Poor Shankster!!  Maybe this will help...

Today is National Doughnut Day!  Our local bakery/cafe is celebrating with Profiteroles (a cream puff ice cream sandwich).

My promotion to Colonel is effective today.

As I posted earlier, had to cancel the ceremony due to an ailing grandfather, but we were still able to sneak in a few family photos…

Anyone else been noticing the recent trend (recent here anyway) of credit card payment machines asking if you want to leave a tip?  Both local golf courses have added this when you check in and pay for the tee time.  I totally get tipping for services such as haircuts, food servers, etc., but folks at the pro shop? Or perhaps it's to tip the entire course staff... don't know, didn't ask. What's next Walmart and Safeway cashiers... maybe the salesman who just took your $47,000 check for a car?  Curious what others are seeing?

That added tip on any service paid by Credit Card has been around maybe 4 years.

Pretty stressed out at the moment. I could potentially be up for promotion in the summer of 2023, so that process starts one year out, which is now. Gotta get a bunch of stuff together.

Best of luck getting everything together, but it is awesome you're up for a promotion and I hope things work out for you.

@Shankster sorry to hear about the house, but I'm glad you got out when you did. House hunting is such a pain, but hopefully it just means there's a right one out there for you.

Oh yeah, that's been around for a long time.  But the pro shop register... not until this year.

It's understood in some industries like food service and personal service, including accommodations that wages are set with the expectation the servers, housemaids, etc will be receiving tips to compensate for the lack of adequate wage for an income to barely scrape by, an expectation that service acumen will be superior to achieve those tips to promote the business as a quality establishment.  We Americans are unique in the world for this concept as tipping is virtually unheard of in the rest of the world and when Americans travel abroad it usually contributes to the perception that Americans are arrogant and presuming.  In the combat zone of Iraq, our Iraqi interpreters would go out to buy the pizza because the first American warfighters when told it would be $1 would pay a $5 and refuse the change, which set the price for Americans at $5 when everyone else was paying $1 and the interpreters thought it was an unfair practice.  Good people are everywhere.

Usually those tip prompts go ignored - and it pays to calculate the percent purported to be what is shown as one place showed a 20% of $40.00 as $9.24 (didn't even try to hide the deceit by rounding off).  I carry cash to give tips, then I know those who deserve to receive it get it and with my personal thanks.

I have not noticed any tip prompts at the club house but I usually pay cash for the occasional beverage or snack at the turn so I wouldn’t notice the tip prompt.

As for the part that I highlighted above, I’ve noticed that several restaurants in my area have their tip suggestions on the ticket calculated after the tax which would explain the discrepancy in the suggestion. This has also caused me to make sure that I have cash on hand for the tip and recalculate it to reflect a tip on the food and service but not on the tax.

There’s a Hot Dog restaurant close by with a sign “Cash Preferred”. If you have use your Credit Card 7% will be added to the Bill.

Now the "we charge extra for CC use" I have seen at various establishments.  Their is a grocery chain Smith's (also Fry's) that got into a squabble with MC and VISA over use fees a few years ago and stopped accepting CC's.  They have since kissed and made up. But, I do know many small shops take a hit on CC fees.

I just don't understand what the basis of tip would be for simply paying your green fees.  It's like tipping the cashier at Safeway... maybe that's coming next 🙃.

Exactly, the Hot Dog place is a hole in the wall and their prices are really low anyway. There is not a waitstaff, you pick up your food as it’s announced.

That just reminded me, we have a Mexican restaurant near by where the prices are reflective of customers using a cc and they give a discount if you pay cash. Same end result.

Our Fareway grocery stores still have a person that walks your groceries to your car for you. I’ve tried tipping those guys and get told no.
