Tipping...going overboard?

Dec. 26th, 2005 | 10:52 pm

OK, so I've always felt that tipping at counter service is dodgy at best. The guy who does my huge special order coffee? Maybe. The standard Starbucks? Come on, they get *dental* for crying out loud. The whole point of counter service is that you are *not being waited on* by someone running back and forth to get your stuff, and they are not being paid below minimum like a waiter is.

The final frontier - I go through the Starbucks DRIVE THRU. I repeat, the DRIVE THRU, and there is, on the ledge outside the window, a tip cup. I don't think I should tip for food handed through my window unless the server is on roller skates.
