I realized tonight that I’m wasting money when I tip at Sonic. I rarely order food there anyways, and would give the carhop a 50 cent-1.00 tip when I got a drink.
But wait… I’m just getting a drink, and these people get paid standard fast food wage.
Why? I’m not a bad tipper, in fact, just because of the people that I hang out with, if a waiter gets less than 25%, they’ve done something wrong (I associate with notoriously bad tippers). This is true even at buffet restaurants, where they just get me drink refills and take my plate away.
Which ones of you tip at Sonic, and who doesn’t?
