Americans Resent Preset Tip Suggestions and Due to Inflation Squeeze Are Tipping Less


As Americans’ wealth is under inflationary attack
To save money trying to on eating out hold back
Surveys also show tips are being reduced
And many Americans upset with preset percentage tip to income boost
As meal costs have continued to increase along with sales taxes
Here is a tip on how to put more eating out money in your pocket back
To be served while sitting down tip at 15 % of the pretax cost of the meal
How many of us in terms of public service we pay for think we are getting a fair deal?
Sadly too many restaurants’ omit 15% from suggested tips
And base it on the added amount sales taxes have gripped
You don’t have to be a math wizard to a 15% tip compute
Move a decimal and add half that number for the tip loot
Or buy at the fast food drive in window where tips are not expected
And space for a tip on credit cards has been rejected
For fast food workers it is mostly their first entry level type of work
Not a desired career and minimum wage now increases seem to occur like clockwork
