They don't bring the coffee out to you after you sit down? This would be like going to an open air kitchen (Carrabba's or similar) and handing the chef a five. Oh thanks for doing the job you were hired for and get paid for, I'll just give you a buck because you are doing what you are supposed to be doing???
Nope, it's not coming out of my wallet. Unless they actually come to my seat, take my order, and then bring me my drink/food.... they are NOT getting a tip. The same goes for cashiers that have a tip jar by the register. Are you serious? Do you people actually believe that taking my order should hook you a tip? I don't think so. This goes for all of you bartenders out there too. You get ONE tip for my patronage at the bar. NOT a tip per drink. And before any of you "barista's" make a fuss about this, the bartender is making me an alcoholic drink or bringing me an alcoholic drink. The difference between coffee and alcohol cannot be overstated. Yes, there is a difference. Also, bartenders have the added responsibility of being the shrink to the common everyday man. That gives the bartender more right to a tip than a barista. A bartender will listen, a barista, or the ones I tend to get, seem to always be bitching about something.
Apparently tipping has spread to other occupations too. I had no idea that "movers" supposedly "got tips". My friend moved and they told him what the price would be for the move before the tip. That was their subtle way of saying, "Yes, you better damn well tip us!!!" Having thought about it, I still wouldn't tip them. They should be getting paid by their company for moving the shit. That means, whatever the company is charging the customer should filter on through. If the company isn't paying you movers enough then I highly recommend you get together and form your own company. Double charging the client is just bad business.
I can see tipping for food service to the table, bartender, delivery of food, taxi service, bellhop, and a haircut/ nails and all of the sides for women, but anything outside of that... not so much. Yes, even you bathroom trolls that stake out a corner in a bathroom and hand people paper towels or cologne, you people are not worth a tip. Why the hell is that even a thing??? That's not being helpful so much as it is being annoying. I think "bathroom attendant" is the official name but I prefer to label them "professional fart room sniffers." Let's be honest, those people smell more farts than the average Joe.
The point is, I see a very limited amount of professions that one should tip for. All of these new century, made up, tip professions are pure BS. Yet more and more professions are sticking a tip jar on the mantle and requesting tips for things that should be covered in the price of service. If it doesn't fall into the time honored tip professions then it isn't getting anything extra from me. Justify it all you want but like I said earlier, double dipping on the customer isn't cool.
