    Here we have a San Francisco restaurant with a very interesting, if not tacky, tip protocol that has least a few people flummoxed and slightly appalled: "You're at a small (but popular) restaurant that sells burgers and sausages to go. When you place your order you're told by the abrasive girl at the counter that your wait will be at least 15 minutes. Ten minutes into your wait, she suddenly cries out to everyone present 'Hey, listen up everybody! The tip jar is right here, and if you could make a generous contribution that would be great...dollars only, please!'" [YumSugar]
