25 Posts Exposing The Height Of Insanity That Tipping Culture Has Reached

Published 3 months ago

There’s a lot of debate on ‘tipping culture’ currently. Typically society has always tipped their waiters, valets and concierges. But lately, there seems to be an arrogant entitlement displayed by those demanding tips. Unfortunately, many in the public balk at any demands imposed forcefully as tipping is seen as a more voluntary gesture. 

Interestingly, “tipflation” is a trending term used to describe this phenomenon. More and more people are encountering infuriating tipping-related incidents while travelling, dining or dealing with deliveries. But the proof is in the pictures and you can look through them before you decide for yourself, whether to tip or not to tip.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
