Why Tipping Is So Out Of Control In The U.S.

Tipping in the United States is on the rise and experts are calling it tipflation. In the fourth quarter of 2022, the number of tips provided at full-service restaurants grew by 17% from the fourth quarter of 2021. Meanwhile the tip frequency at quick-service restaurants rose 16% during the same time period. Experts say that's because of the newer and sleeker-looking Point-of-Sale, or POS, systems by tech companies like Square, Toast and Clover, who also have increased their sales as a result. The pressure to tip well in front of the tip receiver, before a service is completed, or in front of other customers makes a difference for many. After customers swipe their credit card, they're typically prompted with three large tipping options on a screen. While businesses can opt out of the tipping feature, most aren't. In fact, even Starbucks started prompting customers for tips in stores in September 2022. With Americans being pressured to tip higher percentages and for more services, the question is, where is the tipping point?

I think we should be like other countries, get rid of tips, pay employees how much they should be paid, and price the food accordingly

I started to catch myself feeling kind of guilty for not tipping for everything everywhere but decided to ignore that guilt. I stick to tipping at restaurants & occasionally at the subway I frequent for the teenagers & of course any deliveries I might get but that’s enough, I’m not getting paid enough to cover other peoples salaries in this economy, we’re all just trying to make it out here.

Tipping only for delivery and dine in service is a good approach!
SarahWITHanH 7 giorni fa
This is my approach, if I tipped for the service 5 years ago, I still tip. But I can’t believe how many places are asking for tips now, like Crumbl Cookies. This is a bakery and you put 4 cookies that were already made in a box for me, I shouldn’t be asked to provide wages.

When I was working at a restaurant, it was part of our training (and mandatory) that we shove the tip tablet in a customer's face and ask, so whenever you see it, know that the employee is probably just as uncomfortable as you are. Don't hesitate to tap no; it's not the customer's duty to fill in for a greedy company's meager wages. They've taken what was once a small, thoughtful gesture and turned it into a business scheme. Disgusting.

The amount you tip used to be based on the level of service that is provided. People who went out of their way to provide excellent services were tipped more (not always because of cheap people, but that is how it worked). For some reason tipping has become an extra added tax rather than a reward for providing good service. Tips are now expected for services where there is absolutely no extra effort put into the service.
George Christou

The idea to give tip to someone for providing a good service is just wrong. It feels like disrespecting the person being tipped as if here's 3 dollars you poor servant, go buy an ice cream or something lol. And its stressful for the customers being forced to tip and not knowing the correct amount. Tipped staff exempt from minimum wage, what a horrible and disgusting idea.
captglenn100 8 giorni fa
@George Christou I do not know who is deciding servers should only receive minimum wage if they obtain tips, this is wrong. Perhaps before accepting employment from those businesses, the applicant should ask that question. Personally, I think tipping should not be expected. But here in the United States it is an accepted practice. Customers are not forced to provide a tip, just expect that if you return or use that service again you will not receive excellent service, and perhaps if you have the same person, poor service or refusal of service. There is a base tip percent for those who do their job, then if you feel that the person did extra work you add to that. This is how incentives work, if you are tipped the same no matter how little you perform your task or how hard you do it, why would anyone work harder than the next person.
George Christou
George Christou 8 giorni fa
@captglenn100 there should be a standard of performance below of which they get fired. It should be that either the service is good enough or not. There is no reason for "excellent" service. Either good service and continue working, or bad service and get fired.
captglenn100 8 giorni fa
@George Christou Perhaps, but this is how capitalism works, you put in the extra work and you are rewarded. I am sure it has been tried here.
George Christou
George Christou 8 giorni fa
@captglenn100 that works for different companies though, not for different staff working in the same company. Capitalism is about rewarding the company that produces your selected goods. But tipping, is about optional reward to an individual for going "over and above" of what they have to do. So ,no I don't see any similarities between capitalism and tipping.

I remember one time I went to a bar at a music venue and ordered two beers for myself and my uncle. The bartender reached into the fridge, opened two tall cans and handed them to me. Then when he passed me the card reader, it gave tip options of 18%, 20%, and 25%. I skipped the tip option and payed the already ridiculous price for two beers. When I handed the card reader back, the bartender gave me a disgusted look when he saw I didn’t tip. I just couldn’t believe that he genuinely thought I would tip him 18% for just reaching into a fridge and opening two beers. Modern-day tipping culture is terrible and it’s crazy how society is expected to tip large amounts for the most basic services.

bartending and waiting tables is a little different. in most cases they get paid less wages due to the expectation they get tips. not sure where it lies now but up until recently most establisments in GA pay their servers and bartenders something like 2 dollars and change an hour.

