Automatic tipping is everywhere, and it’s time to do something about it.
I saw it at a pizza restaurant in Provo, Utah, recently. When I paid for my order, the electronic payment system asked if I wanted to tip 10% (cheapskate!), 15% (better!) or the correct amount, 20%. No, the touchpad didn’t actually comment on the choices, but the incorrect selection was clear: the “no tip” box that wasn’t highlighted.
It was a takeout order, for goodness sake.
“Should you say “yes” to automatic tipping?”
