You know that little tip jar at smoothie places like Jamba Juice?

Ummmmm....what is the point? Are these workers not getting paid? They are not servers, not in the waitress/waiter sense. They blend your smoothie & hand it to you. That is their JOB. That is what they are getting paid to do. On top of that...it's not a difficult job. Pick up the blender, drop in the various ingredients, stick it on the blender, hit "blend," remove, pour in cup, stick lid on it, & hand it to you. Tough. Hey, I'd take that job in a heartbeat, I think it seems like fun...so I am not dissing. Just being honest. It's not a tough job. And they are paid to do the job. So why the tip jar? It irks me a bit, because I feel like it's there to make you feel guilty. Money is tight for me, & while I wouldn't NOT tip my waitress, I don't think you should tip people at places like this. I don't tip the McDonald's workers for scooping up my fries & putting them in the bag. I don't tip the Pizza Hut workers for slicing up my pizza & placing it in the box. Do you get my point? Why are smoothie joint workers any different?

Can someone explain this to me???