Your best option if you are unfamiliar with the markets is to seek advice or help from a consultant or investing coach.

_IF_ the server did a good job, they would get better tips. I spent *YEARS* in the food-service industry. I've seen the most lazy, nasty servers make huuuuge bucks because customers were shamed into tipping. That needs to change! We need to bring back stiffing for servers who are not prompt, servers who are not courteous and servers who deliver bad food.

You're bothered that people raised in a particular culture expect that culture? Those servers were born and raised in a society that considers those jobs that receive tips. Of course they expect that, they've been seeing it their entire lives. Even before they ever had a job at a restaurant they saw servers getting tips. It's what they were taught to expect. What bothers ME is all the selfish jerks who want to blame the servers for adapting to the culture they were raised in. Somehow at least 156 other people are self centered enough that they can't empathize with another person. It's always a shame to see people get self righteous while also being completely self centered and oblivious to the problem.

Tipping has gotten INSANE in the past couple years. At checkout they usually TURN the screen around at you and say “it’s gonna ask you a couple questions.” They want it at the ice cream place, boba place, Starbucks, for writing on a cake, EVERYWHERE. The girl at Starbucks rolled her eyes at me for not tipping for a small drink!

I tend to avoid any take out or coffee shop which asks for a tip whenever possible. Almost as annoying as this new tipping scam are those incessant requests for donations for some obscure charity or USO at the grocery store. Recently, at a Giant, I was asked three times for a donation for the same charity. Once while on the floor shopping, once while waiting to check out, and then on the screen at the self-checkout.

As a young mechanic at 25 years old, I’ve never expected a tip in my industry, I’ve been told never to expect a tip in the industry, does it happen sometimes, yes and obviously I’m very appreciative of it, but when you tip the person who is selling you the service it goes to that person not the mechanic working on your car, even if you ask them to pass it along they won’t half of the time.

People love to tell everyone if you can't afford to tip you should stay home. They say you shouldn't be going out and having a good time if you can't afford to tip. I think the same should hold true for the businesses, if they can't afford to pay employee's the bare minimum wage and still be profitable then they SHOULD close up shop.

If they cannot pay their workers properly should not have started the business.They want to guilt trip all the customers into thinking they are doing injustice to the workers if they pay anything less than 20%. Tip is supposed to be paid only if you like the service,a small amount of 5-10% as gratitude.

The new problem with tipping is that it is built into the point-of-sale terminal software. So anybody using a point-of-sale device can set it up for tipping, even businesses that have never had tipping previously. Typically you can opt out of tipping but it is there by default.

Sometimes tipping doesn't help, they may still forget your order. It's terrible to have to pay a mandatory service charge and still be expected to tip. Sometimes with the delivery fee and tip (expected after all those horror stories on social media on what happens if you don't tip), your food order is now 40-50% more than the original price. Sometimes there's an automatic gratuity at the restaurant and the point of service still has a separate suggestion line for a tip where you might end up tipping twice if you don't look carefully.

They main opponent to any legislation that appears to do away with tipping is not actually tipped employees. If you hear ads on tv or radio, usually with the slogan "Save Our Tips," they are always funded by restaurant owner associations. The current system allows them to pocket the revenue from the sale, while the customer pays the employee's wages. Changing that would eat into their profits (oh, sorry for the pun).

I agree, it’s ridiculous and out of control. The worst thing is that Americans travel to other countries where tipping is not expected yet they tip anyway and are now habituating the locals to expect tips from foreigners. I was in a country which I won’t name; their restaurant workers are paid a full wage with benefits. I was with a friend of mine and he suggested I tip the server. I asked the cashier about it and was told it was not necessary and not expected. He confirmed the servers were paid a full wage with benefits and did not expect tips. My friend guilted me into tipping anyway. Tipping used to be a sign the customer appreciated a service that went above and beyond what is expected. Nowadays it is there, as a matter of fact, systematically, to supplement the worker’s meager salary that the employer can’t afford or doesn’t want to pay his or her employees. We are all subsidizing business owners for their lack of ethics and accountability towards their employees. In some cases, business owners cannot afford to pay their employees more, I get it, and at some point we need to take a hard look at our priorities as a capitalistic society and treat employees with more dignity. I understand this is not as simple as it sounds but other countries manage, so we should too.

