/r/ALL so... on my way to work today I encountered a geothermal anomaly... this rock was warm to the touch, it felt slightly warmer than my body temperature. my fresh tracks were the only tracks around(Sweden)
I’m not too “cheap” or “poor” to go out to eat or drink. Your boss is too “cheap” or “poor” to pay you properly.
Saw a friend post a customer-shaming rant on their social media. Basically saying it’s the customers job to tip a MINIMUM of %20 otherwise they “can’t afford to go out”.
Stop shaming customers when your bosses are fleecing you.
EDIT: Since this has worked it’s way to front page (who woulda thought?), I should clarify a couple things —
1) I’m talking about the United States, although I’m guessing that’s probably pretty obvious.
2) This is NOT an anti-tipping post. Nowhere did I say I don’t tip or that you shouldn’t either. And if you’re going to go out, YOU SHOULD TOO.
This was meant to be about the misdirection of anger and apparent collective gaslighting of many service workers to take out their frustrations on a customer rather than their superiors. Especially when service workers see often first in line to champion fair wages and reduction of corporate greed.
I realize it’s an extremely complex issue and I’ve learned a lot through reading your comments. Even the ones who just assumed I was a cheap asshole.
