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.

How do you know? For all you know they go out once a month to eat and had 100$ for fuel and a family meal. The cost of living is skyrocketing and people are struggling to afford basic necessities - how about we stop judging others for being low income?

Actually OP said it was 4 teenagers that reeked of weed lmao

Chances are they’re not “broke” but just trying to save money for smoking weed all day and jerking off

So we're shaming them for being teenagers who smoke weed now. K.

It should be looked down upon tbh. There’s really nothing that good about weed and the exact same thing can be said for drinking and smoking

There's plenty of reasons people use weed - and it has some pretty fantastic medicinal qualities. Drinking is useless in my opinion, but I'm not shaming people for drinking.

Please tell me the plenty of reasons

It's not my job to educate you.

That sounds more like “I can’t think of anything because there isn’t anything beneficial so I’m going to ask you to educate yourself”
