I just don’t understand why you give 10% because someone is doing the job they are paid for.
Makes no sense to me.
ABSOLUTELY!!! I despise 'compulsory' tipping in all of it's forms.Before anyone slams me, I worked in a bar for five years. Tips were very
infrequent. I maybe got around £10 every two months. Didn't affect the service I gave, and nor should it. If somebody tips you, huzzah! It's a nice
little bonus to maybe get a bite after you finish, or a drink next time you go out. If someone doesn't tip you, no big deal. You're still being paid
by the hour so what difference does it make?
I think establishments have absolutely ZERO right to tack a tip on the bottom of bills. Tips are given at the customer's discretion. If someone
doesn't want to tip, they don't have to. If, however, they return and the person who serves them provides a less than stellar service, then the
employee is in the wrong. That was always my philosophy on the matter.
I stand by the pastor's refusal to tip completely. Maybe the service was terrible, maybe the food wasn't great, or maybe she just didn't want to
give someone money to congratulate them for doing the job they're being paid to do.
