I find that a lot of things are excusable including price increases though I question the level of some of the ones I see. But things like not giving you what you want/ask for/expect on top? Much less so. And reason enough FOR ME to drop/substitute with other available options.
TBH same applies to 30% default tip options. Which I am starting to implement.
TBH #2: Yes, during lockdowns without price increases it did make sense to me for tips to increase as people were struggling with reduced custom and correspondingly income. At this stage we have increased prices (which automatically means higher tips).
And just as a perspective 18% from 15% is a 20% tip increase/inflation. 15% to 20% tip increase is 33.33% inflation.
Not 6% or 8% or even 10%. On top of the natural increase because of the increase in price.
This doesn't even count the fact that my local subway now defaults to 20% tip and inquiries seem to indicate that the workers are not exactly seeing most of it. Or the many additional places that are putting out tip jars.
And to see how fast these things embed, as I am writing this I am considering that I would consider myself chintzy if I didn't hit the 20% button.
