This morning I was listening to a local radio show, Chris & Mel in the morning…funny people. I flip radio stations because I am a music lover with ADD, once the song is over or even once I’m bored with it, I’m on to the next station unless I’m interested in the conversation. Which I’m not usually.
Today though, they struck a nerve with me. I am really getting tired of seeing tip cups in certain places. If you make minimum wage, and I’m not talking about waitress minimum wage, but if you make over $5.00 – 6.00 an hour, I’m probably not going to tip you unless you’re bringing food to my door. Yes, I tip the pizza person, nicely too. And waitstaff, very nicely.
I’ll drop a $5 tip on a $12 tab if it’s just me and I didn’t have to ask for anything, that’s service I don’t even get at home. Yep, I’ll pay for it.
On the radio they were discussing tipping for maid service in hotels. I think that when you sign all your crap for your room, they should make mention of the maid service and how they’re paid, if it’s up to you to make they’re living for them they should let you know that.
A lady called in and she and Chris agreed that you choose your job. This is where I totally had a moment and wanted to call in, but I have this so it’s better. 😈
I totally think you choose your job and you can make your life better and move up the ladder. Trust me, I used to work in a gas station after high school. I’ve worked my way into the medical field and now into the legal field, it is possible you just can’t be an idiot.
I’ve seen tip cups at A&W where all they do is grab your food off of a line and stick it in a bag. Come on!
What do you think about all this, is tipping going too far?
