I went to Subway to get a sandwich for lunch, and they had a tip cup out by the register. Am I wrong for getting upset at fast food chains for posting tip cups? Is it out of line to think that a place that charges me $6+ for a sub with 5 slices of turkey shouldn't expect me to subsidize their labor? I think, and we may have touched on this before in here, that Dunkin Donuts is the biggest villain when it comes to this. $2+ for a coffee and then you expect patrons to pay your help too? I know, I know, you're not obligated to leave any money, but if you frequent a particular establishment regularly, you almost feel compelled to. I leave a tip a lot more often than not, but I hate that crap. I don't want to sound insensetive, as I used to bus, and wait tables in the North End, and thus appreciate people who depend on tips for a living. The thing is, in a restaurant you're being served, whereas in a fast food joint, your being serviced. What's next, a tip cup for accepting someone's rent, or for the lady working the register at Home Depot? Maybe I should include a tip with my Keyspan payment for the person who has to process it. I know, a tip for the parking clerk who writes me a citation. At any rate, I wanted to vent a little, and see if it was just me who felt this way.
