You should have looked her straight in the eyes, looked up to her hair and said "It's okay, I think you'll need it. But make sure the hairdresser chooses the cut, because something tells me you aren't the greatest at making decisions."

I've heard that Canadians are exceptionally polite. Maybe she was trying to subtly tell you that she found a hair on her donut. Next time she comes in and tell her she's won a free cream-filled donut, and then go in the back and make her a "special" one. Include a complimentary hair of a different sort.

I used to work at a Tim Hortons downtown, this story made me laugh. The wierdest poeple in the country flock to Tims in groups. Idk why, buy if youve worked there youde agree xD

Yeah Starbucks has a tip jar, but their employees receive minimum wage. At restaurants the waitresses receive below minimum wage and the difference comes from tips. Tips jars at coffee shops are just selfish kids wanting to get paid for work they are already getting paid for.

...If you knew anything about Tim Hortons then you'd know it's common for people to leave their change behind. The "tip" is usually miniscule if they get one at all. If you knew anything about the food service industry in North America, you'd know waiters/waitresses often have a lower minimum wage than some part time high school kid starting their first day of work at Wal Mart... so the sence of entitlement comes from the need to ummmm feed their kids. Not this d-bag, mind you... but before painting an entire group of people with the same brush, why don't you use your head for a second

According to the US Department of Labor, an employer is legally required to pay compensation if the hourly wage and the tips don't add up to the minimum wage. http://www.dol.gov/wb/faq26.htm

What you said: "..." What you should've said: "Yeah, becasue I want a haircut from someone that takes 20 minutes to decide which donut she wants with her coffee!"
