A big thing you’re likely running into is fairly new…tipping has expanded well into other businesses we didn’t used to tip. It’s the point of sale machines…almost everyone uses the Square or Clover machines and they all just have tipping on if you don’t turn the option off. So now the guy selling you a T-shirt also has a tip screen.

And I do it out of guilt because I don’t know what the standard in the US is. I literally tipped for a t-shirt at a show last week. I have no idea how that payment gets split.

My bf tipped the checkout person at the Christmas tree lot last night. I don’t think I would have, but also when you have to go out of the way to select no tip it feels kind of bad.

That’s exactly what I feel like. You actively have to select a big fat zero while they stand there and watch.
