I can't take it anymore! Why does everyone expect a tip
for performing services that are part of their job?
You are always expected to:
tip the waitress for bringing your
tip the valet for bringing your car
tip the barber for cutting your hair
(even when he OWNS the shop)
tip the driver for delivering your
Ok where in any of these descriptions are people going
out of their way for you? These are the main functions of
their jobs, why should I have to tip them for doing it?
"Here's some money, thanks for actually performing
your job." This has got to end.
There are some cultures where tipping is not accepted. In
Tahiti, hospitality is part of their culture and you do
not tip. It is considered rude to try. Well, yay!!! I
need to move there (for other selfish reasons as well,
but I digress).
If we are going to tip, we need to tip everyone. Next
time my boss stops by my desk and asks for that report by
noon, shouldn't he leave $5 on my desk?
