“I would take this over a tip any day lol,” Argued one user in a comment that shocked people.
“The Remaining Balance Was 1.57 I Was Able To Get an Ice Cream After My Shift… I Cried”
Another commenter exposed the dark side of this dangerous tipping method, “When I worked at cafe someone used a gift card, and the remaining balance was 1.57 I was able to get an ice cream after my shift… I cried.”
