amylou said...

Um wow! The nerve!!!
This was kind of like my service today at a sit down.

The Lilac Rabbit said...

Wow... I don't even know what to say to that. Tipping at Mc"Noname's"??? Crazy!

AmberDenae said...

Haha, I love your thoughs on this matter. I love your paper rants. They always make me smile. :)

suzy said...

couchbarnacle: aw shucks. :)
amylou: isn't it kind of crappy that you still have to tip even for bad service just because it's a sit-down? llllame.
lilac rabbit: inDEED. hmph.
amber: thanks :D

thats crazy! i will never tip at a fast food place where i walk up and order my meal. They don't do that where i live, plus how do you tip for something thats like $2. you dont. i'm glad you didnt tip her, and what did she except you to give her!? like 50 cents??

Lame sauce.

Mrs. Wilson said...

A TIP BUTTON? At a FAST FOOD PLACE? I will never use it. Never.

Also, you failed to mention that your fruit & yogurt parfait was probably only half full. AM I RIGHT?

My friend got a small mid-night frosty the other day, and the boy at the window charged her card and then said, handing it back to her, "I charged $1.50 for the tip. Have a good night," and shut the window. So... a $ .99 frosty now costs almost three dollars?!

Liz said...

NO FREAKING WAY McDonald's actually thought you would tip them! HAHA comedy. Also, your illustrations are adorable.

I hate mean thought bubbles.

And also {somewhat} nameless businesses that try to get creative in compensating their employees instead of just giving them a 10 cent raise.

And ok, I've just gotta ask. In the "when I was your age" doodle, is that a little old lady with a walker? Hahahahahaha. Yes. Tonight (in my own little world) it is decidedly so, and it totally cracks me up!

LOVE this paper rant.

weird....I always feel bad not tipping whenever i see a tip box, but then again...if they aren't waiters, don't they get paid well?

biscuit said...

that must have been a fluke, i have never EVER seen a tip button at mcd's... that's NUTS! i would NEVER TIP!!!! EVER!!!! cute cute, as always!

Steph said...

Haha!! This is soo cute :) Really funny, although I've never been asked to tip at a fast food place!! x

Carmen said...

I had this very same experience the other day! Only, mine was over some mediocre butter chicken. AND it didn't give me a "no" option-- it just gave me the option of % or $. I fumed about it for the rest of the meal.

suzy said...

mrs. wilson: you are right. absolutely. isn't that annoying? plus, i think they're making the actual containers smaller lately as well...

aubrey: i KNOW right? people these days. phf.

liz: haha comedy, indeed. :) and thanks.

michal: what. well now i see i have no right to complain. that's completely lame. if i were her i probably would have tapped on the drive through window and asked for my buck fifty back.

angela: it absolutely is supposed to be! haha. :)
thank you!

biscuit: ME NEITHER. amen.

jen g-son: even if they don't get paid well...is that my job? i just want a freaking parfait, and i don't want to pay even more for it than i already have to!

carmen: it ruins the whole experience hey? boo.

aaand thanks, steph! :)

Holly Knitlightly said...

Reallllllllly? I can't believe they expected a tip... ha!

Amyschmamey said...

The only fast food place I EVER tip at is Sonic. I mean. Maybe if the mcdonalds employees would strap on some roller skates and bring my food to my table...

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

I hate the tipping culture. At least in some places it's more under control, but in Vancouver these days, it's creeping up to 15%! And tipping in bars is retarded to, when all they do is take the lid off your beer. Maybe if they make a cocktail, but otherwise, absolutely not!

suzy said...

holly: ridiculous right? pft.

amyschmamey: sonic? what's this?

emily: no kidding...i wish tipping was back to where it originated: a little something extra given in gratitude for an extra well done job.

Maddy said...

Hehe. That was great!

suzy said...

thanks maddy :)
