DAILY VIDEO: Why we shouldn’t tip

College Humor

The College Humor folks might just be trying to start a fight, but their latest “Adam Ruins Everything” video — a series featuring Adam Conover annoying you into better understanding a subject — takes on the distinctly American custom of tipping servers at restaurants. Conover breaks down the history of tipping and dispels some myths about improving quality of service before offering the simple suggestion that paying staff a living wage should be the responsibility of the employers. Regardless of where you stand on tipping, the important thing is the Europeans are laughing at us.
