I bought prepared sushi today from the mall food court, literally selected it out of the self serve fridge and handed it to the cashier. She gave me napkins and chopsticks that’s it, the terminal asked me for a tip, uh fuck no. And I always tip 20% but that’s a line too far.

If you want a sign that tipping culture has reached peak ridiculousness...

To-go orders want tips. Drive thrus want tips. Cashier stands want tips.

But keep in mind that is put in place by EMPLOYERS who will most likely pocket that money. It is rich employers getting richer.

To go orders should get tips. A lot of the time people making your to-go orders in a restaurant are making $2 an hour. The maximum wage I've heard of for a to-go person is $4.50. they place your order they put everything together and make sure everything is right and they bring it to you at your car. And even if they're not bringing it to your car, they still deserve some kind of tip for doing all that for you. That's how they survive.

Point made.

I live in California so those types of workers make at least minimum wage. My view was myopic and lacking context.
