meanmutton: The Thoroughbred of Sin: robohobo: AverageAmericanGuy: gerbilpox: AverageAmericanGuy: I'll help with Take a Penny, Leave a Penny, but I'll be goddamned if I tip some cashier for pouring me a cup of coffee.You want yours without spit, don't you?So my choice is either to give in to the extortion or suffer the consequences?I think I'd rather take my business elsewhere.Extortion is exactly what is is. Protection money at it's finest, because they can't be assed to get a real job. This whole tipping culture is farking ridiculous. If you rely on tips to live, you need a new job. This is why automation is a good thing, eventually they'll be replaced by smart robots, able to take everyones silly custom orders, and employees will be cut down to the guy who performs maintenance.I tip just so the hard working kid behind the counter realizes not everyone is like you. Got to give them hope for humanity. Seriously those people take way to much sh*t in the course of a day.It's a movie.
People_are_Idiots: you realize when you put the tip in a jar they have no way of knowing at the end of the shift what tips go to which personIf it's a jar, that falls under bar tipping. Bartenders and DJs put out jars to offer a tip, and the money IS spread out. The article did not mention this so it's safer to assume that Starbucks operates like a restaurant, which common practice is leaving a tip on the table with the check, or handing it to the server when you pay.
Alphakronik: I'll tip $1 to every barista who gets my name correct, which means I don't tip very often.
mike_d85: WHY ARE THERE TIP JARS AT SELF SERVE FROZEN YOGURT SHOPS?!?/I, for one, am appalled by this behavior.
HotWingAgenda: That makes sense. But the people rolling up and ordering a $20 fru fru girly drink that takes 5 minutes to make had better farking tip for the extra work and focus involved.
robohobo: This is why automation is a good thing, eventually they'll be replaced by smart robots, able to take everyones silly custom orders, and employees will be cut down to the guy who performs maintenance.
Bucky Katt: Gig103: I'll get the ball rolling here. Baristas already make minimum wage, so why are we tipping them?You don't have to. No one is making you.
cyberspacedout: I don't get it - didn't they already do this? IIRC there was an unsuccessful class action suit a number of years ago claiming that shift supervisors shouldn't have been allowed to take tips from employees, since they were considered agents of the management or something. Maybe it was just a California thing for all I know.