Sunday, I tipped a woman taking my order and prepping my food 30% because she rolled with my jokes, made sure my order was right, and made sure I was aware of allergens and personally handed me my food. Her attitude was awesome. My tip was all the cash I had and she was surpised, saying, "I havent had a tip in a while. Thank you." Same afternoon, I was at a grocery store doing self check out, "How much do you want to tip (person's name) for service?" That person didn't help me. I clicked "0%" and the light went red, screen locked up and said, "Please wait for a cashier for assistance." They didn't show up for a few minutes and said, "What's the issue? Why no tip?"

I tip everywhere I go, because I want the person keep showing up to work. Don't tip and just get everything from Amazon and don't tip your driver, I guess. Tippers makes the universe turn. Everyone should thank tippers because non tippers are receiving some of the benefits of those tips. Your more likely to get good service or at least a quality worker that just might be doing the job of 2 people due to tips. If you constantly get horrible service, maybe it's easy to see you're a non tipper or you just miserable or maybe just funny looking and they don't want your money anyways, but they provide services in hopes of getting you out of there quickly, so they can get a tipper next. Non tippers lack compassion and generally are bare minimum kind of people, with empty lives and no REAL friends. Who doesn't tip? Wow, no friend of mine, that's for sure.

You're right that tipping should be a personal choice and the amount you tip should be relative to your own budget. The problem is that these people aren't paid enough so they rely on tipping to get the paycheck. So the employer is basically making YOU the customer pay their employees on top of whatever products you get from them.

@Nick Wrightsel It’s important to remember, if you are tipped before the service is provided, you feel entitled and think “I got the tip” and you may still take your time. So it’s not about getting tips first or last, it’s about the entitlement. And why did you work in a tip based job, if you don’t trust you will get the tip? Pick a higher hourly or yearly job where it’s flat. Instead of tips, you get bonuses and raises, and promotions - and just like tips, they are based on performance.

Several decades ago I remember going to a little restaurant close to my house. There was no wait staff, and as all the tables were cluttered with previous meals, I had to clean one myself. I also had to request a menu, walk to the service window to order my meal and carry it back to the table I had just cleaned. And of course, they wanted a tip. Excuse me? They were out of business in a few months. Can't even remember what the food was like.

The tipping culture in America is really getting insane and out of control. I don't mind giving a 20% tip to my server if they do a good job. But recently I've had experiences where I'm going through a drive-through and when they give me the tablet to pay for my order, it's asking me if I want to leave a 10%, 20%, or 25% tip. This is complete insanity; I'm not giving a tip when I'm getting my food through a drive-thru! I also recently had a number of experiences at different takeout places where the machine would ask me how much tip I wanted to leave when I am picking up and paying for my takeout order. This is completely crazy, in my opinion. I placed my takeout order online, and I'm just driving up to the restaurant to pick it up, and I'm taking it home and eating it in my house. So why on earth would I tip for that when I'm already paying for the food? Also, be careful when you are tipping through those tablet machines at a restaurant, because I got scammed by them a few times. Usually, when I go to a sit-down restaurant, I give a 20% tip to my server, so when the machine asks me what percentage I want to tip, I will usually tap 20%. However, when I got home and looked at the bill they gave me, I realized that these machines are scamming us because they usually calculate the 20% tip on the amount after tax and not the pre-tax amount like they should. So from now on when I'm at a restaurant, I use the calculator on my phone to calculate what is the 20% amount before tax is, and when they bring me the tablet to pay I select that I want to enter my own amount instead of using the pre selected percentage options that they have, and I enter the 20% before taxes amount as my tip.

Here are a couple of my issues about tipping, in the video someone mentioned safety as an issue so they tip their auto mechanic, the last time I went to a dealer shop or an independent shop you never pay for service before the service completed so it’s a nonsense feeling of security because the mechanic doesn’t know if a tip is coming his or her way or not! Another thing restaurant employees have been saying things before, during and after the “pandemic” if a customer can’t afford to tip they shouldn’t be eating out so stay home and we will only allow people in that can afford to tip! Restauranteurs have a choice in this matter they can choose to cheap out and pay their Wait staff the minimum $2.15 an hour or pay their wait staff a decent salary that they can survive on. Most not all but most choose to do the former and cheap out! Now I’m hearing that management in some places are demanding that the wait staff pool their tips and everyone including the salaried employees and management get a portion of the total tip pot and this is totally unfair and ridiculous! Sometime in the past 6 months Walmart has gone from a voluntary tip set amount for their delivery service to a percentage of the entire bill which in many cases screws with the amount of my delivery person’s actual tip! I was tipping $10 prior to the change in policy now my tip is 10% of my bill because I can’t afford 15% or 20% . Even at $10 that’s $5 more than I tip a pizza delivery driver. Something else to be done soon to get this tipping thing straightened out and get it back in track or maybe just do away with it all together and have employers pay their workers a decent salary that they can live on and not cheap out! ! !

I work a retail job that often requires me to teach customers about the product or spend a lot of time helping them choose things. My boss couldn’t afford to pay us a living wage, so he put in a credit card tip function. I hate it. I feel so pushy asking for tips. I don’t mention tipping and physically turn away to grab their purchases when that screen pops up so they don’t have to do it in front of me. If they apologize for not tipping, I smile and tell them having friendly polite customers is like a tip. My coworkers tell the customers the reader will ask “how well they did their job” and then watch like a hawk while they make a choice. My coworkers therefore do make more in tips than I do. But at least I don’t feel like a jerk.

My rule of thumb is most of the time only tip if you're somewhere you're sitting down and spending a lot of time at and employees are actively giving you service and interacting with you. Recently, the Jimmy John's at my college started doing this whole trying to force a tip. I go there often so I know when they changed the credit card screen so they could include the tip screen. When I saw that screen pop up with the three tip options and a small "custom" where you literally have to type $0.00, in my head I'm like wtf am I tipping for? Y'all haven't even done anything yet and you're forcing tips on people. It's completely gone wild in this country and now people are being pressured to spend even more money than they need to and can afford.

I didn't even like having to tip at the places I was "expected" to before all this bullying for tips from everywhere became rampant recently. So when a place I go to starts asking for tips from out of nowhere for no discernable reason, I not only refuse, but also never go back.

Just got back from Europe last month and my mind was blown when I found out tipping wasn’t required or even an option!! It created a more straightforward dining experience, where the prices on the menu reflected the true cost of the meal. Unlike the US, it seems they have fair wages for service staff, reducing the reliance on tips to make ends meet.

My gf and I just discussed this after watching this videos. Full service restaurants and salons will be the only thing we tip for in a 15-20% range depending on service. If we go to a place where the employee is making minimum wage or more to perform their duty that’s because they chose that job knowing their task and accepting the pay rate.

If someone asks for a tip (as in a money tip, not a hint), it's hard to ever trust that person ever again cause what if you don't tip? the next time you buy lets say food from them, they might spit on it. It's just better to never return to the business that asked for a tip

Same thing here in Canada. The machines start at 18% (there IS a button to give less, but you type it in yourself, and RUN before the waitress notices it...). I'm a chef, my wages went up substantially since Covid, but the WAIT staff are making bank like never before now. Higher tips and DOUBLE the cost for food... It's just insane. I never go out to eat, because I already eat out every day, and I don't drink much when I party, but if I did, around 35% of my bill totals would be taxes and tips... No thanks.

I understand it completely I worked at a restaurant for a few years before getting into my career and was present when the tipping became overboard.. Had an older gentleman order take out.. small dish . Employee then got mad because he didn’t tip her half of what the meal came out which would be 15$ 😮 Guy said “ I really should not be tipping you? Let alone give you a decent tip which was 10$ “ for what? All you did was ring me up ? She got so mad and caused a scene and I was mindblown and asked her why should thought is was appropriate for him to tip so much … she said that because she makes 4/hr$ and people need to understand that and I understand to a point but even I wouldn’t tip that much … Idk I think companies need to Reevaluate the wages .. sad we live like this .. I’m sorry but if you don’t provide a service to me then I won’t tip that much… I’ll tip as a generosity move but definitely will not give you half of what my order coast .. some people can’t afford that and just like the server who is mad over the low tip ..they too have financial issues and we are all in a similar situation

I am from India, and I have seen many restaurants here which has a sign board which says "Please do not tip our staff, they are well paid " or "We do not encourage tipping for our staff". TIpping is almost non existent and servers do not even ask for it. Usually if u like to, you can ask them to keep the change but even if you don't do so, they won't look at you judgingly. I guess its upto individual people to decide what to do but it is never forced upon you.

I went to a cookie shop with my mom a few months ago, we walk in, both politely said “hello”, the cashier didn’t even respond just straight up stared at us, even while we were looking at different cookies. My mom said “are you going to speak or just stare at us?”, he eventually spoke but he didn’t really want to. When we bought our cookies he did the tip flip and we put no tip. The receipt printed, instead of handing it to us he took it and looked at it for 5 seconds and THEN handed it to us while shaking his head. These places want tips but can’t even give bare minimum customer service. It’s annoying af.

