Well, there's tea and pastries there, too, yanno. I always get a Chai when I go there. No reason to be completely thankless.


It's actually the law that if tips do not cover minimum wage, your boss has to make up the difference. I learned that after one exceptionally slow night at my job... So the worst you could do is like $7.25 an hour, which isn't bad especially if you aren't doing anything...

at least it's worth SOMETHING! i've been tipped with those billion dollar bills before :(

Exchange it with someone who drinks coffee. And at least they tipped you. There are many rude poeple out there.

i'm sure there is something you can find at starbucks - hot chocolate, a muffin, tea. at least they did tip. although 5 dollars on a 50 dollar bill is pretty cheap.

1 Be happy you goty a tip, $5 is 10% so that is a good value 2 Starbucks isn't just a coffee place go in 1 day look at the menu and have a nice cold drink or tea or somthing... that's not a fml that's just being picky

Thinking on it, who carries around $5 Starbucks gift cards? Who buys those just to tip with? Someone must have given it to them or something. In which case they were being very, very cheap. Tips are part of a server's income and random giftcards for expensive coffee doesn't really help. If you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to eat out.


Eh, I wouldn't say you can't afford to eat out, I'd just say you can only afford to hit up the dollar menu.

chillax... you can't expect a wonderful tip from everybody. They probably were a bit tight on money (we're in a recession or haven't you heard) but still wanted to leave you something. Be grateful, they could have blow you off altogether


seriously? she performed a service and didn't get paid! how would you like it if your boss came to you at the end of the week and gave you a couple olive garden cards instead of a check, do you think the electric company will take those as payment for your light bill. I really think gratuity should be included in all checks. OP fyl


They performed a service and they are getting paid. She didn't get a tip from one couple. Can you honestly say you give 15%-20% for every tip? Maybe they don't have enough money to tip and just were out on a date for an anniversary. I am a hairstylist, and a waitress I get it stinks but some people just don't tip since its part of their culture.
