    Re: Sonic - do you tip?

    Tipping is demeaning, even insulting, and a thing of the past.
    These places must be forced to pay a living wage - and this info must be openly posted - either one way or the other.
    To add...things change....those who do not are conservatives....

    Re: Sonic - do you tip?

    Never been to a Sonic, but apparently one just opened in Chicago recently.

    Generally, I'll tip any waitress/waiter if they do the same basic things as a waiter/waitress at any restaurant. I don't care if it's fast food or not.

    If all they do is sit behind a counter, push buttons, and then call out a number making me come forward, get my food and bring it back to my seat, they don't get a tip.

    Just don't try to tip a cop. They get pissy about it.

    Depends on what you tip them with. *wink wink, nudge nudge*

    I'm gonna guess that the beating I receive would be twice as bad if I tried the "wink wink nudge nudge" style of tipping on a cop.

    Re: Sonic - do you tip?

    I used to not tip much, but this week my brother recently started working at a Sonic. They get paid like $3 an hour and rely on tips for income. Historically I have just had them keep the change, but now I am going to tip more when I go.

    With your 2 scenarios I would say that neither deserved a tip. They were pushing and almost trying to force you to tip them, and that isn't right. I've never had anything like that personally happen to me at Sonic, but I did witness a shooting/attempted theft of one once.

    Wow! I didn't know they made so little. I'll tip from now on too.

    Do note that when people work jobs like that for less than minimum wage, the company is obligated to pick up the tab if tips don't suffice. So, the employee will always make at least minimum wage.

    But many do, many do not tip, per this poll.
    And the "fast" places are replacing the "slow".
    In the 60's I worked at Sears and Roebuck tires and batteries...half my pay may have been in tips, and I earned them...young, foolish, and healthy back then...
    But its a changing world.
