Question for you all, related to the tip question:

Do you give tips for counter help service? Such as a place where you go to the counter to order and then they call your number for you to pick up. There is no actual waiter service, but I see many places with the "tip jar" on the counter. I personally think this is BS and don't generally leave any tip. I may leave a dollar for a person that cleans the tables. One example is Starbucks, which I never go to since don't drink coffee myself, but they always have the jar. Seems at the prices Starbucks coffee is, they should pay the people working there a fair wage that does not require tips to survive.

After Monday & Tuesday even the calendar says, W-T-F...
