    Went to lunch last week at this place, burger and fry was $10, it was good....decided to go to the same place for dinner and same burger and fry was $16 because it was the dinner menu. Now I should tip more because the same dinner was more expensive?

    The art of tipping is frustrating, we also went to the Disney on ice last month with the kids, fuck tipping more because of the their supper inflated prices.....prices were outta control even for Disney’s standards.

    My best tipping, on a percentage basis, is at the shitty coney islands where I get two coneys and fries for like $6. They bring it to me in 5 minutes and they get the entire table’s order right without writing anything down. I could get away with leaving a $1 tip if I wanted to but why do they deserve less than any other waiter who serves me. I leave at least $5 for them.

    You’re tipping on service and not the price of the meal...that’s how it should be done IMO. Like with my lunch I left $6, service was awesome....but dinner I only left $4...he was awful.

    How is this even a question sir. Of course you tip on the value of the bill not perceived value of the food.

    Disney actually has little to do with Disney on Ice. They just license out the name. All the "X on ice shows" are run by the same people who ran the Ringling brothers circus.

    Got a bag of beans for $19 at a coffee shop today. They give you a free drip coffee with it.

    I mindlessly clicked the 20% tip button. Contemplating submitting a fraud claim.

    I typically eat 60% of my meal, complain and receive a refund. Then finish the meal if they don’t take it back.

    I probably need to stop getting drunk and going to charleys (hot sub place where they cook it in front of you) and emphatically slamming a five on the counter because it looks so good and I only had to ask 3x to put a ridiculous amount of sauce on my buffalo chicken.

    Tipped $150 a few weeks ago on a $150 bill.

    Went out and they overcooked our steak (medium well/well vs med rare). Took it off the bill plus one of our apps.

    My dog boarder also has a groomer, so there's an option for tipping when you check out. My two dogs just spent 6 nights there, which was a pretty substantial total. When I picked them up Saturday afternoon, I was tired and nearly tapped the 20% button out of habit. Ever since, I've been wondering how I would have handled asking them to correct my mistake and if there's an "undo tip" option.

    We use square like most cafes (at least for now, their new pricing hits Nov 1 and gonna really hurt). I've had probably 30 or so people ask to change/remove their tip after hitting.

    I do it because it would be dick to say sorry no you have to stay with it. Its ballsy when you hit like $1 on a 5 latte order then ask to have it removed but hey whatever.

    Thats a nightmare scenario. If it's <$20 I'll just let it be and not even think about it. For (I'm assuming) $50+ I'll have a moral dilemma. I'd probably still just walk out and just be mad about it for a few hours.

    There was a beer bar that recently closed that was just cans so it was a dude handing you a can out of a cooler. They had their preset tips to 30,40,50% and people used to the $1,2,3 or 15,20,25 that square auto sets it to were always like oh fuck I just gave this dude $12 for handing me 4 beers. It was shitty.

    When I used to frequent Jackie O’s for bottle releases, I would pick up cases to bring back to Cleveland for friends (muling). The first time I wasn’t paying attention and hit 20% on the iPad for $600 worth of beer. I was all “waaaaaaaaaait a second”
