Couple? What Couple?

Cassie from Tacoma is disgusted by her boyfriend Mark’s refusal to tip servers. She says she loves everything else about him, and he is not at all a cheap person, but he draws a really hard line on this for some kind of philosophical reason. She says she is embarrassed when they go out and even tries to sneak tips when he is not looking. When Mark comes on, he says tipping is a cultural problem; that the customers are not the boss of the servers and he shouldn’t be expected to pay their wages. He thinks if everyone took this stance it would eventually help to raise wages for servers. This ignites the P1’s on the phones with several people chiming in on both sides of the tipping debate and going into great detail on how much servers make and don’t make. It gets very passionate – so much so that we forget we are supposed to be helping Cassie and Mark with their relationship drama.
