The Bitter Irony of the Service Industry

Proposition 1: The more people that come into my coffee shop at once, the longer it is going to take to get each person their drink.

Proposition 2: The more people I make drinks for at once, the harder I have to work.

Proposition 3: The longer it takes to be served, the less American consumers are willing to tip for services (beverage quality is largely irrelevant).

Conclusion: The harder I have to work, the less I will be tipped, as evidenced by today's shift.

In other words, worst shift ever.
