I usually go on a rant about how no one is entitled to a tip and yadda, yadda, yadda, but the audacity to call a restaurant when it’s getting ready to close and have them make an order for you while they’re cleaning up and give them $0.93 is some byooooool-ish. Jesus, at least throw in a full dollar. I have mixed feelings about counter tips, but this is just not excusable at all. Fifteen percent isn’t even $2. I would rather have exact change than for somebody to give me a $0.93 tip. This reminds me of a guy in my Toastmasters group who gives me a quarter every time he says my name wrong, but he keeps on giving me half-dollars. After he did it twice, I just shooed him off. I do not want to be the person who goes to restaurants/retail spaces asking, “Do you accept half dollars?” I’m not even sure they accept half dollars for library renewals.
