Should We Stop Tipping Bartenders?! Why One Writer Thinks We Should . . .
Here's a guy who barely drinks, yet believes that tipping your local bartender is a waste of $$$. He thinks you should be tipping instead your mail carrier, bus driver, pilot . . . basically anyone other than a bartender.
More of his thoughts on the subject:
"That overly-bearded hipster who has ignored you in favor of people who display more cleavage or douchebags who are more aggressive than you or jerks who flash large bills, is clearing nearly $500 — 80% in cash — during a standard 8-hour shift on a busy night. And when he doesn't serve you for 15 minutes, despite your constant eye contact, followed by internal heeing and hawing about how you're not going to tip the bastard, you do it anyway, for fear of retribution that if you don't tip him this time, your 15 minute wait will be doubled to a half hour sentence next time."

So what do YOU think about what he says?!
