I’m with you! It drives me crazy how everything is marked up and then people expect a tip on top of that! We will be doing minimal tipping as everything we’re being charged well above minium wage. I’ve figured out the math and per hour, a lot of these people are making way more than me!

I do!  The five figure cost for my dinner is painful enough, but 20% tip is throwing salt on the wound!

Not to complain or anything… but do they work “normal” hours too? Or just on weekends, or part-time? Vendors don’t work an 8 hour shift Monday to Fridays… It may be more per hour, but less per month than you earn….

I’m with you on this one! Obviously all my vendors were tipped the appropriate amount but it does irk me.

I don’t mind the tipping if it is based purely on excellent service. What I HATE is that tipping is expected and almost demanded regardless of how good or bad the services actually are.

As a consumer/customer it is my choice and my right to decide how much and if I tip at all. It is not your right as a vendor/contracted individual to recieve one. If more companies remembered this I think we would all be in a much better place.

@happyface:  I wouldn’t assume it’s a full time 40 hour/week job, but still the hourly amount is quite high-is it everyones responsibility to ensure they make enough to live on just by working maybe 12 hours/week vs. 40? And what about the people who work at McDonald’s-I’m sure they make far less (my friends in HS only made minimum wage)-do you tip them extra as they make less and surely don’t work there full time?
