I don't think coffee baristas should get tipped
Debate Rounds (3)
I agree that some people like yourself might find the electronic tip prompt somewhat intrusive but take a moment to think how much more convenient your life is now that you don't have to manage coins and bills. Is it really that inconvenient to press the no tip button? If you're actually feeling generous you just need to press 2 more buttons. It's still just a tip and personally I only tip for one of the following reasons 1. I get good service 2. I get a nice smile 3. I can afford it.
If it makes you feel bad by pressing the no tip button after you buy something then you could always just pay with cash.
I can"t say I eat at Mcdonalds often but when I go I am usually faced with an emotionless face and standard service. At most coffee shops I good personable service that leaves me with a smile (one of my tipping incentives).
If you prefer the service at Mcdonalds you could always get a mc cafe there.
If you are ok with using a tip jar then what is the big difference with the machine? At least with the machine they can see that you gave them a dollar but the tip jar a dollar could be a nickel because they didn't see it and wouldn't know the difference.
Like I said in my first argument; Everyone is using plastic and carrying around less coin these days resulting in far fewer tips for baristas. Baristas don"t expect tips, they hope for them and sometimes if they can put a smile on your face they get one. The machine just provides a means for that hope to continue because the jar is becoming extinct.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro and Con have their roles reversed in this debate which is odd. The arguments made by Pro for the Con position were more convincing, so points go to Pro.
