? The fucking algorithm?

I hope you said no

I did indeed. I was seriously shocked by it. I had to ask a couple people if they had experienced it before and no one seemed to have seen it before. Sign of the times? i sure hope not.

Let’s hope not - I certainly won’t be tipping after buying a shirt though…
