Starbucks ask for tips, the little local donut place has a tip jar, my deli has a tip jar, almost every food establishment i have seen has some form of tip jar whether the person is sitting or ordering from a window.

I dont think its that uncommon for the tip jar to be seen, i think youre just taken aback at panera using their technology for a tip jar as well.

Theres a little taco place in my area where you walk up and order than then they call your name and you come back and grab the food and their Credit Card thing ask if you want to leave a tip. were living in the.....

I do see tip jars at local establishments quite often, and now that you say it, I think you are right about the technology thing. If there was just a jar that said tips on it, at Panera, I don't think I would care. People don't usually carry cash anymore, so asking about a tip on the screen probably yields a higher percentage of people tipping. For some reason it feels more intrusive or pushy, but maybe it's just the logical next step in asking for tips...It never occurred to me.

Sorry to upset you, I seem to have somehow touched a raw nerve. I just didn't get your rant.

The tip is not reserved for the server. You don't realize that tips are split between servers, cashiers, cooks & dishwashers? That tip is split up many ways. I will tip, but if asked when I'm purchasing I usually don't.

My .02 for what that's worth. Life is just too short to worry about the little stuff. Rant on if it works for you.

I'm not upset, your comment just didn't have much substance. I'm aware that at places that do not have servers, the tip is for all the employees. I do tip at local shops that I frequent often, bc I know the people and the service is great. It was, as lilonespaz discovered, the perceived intrusiveness that I didn't like about asking for a tip on the card reader.

The reason for the rant is to get other peoples perspective or thoughts on my experience. And since I know none of you and it's the internet, people are more than happy to tell you exactly how they feel. The exchange of ideas and perspective is the best thing about the internet. Although, most of the time one is trolled or just simply shit on.

That was not directed towards you. If anything you first comment was low effort. Nothing wrong with that, especially since you took the time to continue the conversation.

I'll gripe about Panera too.. they got rid of the best bagel variety they had on the menu. Jalapeno Cheddar. Was super pissed and haven't gotten breakfast from them since then.
