“What is with everyone thinking that they deserve a tip now?” he asks before explaining that when he called a local pizza place to place an order for pickup, they told him to order it online. After placing the order, upon checkout he was prompted to leave a 20% tip. “For what?” he exclaims.
He continues, “What did you do? Like 20% is when people like come to your table, and they wait on you, and they pick things up, and they bring you things. Like what 20%? What’d you do? Directed me to your website?”
“It’s crazy,” he said shaking his head. Commenters shared their opinions on tipping at drive-thrus and take-out orders.
Many commenters agreed saying, “Tipping has gotten out of hand.” From drive-thrus to liquor stores, others shared their own experiences of being asked to tip at places where they believe shouldn’t even be asked.
One viewer said, “Went to Peet’s drive-thru the other day. They took my card and swiped it. Then they stick this giant screen out the drive-thru window asking for a tip.”
Another said, “The liquor store close to me has a tip jar. Do you want me to tip you for taking my money? Fat chance.”
