A puzzle as old as American eating culture itself: TO TIP OR NOT TO TIP.

That is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the – oh my head already hurts.

And so does my wallet.

So do a lot of our wallets. And thus the question is forthrightly posed for a generation anew.

She’s young, navigating this seemingly random game of tipping like all of us do.

So she reaches out to folks who may have some good advice: the TikTok community.

Surely some people out there have it a bit more figured out?

Another TikTok commenter hit the nail on the head for everyone.
