Am I the only one out there who doesn't automatically tip 15% on everything? I was thinking about this on the way to work. At the coffee stand I go to (actually, every coffee stand I've been to), they have a tip cup out. Some people throw in their change, some people even tip a dollar for a $3-4 coffee. I never tip baristas, but I do tip other places; at restraunts, I usually start at 10% and go up from there if the service was good. But doesn't it seem like tips are becoming more and more expected, and almost mandatory? I mean, tipping a waiter is one thing, when they are making repeated trips to your table, filling drinks, etc. But I really don't feel like I should have to tip someone at a coffee stand or a fast food joint for a 30-second job that they are getting paid for anyway.
