Leaving a Tip: A Custom in Need of Changing? -
I could go on against tipping, but let’s leave it at this: it is irrational, outdated, ineffective, confusing, prone to abuse and sometimes discriminatory. The people who take care of us in restaurants deserve a better system, and so do we.
That’s one reason we pay attention when a restaurant tries another way, as Sushi Yasuda in Manhattan started to do two months ago. Raising most of its prices, it appended this note to credit card slips: “Following the custom in Japan, Sushi Yasuda’s service staff are fully compensated by their salary. Therefore gratuities are not accepted.”
A million times “yes!” From Japan to Uber, the future is clear: death to tips.
We’re thrilled to tell the world about LISTEN - A new app that reinvents ringback tones in the era of smartphones. LISTEN is coming to the UK in late November 2013 and in the US in early 2014.
