Here’s A Tip

Here’s A Tip

Let’s say your dinner bill is $142. The first two numbers are ten percent (14) and you double that for 20 percent (28) and you add that as your tip for a total of $170. I leave 20% as a habit, but if the service is particularly good I leave more. On the rare occasions when the service is bad (not the food), I call the manager and explain, so that the manager knows about it. But decreasing the tip hurts everyone in the place, because servers share all the tips, and they won’t know that someone’s service was inferior, they’ll just have less money to share.

Today, restaurants often print suggested tip amounts on the bills because they know a lot of people can no longer do simple math in their heads. (I see people pulling out a phone to calculate tips, and the cheaper people subtract the tax first.)

Remember the fried eggs in a pan commercial: “This is your brain on drugs”?

Well, this is your brain on AI: Just an empty pan.
