Why he hell am I supposed to tip, at the minimum, a dollar for a bartender to get me a drink? I’m not talking about making something fancy. I’m talking about just getting me a beer. Who invented this stupid rule? Now I should probably clarify a few things here. If you have been getting drinks all night and the bartender or waitress is cool then tip away. I’m just talking about going up to a bar and saying “hey bartender I’d like a bottle of beer” and when I pay on the spot I’m supposed to throw a dollar down at the same time I pay for the drink. I’m not a fan of this rule.
