    I hate the fact that every shitty waiter/waitress thinks they are entitled to a tip for doing nothing other than taking the order, bringing out the food, and asking if it tastes okay. Some servers go above and beyond and i tip 20%. Most places though I just tip because I feel I have to. The entitlement is actually pathetic.

    Just the other day though, I ordered Famoso through skip the dishes to the hospital cause we were there all day and i forgot to pack the lunches and of course they ask tip option. I picked 10% because it was the lowest and i thought F that, i'm already paying 4 bucks to have it delivered. But then half hour later this asian kid came and met me in the lobby, obviously just driving while he's going to university, even in -30 the pizzas were still warm. Realizing that i used to be sort of in those shoes - going to school and trying to earn a little cash on the side here and there, and also that he was genuinely nice and didn't expect anything extra, i grabbed the only bill from my pocket which was 10 bucks and gave it to him. 10 bucks isn't much but he definitely really appreciated it
    But the big difference between a right winger writing for a right wing media source, and left winger writing for a left wing source. Is that everything he wrote here is true and factual, not just somebodies opinion piece that is spinning vague facts to try and support their poorly thought out opinion.

    I remember going to Booster Juice and they had a tip option. Sorry but I am not tipping you for making a smoothie.

    I tip at restaurants, never at take out or food counters, but ALWAYS when there is a waiter or waitress. Their base wage is of no concern to me what so ever
    You see when you have an operational engine, it turns the wheels giving you the ability to run into shit. If your car ever had one of those you'd understand what I'm getting at.

    In regards to skipthedishes - man, they need a POST-delivery tip.

    Email me, ask me how it was, what kind of tip is deserved? I don't understand giving them a tip before anything was literally even done.

    I didn't realize the minimum wage had escalated so quickly, and will be at $15/h this year in the fall.

    I now will not be tipping unless the service is good. Good service will get a 10% tip. Great service 20% (I've had GREAT service about 5 times in my life).

    Before, I without question tipped 10-15% regularly. Not anymore!

    Like $7-$8 per hour. Something around there.

    Edit: Just looked it up.

    1998-2004: $5.50/hour (when I entered the working class)
    2005-2006: $7/hour
    2007-2010: $8/hour
    2011-2014: $9/hour

    Then, the new government came in, and they said by 2018, it would be increased to $15/hour.

    So it's gone up like $1.50-$2 per year for the past 3 years in a row.
