Wednesday Poll: Tipping And Worst Day Of The Week

The votes are in.

Last week we asked whether or not tipping should be banned, and the cost of service simply included in the final bill. The argument for the proposition was that the appropriate amount to tip depends greatly on social and cultural contexts, and thus leaves great potential for confusion, resentment, and guilt. The argument for the opposition was that there's no great harm in tipping, and that it incentivizes good service. In a Florida 2000-type result, "acceptable" beat "should be banned" 19-17.

This week we want to know what the crappiest point in the week is. Is it (a) Sunday evening - "Goddamnitt, I don't BELIEVE the weekend is over"; (b) Monday morning - "Fuck"; or (c) Wednesday afternoon - "So near yet so far"? Let us know what you think.
