This is why i hate going to bars in the US. In other parts of the world bartenders get a (fairly) decent wage, and don’t have to rely on tips. A tip (at least in my home country) is supposed to be an award for a great service. I don’t have to pay for this guy’s or girl’s income. The bar owner should! Bar owners should pay fair wages, not exploit their employees! So, if a drink is say 8$ and i have to pay 9$, just friggin tell me 9$ in the first place!
