I'd just grab all 5 right off the bat and apologize for the table not having been cleared properly prior to their being seated.

it's a good question.  and happening at the same time as the non-tipped wage is also increasing.

Stop asking me to tip at jimmy John’s you stupid machine!
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

The last few weeks have been really great. I think I have only seen 1 tip screen and smashed that "non merci" button so hard

It seems like it would be in a company's interest to increase the income of its employees without footing the bill for it.

One that seems to be going in the opposite direction of the norm:  Starbucks. 

They incentivize you to use their app via free crap every so often, birthday drinks, etc.  The app used to ask you, after every purchase, how much you would like to tip.  They took that function away a year or so ago.  So now, you pay with the app, but if you don't have cash(lol, what's that) their employees get no tip.  Kinda wild. 

I assume they found some legal reason to stop doing this and just took the option away before they got sued, but who knows.  Given the tip environment everywhere else, this one is a head scratcher.

I can probably think up a dozen theories, but I do wonder if there is an actual reason.

Taking out any ulterior motives, my main theory is due to consumers’ disdain at menu price increases, so restaurants basically have customers subsidize their employees’ wages in order to keep prices down.

Yeah, it's gotten pretty pervasive in Canada as well. It's small tips at Tim Hortons but still, 7% for a drive through or airport coffee order? Just seems ridiculous. And yeah most tip prompts here only start at 20% and go up from there.

I get a coffee at Einstein on the weekends as a treat for me. Love their dark roast. If you bring your own cup, its like 2 bucks so I bring my 20oz Yeti. The screen asks for a tip. I give a buck every once in a while, but am really annoyed every time. You see, at Einstein, you get your own coffee. So not only have I brought my own cup, I actually pour the coffee in said cup. The only function they served was making the coffee initially and ringing me up. I feel like the company should pay them for those duties, not me.

when you are checking out on the starbucks app it has the total at the bottom and then a little button that says "wanna leave a tip?" but you do not have to engage with that button in order to complete your order.

When you are scanning the bar code in the drive through, that isn't there.   It used to be a pop up after they scanned your app, though.

I get my hair cut at a local salon called Great Clips, where you can buy a card that pre-buys X number of haircuts so when you're done you just swipe the card and that's it for the transaction. The problem is that it makes tipping impossible unless you have cash cause they cannot separately charge your credit card for just a tip.

I actually find that awkward cause I know those people cannot be making much money at all if they're not getting tips. Because you see, even though you might think the highest priority at Great Clips is a great haircut, they are also very focused on making the experience affordable with a great price.

Whether it's Great Clips or any barber shop I tip fairly generously. Most make it very personal and do a great job, and especially post pandemic they were hurting for business and it's worth throwing a few extra at them.

JFC, you're still going to Great Clips? I hope you bring cash every single time.

I call it bullcrap.  Most folks paid the amount with a credit card and then threw a five spot on the counter for a tip.  I bring a 20 spot and give it to the gal at Great Clips.  It's a nice and easy way to pay your stylist.
