I heard a silly discussion on the radio (Ken Schram…sigh) this morning about a bunch of poeple in the blogsphere up in arms about tipping baristas at Starbucks. Inane.
While I was listening to this I was buying my latte at Jitters (I hate Starbucks; their coffee is too boring; they are the McDonalds of coffee) I had to laugh. The tip cup had a little sign on it:
Tipping: Good for us, bad for the cows.
And, yes, I tipped the barista.
This must be an American thing because I have been sitting here in my office in sunnay Australia for an HOUR trying to work out why this is funny! I am saddened to admit that I just dont get it, so can you PLEASE explain it to me: its driving me crazy… !
Not that I condone such activity, of course.
You should, because its great fun…errrrr….so I have heard.
Thanks though, I can sleep easy now!
And though we *never* did this in Texas, I heard the folks up in Oklahoma used to go tipping as football practice… Make sure the bulls are in a seperate pasture, and it ain’t "breedin’ time" if you ever do this…B-)
cows are fat and so are we you may say you are not a but you are
thats bad so ya’ll need to stop but it is kinda funny
