To tip or not to tip?
After reading this story on Bellasugar, http://www.bellasugar.com/Tipping-Salons-Spas-8076787 I got to thinking. It seems like almost everywhere you go, clerks have tip cups out and expect you to contribute. I am more than happy to tip a waitress or a hair stylist the standard 20% but the guy that Quiznos who made my sandwich?
My stepmother says she always tips the drive through coffee clerks. Always. My coworker says she has an issue with tipping some one to hand her food. I can understand both points of view. On one hand, working at Dunkin Donuts probably bites the big one so anything that might brighten their day or encourage them to be nice to customers is probably a good thing. On the other hand, they aren't waitresses. Tips don't make up a huge percentage of their income. They do get paid a fair hourly wage already, so do they really need to be tipped on top of that?
How do you guys feel about this? Do you tip anybody who hands you food or are you more discriminatory with your gratuities?
