I decided that since you love me enough to buy me an expensive ass pizza, I’d just go get some seeds and drinks from the corner store, that’s usually less than 15$ dollars which is just less than a pizza no matter where I get it + Tip. WHY IS TIPPING A THING?
Because people are not paid a living wage. Restaurant Service industry people make less than $3 an hour and depend on tips to make the ends meet.
Why would you take a job that didn’t pay a living wage?
‘Cause you gotta work and that is all you can get, mainly because that is what is being offered in the Labor Market (concept). At one time in America there was a sentiment that it was unAmerican to tip. Economic times do change.
