A TIKTOK video has left people divided on what is considered the right tip for hospitality workers.
The video, which was posted on March 2, has sparked heated debate in the comments section after a woman was reportedly spotted using a bottle of vodka as a tip.
A TikTok creator who runs the channel @tswizz86 posted a video of herself in a Starbucks driveway, tipping the barista a tiny bottle of vodka.
Once the barista hands her the coffee drink, @twizz86 hands her the bottle after turning to the camera and telling the audience, “That’s her tip.”
The comments section of this video has been filled with commenters who have taken sides and expressed their views on their actions.
“The fact that (you) don’t even think about other (people) when you say that is so sad,” wrote one commenter.
“Some (people) are young in recovery and it’s sad but it’s (true) and you’re the problem, you think you can flaunt alcohol like it’s nothing and it’s really hard for (people ) in recovery when (they) come into contact with (people) like you,” they added, according to Dailydot.com
The original creator responded to some of the comments, saying that she tipped the barista $50 after the video was shot and that she won’t tiptoe about everyone’s issues in society.
Other commenters took offense at the video creator making a joke at the employee’s expense.
“A good joke/prank never hurts,” wrote another commenter, according to Dailydot.com
“They’ve seen all the throwback comments, but they’ve only gotten in trouble[with their]boss because the bottle[is there].”
However, some people found the humor in the video.
Others stated that they would only have been happy about a tip.
“I don’t want alcohol, tip me like a normal person,” wrote another, according to the site. “That’s not it.”
