Thank you to all of you wonderful smiling coffee shop baristas, juicers, cashiers and other customer service people. Ya'll are great. I'm generally a big tipper and when times are tight I usually at least tip something even if I can't afford it. If/when someone's being rude because they're having a bad day; I'll try and cheer you up or send you good vibes if I can - or just leave it alone. To all of you otherwise passive aggressive 'proud to be an asshole' baristas, juicers, cashiers, customer service people who actually get offended when I don't reward your shitty behavior with monetary compensation: Honestly, what do you expect?? Not only am I not going to tip you when you're being an asshole WHILE I'M BEING PROMPTED TO SELECT HOW MUCH TO TIP YOU, but I will never tip you. Nor will I be coming back to your place of business. But, I'm not worried. Why? Because you're a dying breed. Everyone's sick of this shit and I'm happy to see that your numbers have been steadily on the decline. Did/do you think you'll be able to get away with this attitude and not have it come back to bite you in the ass? Regardless of what others did to you, you CHOSE to sink to this level, And believe me, we reap what we sow. I won't be gunning for you, but the Universe will. However, I would like to add that I'll remember your face and I sure as shit I'm not going to be doing you any favors.
