An onslaught of tipping requests — with employees often inches away — is increasing social pressure around gratuity and even pushing some consumers to give less.

The big picture: The economic stress of inflation coupled with confusion around who and how much to tip are pushing Americans against the practice: 66% have a negative view about tipping and 32% say they’re annoyed about pre-entered tip screens, a new Bankrate survey says.

“It’s gotten noticeably worse in the past year,” Bankrate senior industry analyst Ted Rossman told Axios.
“We’re being asked to tip more and more places,” said Rossman, who has heard of a doctor’s office asking for a tip and unmanned self-service kiosks at airports.
