Why I Avoid Activities that Require Tipping



I just realized this morning why I always go and pick up pizza rather than get it delivered to my door.
I hate the tipping process. I hate the expectation. I hate to think what they might think of me based on what I give them.

The only person I tip on a regular basis is whatever lady cuts my hair at Great Clips that day. A $13 haircut and I tip $5. Not because of the quality of their work, but because I'm confident that a 38% percent is good enough to avoid resentment.

Wow, I only tip Great Clips $3. Now I feel bad.

I'm pretty sure $3 is good. I've seen a lot of $0's and $1's in front of me. But don't worry, mine's solely out of guilt and fear.

$3 is perfect
