The really disturbing thing is your girlfriend sending you down to starbucks in the middle of the night so she can have an overpriced hot chocolate.

I think they are much more analogous to a bartender than the fryer cook.

FWIW I rarely tip if I am getting coffee or hot chocolate, but will tip if the drink requies some skill or effort.

We have them all over ABQ. On every damned corner, and there's more to come I think.

Just tip your change, you cheap bastards.

I always tip the change at donut/coffee shops whether I am inside or doing the drive-thru. We're talking about 25c here. What's the big deal?

I have never seen a tip cup at a drive-thru though.

Also a lot of drive-thru attendants are kind of shocked when I give them back the change. Might not be too common.

I always toss pennies and nickels (dimes sometimes, it depends) in the tip cups because I never spend them anyway, and that's better than them ending up on the floor or between the couch cushions or in the trash or wherever.

People actually throw money into the trash?

this is totally unecessary. The family guy "she'll pretty much have to" is far funnier, and better done.

I stopped leaving change in the tip cups after it hit me that these semi-braindead employees rarely, if ever, will say "Thank You" afterwards.

If somebody, even if it's only one customer, might want to leave a tip for me, should I not accept it?

Agreed. My father once told me that there's a simple question you can ask yourself if you're the employee in a situation like this where you have a close situation, and you're deciding whether to leave the tip jar out or not:

"Would I rather the money were in my pocket or somebody else's?"

This is pathetic. It's like saying, "I'm, going to be standing around in this park anyway. I might as well put a tin cup out and panhandle."

I went to Chipotle a couple days ago. They had a tip jar as well. I'm not tipping in a freakin' cafeteria style restaurant.
