I remember when i worked at dominos the management just let massive swarms of gnats surround and die in the big open container of pizza sauce that we used for all the pizzas. So that was how much they cared about the customer. Imagine how little they cared about their own workers. I think the tipping system is a stupid extra step in the payment process and that food should just cost more and workers paid more, but I still tip for a single reason which is (this happens more often than you think.) "If I dont tip, this guys literally going to spit in my food or fuck up my order on purpose out of spite." Also even though i embrace the idea of the tipping system not existing, the culture in the US is already this way, and theres nothing i can do about it, so i will also tip because i feel bad for the worker because i know theyre getting screwed by the system where we underpay them. It's like a snake trying to eat its own tail, an endless loop where the cause and effect cause each other. The only good thing about the tipping system is that it allows lower food prices for people who literally cant tip because theyre poor.
