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

The US tipping culture is toxic as hell. Shaming people for eating out on a budget because an entire industry has convinced workers it's OK to be paid next to nothing? Ridiculous. People deserve living wages with tips viewed as an added gratuity or bonus for good service.

yea these blokes are wack out of their minds. "if you can't afford to tip, then stay at home" wtf... restaurant is a business there is a price, i pay the price, i get the thing. there is no random free money that i have to give to the person that's supposed to serve me. or else why am i paying like 4x the price for food????

In AMERICA we have a societal agreement that you tip when you eat out and get service..eating out is not a right, it’s a luxury. Im sorry it’s so hard for y’all to understand. Waiters make good money for the most part, more than what you”blokes” are advocating more. The service isn’t included in the food..if it was you’d be complaining about american food prices. Please stop acting high and mighty because you can’t wrap your head around it..

So poor people can never have a treat?

Not on the backs of others…dude could have taken a little more time to save up for a tip as well. Poor people don’t spend $70 at dinner tho…thats just a lie to be a cheap asshole.
