No one is talking about "getting rid of tipping" except the NRA (The slightly less evil one). And the reason they're talking about it is to scare you. The tip wage credit has fuckall to do with whether people tip or not. California got rid of it a long ass time ago. I assure you there are still restaurants there. They get MINIMUM WAGE + TIPS.
The National Restaurant Association is not your friend.
$15/hour + tips. That's what is going on.
The National Restaurant Association is against it because it costs shitty companies like Darden, Landry's, and Cheesecake Factory a huge amount of money.
But if a local restaurant is going to go out of business because they have to pay their servers and bartenders $15/hour then that restaurant was basically out of business already.
Don't put your name on shit for the National Restaurant Association they are working against your interests.

Edit: Here are some tips from YOU guys, thanks for all the support as well.
Everyone has a different background and experience in OW so I’ve noticed a lot of folks (myself included) have gaps in their knowledge/play-styles that can really impact success. I think we often take for granted what we know and just assume our teammates know the same info/details as we do. So here’s your chance to drop that obvious tip/info to the community!
I’ll start: the spawn room heals you at 400HP/second and you cannot take damage in there.
You should always take your healer’s juice if they’re available to charge their ult, but if you’re a rampaging ball, a staggered hero being camped/targeted, or if your healers are dead/gassed/out of place, the spawn is your friend.
And for the love of god, when you’re attacking on Blizzard World and just captured the second point, use the spawn to force the other team back. Especially at lower ranks (raises hand), people fight just outside the spawn rather than use it as a free immortality position.
UPDATE: Thanks for sharing your tips/insight! A lot of folks gave solid info that might legitimately help players. To that end, I’ll be reviewing, vetting and organizing the info to put into a formatted/clear post later this week so folks can more easily access the info that may help them. Cheers!
UPDATE: Clarifying that this happened in Canada, NOT the US for those implying that it did.
I dined in at a local Chinese restaurant with a friend. Great food, but almost no interactions were made with any of the waitresses other than being given the food, as you had to reserve your table position online in advance, as well as place your order online once finally seated (due to COVID safety measures).
The bill came out to be just about $30, and I tipped just a little above 15%, giving $5. Our waitress took the bill from our table, paid for in cash, and as we were readying to get up and leave, she returned with the $5 bill we left to cover the tip and in a passive aggressive tone saying, "Was something wrong with the food? Where's the rest of the tip?".
I didn't appreciate that we were even approached at all, and I was shocked and confused that an interaction as such even happened, as I recall it being the very first time I was confronted for not tipping enough, as my usual 15% tip suffices in past restaurant experiences.
In an act of frustration, I took back the $5 I left as a tip from the bill and walked out of the restaurant with my friend without saying a word, despite the waitress trying to get our attention as we walked away.
In the moment, we both agreed that it was an insane thing for the waitress to do, acting as if we didn't tip at all. The waitress that had confronted us had been someone we had close to almost no contact with the entire time, as she had only been to our table once to give our food, as I had stated above.
But reflecting on it, we were wondering what should've been done in that situation. Ignore her request to tip more and leave the $5 bill as it was or give a larger tip as she asked just to get the situation over with?
I'd love to hear more opinions, and if a situation like this has ever happened to you. AITA for taking back my tip?
TL;DR: I was confronted by a waitress who returned to me with the tip I had already gave, complaining that it was not enough. As a reaction to the situation, I frustratingly took back the $5 bill and walked out without saying a word.
EDIT: A few people have pointed out the fact that because I pointed out that "I had almost no interactions with the waitress", I come off as "entitled", making it seem like the minimal contact with the waitress was a factor in taking back my tip. Some have also implied that I come off as "entitled" because I wanted a waiter/waitress to come by ever... keep reading on reddit ➡
Clean your soft mousepad / desk pad with a lint roller.
This weapon allows you to cover all shields without swapping weapons, as well as be decent for ranged damage. I highly recommend it, especially if you have slower load times and cannot swap mid-encounter.
Of course I see all the posts for purchasing, building and getting software started up. But I'm curious what everybody does to keep their PC maintained.
I continuously feel like I'm lazy with my PC. Dust the outside of the case and filters every now and then, but rarely if ever actually open the case to clean it out. Antibacterial handiwipes by the computer to keep grease and such off my peripherals. Maybe once a year I'll pop the keys off my mechanical keyboard for a thorough cleaning.
Is there anything else important us casuals might not know about? Or any tips and tricks to keep things tidy?
Being kind and supportive is very important, so that you're not interrupting or being a cringey dick. But there are also things in between these extremes you could do to make gaming better for everyone:
