This thing is still going?
Okay I think everybody is still missing something, if employers actually paid their employees a decent wage tipping would never have existed in todays world. To Insure Promptness... that "was" what a tip was for. Today tipping is are part of an employees pre-calculated wage
... see the difference? Nobody is saying people don't deserve, but employers "count on" our generosity towards their employees and Now the employers are taking up to half the tip for themselves! Its the mentality of it and people just follow along, why not just keep a jar of vaseline handy, drop your shorts and bend over as soon as you walk into any business from now on...
Putting something in someone's food? Mightn't that be considered a form of terrorism? I think it would show how impaired and disgusting a person actually is if not criminal doing something to food, I suppose a person found doing that might even have put their own life in danger, depending on who they did it to? Its terrible that people even think it happens so it too must be acceptable in todays society also?
