      Yea, I never understood those. What tf is a handling fee/ service charges (in restaurants), etc.? There must be SOME explanation for this, or at least SOME scenario where this is a good idea, right?

        It’s now the “Pay us more if you want your delivery to survive.”

        I was sending flowers to my aunt, and it had a big warning about how tipping goes to the delivery driver, and it could mean the difference between good service and great service.

        These fucking flowers were $150, and 20% is $30.

        I sucked it up and paid but I’m going to just hire a random person next time to pick flowers from a graveyard at these prices.

        In restaurants that should be for preparing tables, cleaning dishes etc instead of including that in food/drink
