Tip your Sonic Drive In Carhops!!!

I'm an attorney who loves to rollerskate so much (and, uh, I have a six-figure student loan) that I took a gig as a rollerskating carhop at my local Sonic drive in. These kids make two-something an hour, plus tips... and people treat the drive in like it's a massively parallel drive through, and don't tip. "It's fast food." is the thinking. Anyway, those kids really depend on the tips. Me, I'm more or less doing it for my health and for the fun of it.

Wish I'd known that, the couple times I went to a Sonic. Y'all have done a good service with the reminder.

I had no idea that the Sonic carhops relied on tips! It makes sense, but I guess I just never realized. I generally pay with a card, and since there's no spot on the receipt for a tip (that I can recall), I never tipped! I'll be sure and rectify that in future visits...
