A Retail Website
One user expressed shock when asked if they wanted to add a tip after cashing out on an online retail store.

A commenter expressed particular disdain for this model, frustrated because the only work the employee did was hand over an empty cup.

A Fast Food Restaurant
A forum member was surprised when they were asked to tip at a popular fast food restaurant. They said it felt a bit excessive, even though service workers are notoriously underpaid.
A Liquor Store
One respondent was particularly shocked over finding a tip jar inside their locally owned liquor store.
A Medical Spa
This may be the craziest spot of all. After getting some Botox done, one person alleged they were asked to add a gratuity for their nurse on top of the cost of the procedure.
