Okay, it's rant time. I know this is a bit political, but this practically wrote itself. Tipping is such a hot button topic, even on RHU. In case you have been blessed, you have probably heard the kerfuffle over Hillary Clinton paying a visit to a Chipotle... and not leaving a tip. No matter which side of the fence you are about our political candidates, do we really have to reach so far for a reason to hate someone based on whether or not one of them tips at a fast food place?
Let's be honest here: Chipotle is not fine dining, or even a real sit-down restaurant. Chipotle is a fast food place, with the authenticity of its "Mexican-ness" hotly contested. The people who work at Chipotle are paid minimum wage.... REAL minimum wage, not that $2.15 paid to restaurant waiters and waitresses and made up for in tips.
Now I'm not dismissing retail slaves who are paid minimum wage, nor am I trying to imply that tips at fast food aren't gratefully welcomed.
However, many fast food places actively discourage tips, and you can actually get into trouble for accepting them.
If she had failed to tip at a sit-down restaurant, this would be a different story.
The ridiculousness of what turned into in-depth analysis by news stations all over resulted in Jon Stewart laughing his ass off about it...
So, while some people will vote based on things like stances on abortion, equal rights, or job creation, we get to listen to idiots discussing whether or not a famous person tipping at a fast food chain means that they are Satan incarnate. Thanks news media...
