‘I’m in the f*cking drive-thru’: TikToker says ‘tipping culture’ has gone too far in viral video

One TikToker is calling for a “tipping culture” and explaining how uncomfortable they are choosing hers from a fast food joint.

User Justice Russell (@real.recovery), who often shares content about recovering from eating disorders, posted a video from her car after picking up chicken and chips from a local burger shop.

“I’m sorry to say this, but the tipping culture has gotten out of hand,” she said. “I went to the checkout window, and she asked, ‘How much would you like to tip?'”

This question gave TikToker a headache because she didn’t expect to tip a fast food restaurant while in line. She certainly didn’t expect to be asked if she was going to do so.

“I said, ‘Oh no, not today,’ and then I got really upset. But like a country girl, what am I going to tip you? I’m fucking driving,” she says in the video.

Tipping is a hotly debated issue in the US, where restaurant servers are legally allowed to pay below the minimum wage, forcing them to rely on customer tips.

Russell said she always tip 20% “even if the service is bad” for services at restaurants and sit-down nail salons. But driving was already crossing the line for her.

“I drove myself… to avoid a delivery driver,” she said.

While TikTok viewers often brace for bad news, everyone agreed with her that the “tipping culture” is turning into something of an uncomfortable and inconvenient affair, all because of the family. recruitment does not pay enough people.

“I went to a self service frozen yogurt shop and she asked for a tip and I was like uhhhhhhh you’re just behind the register ???” @meepmeep46 recalls.

“I have a rule, if I don’t sit down, I don’t tip,” explained @sarahsalami4. “We tip for the service they provide us. It really got out of hand. “

Another viewer suggested that someone got mad when she didn’t tip when ordering a takeaway pizza, and another insisted that takeout orders are never charged.

Finally, Russell suggested that her destination should be “literally, just charge me $2 more for my meal, don’t make me feel bad,” but some viewers even had a suggestion. better idea.

“How about rich people just paying fair wages to their workers instead of putting it above other working class people,” @tylerlamanna wrote.

The Daily Dot has reached out to Russell via TikTok comment and Instagram message.
