I’m not cheap! But one thing I really can’t stand right now is the tip line when you go to a fast food type place! A lot of the places I frequent now I use a credit card, there is often a line for the tip! At a fast food place or drive-thru!! I feel really bad (not bad enough not to do it!) putting my dash or zero in that line. Take out or drive-thru is a service but it does not warrant a tip. What happenned to wages and salaries? This practice is keeping me out of a lot of places but sometimes it is unavoidable.
It is beyond annoying and awkward to put the customer, who should be valued, in the position of looking cheap for frequenting your business. Sometmes I do put in a little something but it is TOTALLY under obligation! Tips for fast food should be only for a customer that comes in so often that the employees do something special for them. That is not the case most places I go, I understand these people just want to make a living, and I commend and support them, heck, I may even join their ranks, but I do not agree with this practice!
