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

The table didn't stiff anyone.. the boss did. When a customer regardless of age comes in and pays for service they have already paid towards wage.. tipping is making the customer pay twice, the onus is on the establishment to not "stiff"

Except that’s not how it works. The customer is quite literally stiffing the server. You can argue whether or not the tipping system should be used or not, but in the current system the customer is still stiffing the server because that’s where they make their money. Whether or not tipping sucks, it’s still screwing over the servers