I’m currently in college and my roommate works at a small cafe. We live in a smaller southern town where base pay for serving is 2.50-5.00 an hour. Your livelihood is fully in the hands of generous and kind customers. Many businesses rely on customers to fill out worker’s wages because paying people what they are worth would literally sink so many smaller businesses. My friend worked at a Waffle House in the city and would leave some nights with $20 in after a full shift. In this economy, you can’t expect others to make up your company’s lacking wage policy. I feel terribly guilty when I can’t afford to tip because I know what it’s like to depend on this system for food, rent, etc.

Tipping has always infuriated me. When I went to New York, I was asked to tip like 15% for the bartender to literally open a bottle of beer - it's honestly wild. You breathe and they expect a tip. It's so engrained in U.S. culture that staff get annoyed when a customer doesn't tip, but doesn't get annoyed about a multi-million dollar restaurant not paying you a fair wage. It's simply just a way for companies to make more profit whilst you (the backbone of the business), rely on customers gratuity. In a realistic world, if everyone decided to not tip, companies will literally be forced to pay their staff a wage to keep their employees.

@TJ Blackmore viewpoints like this irritate me as they excuse the selfish actions of greedy corporations. Employers should be paying their employees a livable wage and if they can't do that, then they shouldn't be in business. Guilt-tripping people into tipping for unnecessary things even if the service wasn't good is NOT the direction America should keep going in. You should tip if you have the money and feel the service was exceptional, while at the same time the employee should be making a livable wage and should not rely on tips to pay the bills, that's insane.
Its especially bad when the restaurant adds a automatic gratuity charge for less than a large group, then complain you didn't tip. One place I went to added 20% automatic gratuity then had the nerve to add in "Add Additional Tip" with suggestions in the 15%+ range. So if you weren't paying attention, you would literally put in a 40% tip because you are used to paying 20% at restaurants (assuming you usually tip that much that is). BTW, they added the automatic gratuity for 2 person table AND calculated the tip based on Total not Subtotal. Edit: Its probably even higher since the automatic gratuity is included in the total, therefore the suggested "additional tip" is actually even higher.

I hate tipping. I'm Canadian but live in Europe now. It isn't required or even remotely expected here. I see it as a form a haggling which is stressful. I'd rather pay the full price up front exactly as listed on a menu and then relax and enjoy my meal. Rather then trying to do math in my head to work out what 10% of the bill is, whether the service good, average, or terrible enough to warrant an increase or decrease in percent accordingly, and trying to work out whether it should be 10% or maybe 15%, or what the guy at the next table paid. Or whether they tip more or less in this city then average. So many variables.

Since tips are a percentage, the amount they get will increase over time as the cost of the service increases.

I use to work as a bartender while I attended university and was reliant on tips. However, I feel one aspect of tipping that bothers me is the service just isn’t their. A lot of servers and app service workers want something for nothing and don’t provide exceptional service. It’s like they have all become that bimbo hot bartender who wants a $5 tip for reaching into a fridge and popping a cap off a beer. Then got made at me because as an average looking guy I made more money then her because I would just go by volume and for every lousy tipper there would be 2 more decent tippers and 1 exceptional tip. These Uber guys say they want max tip but don’t even take the time to confirm the order is right. So why would you deserve $10 when all you did was hand someone a bag of food where 7/10 times something is wrong with it like missing napkins or a food item.

As a former restaurant server I understand the engineered need for tipping some service industry workers. Specifically the ones who are expected to make the difference between their employer paid wage and at least minimum wage. I find it annoying that service industry workers who make at least minimum wage expect tips. I pay them because I'm socially shamed into paying them. But I don't think I should. I usually willingly over pay restaurant servers, both out of some sort of brotherhood style compassion (I've been there) and I don't expect that all of their customers will tip enough (again, I've been there). But, I have trouble justifying why I should need to tip others in the service industry, but I don't know how much wage they earn from their employer. I don't get a tip from the customers of my company. The kitchen staff at restaurants don't get tips for their efforts. Why are servers expected to "make up" their total wage from tips on top of the pitiful wage that they earn from their employers. (Often so little that if they don't get tables it isn't worth their time to sit there and do side work while waiting for people to come in the door.)

The only reason it is added to the bill is to make sure people do tip. The key word in all this is gratuity. I don't agree with an added mandatory tip on your bill. It should be based on the service and experience you receive. I myself have had great food and service and also not so great. If I leave with a smile and something to tell my friends about I feel much better leaving a smile on my server as well.There wage never enters my mind but there service and kindness always brings me back.There is a lot more to this than just opinion. Learn all sides of tipping people before making judgment. Can anyone explain the Allocated tips on there W-2 form? Appreciate your server and tip what you want. Say No To Mandatory Tipping. I love my servers and wish everyone seriously a great day. It's Gratuity regardless of their wage. Say no to mandatory tipping.
