BuzzFeed — and I — obviously want you to stay home during the coronavirus pandemic. However, since restrictions have loosened up in some areas, a lot of people are going to restaurants and eating/drinking outside.
Here's why you shouldn't be tipping 20% if you're dining out:
1.It's not like they're doing more work or anything:
2.They're not exposed to strangers, who may or may not be practicing the proper pandemic protocol:
3.It's not like they have to take extra trips or deliver drinks and food in longer distances because everything is outdoors now:
4.They never have to deal with stupidity:
6.People are probably understanding and cooperative:
7.Like, super chill:
8.They're def making more money (this is someone's recent paycheck)!
9.Like, servers notoriously ALWAYS make good tips. This was a few days ago, BTW:
10.It's not like they're dealing with the fact that they have to wear a mask to protect you — while you are able to take yours off at the table:
11.It's not like rain affects their business — they make the same regardless!
12.Yeah, definitely easier, if the restaurant stays open:
13.They've gotta get hazard pay (aka extra pay for working during a pandemic) — right?!
14.They prob don't have additional sidework/cleaning to do during work:
15.Or extra setup:
16.And lastly, it's not like they're scared they're going to catch the coronavirus while trying to make a living — not stressful at all!
