@dd3420 But did you only earn $2.13/hour as a gas station attendant when the federal minimum wage was $7.25?

For the author of the original article - I'm sure the waitress refilled her water each time she refilled the soda. No less work for the waitress than the friend who ordered soda.
The author must be lucky and have never had to work in food service or she would realize that that a portion of that $1.52 probably also goes towards tipping out the restaurant (for the busboy, etc). With the wage of waitstaff at less than $3/hour, I would never begrudge them $ 0.48. If you are that concerned about 48 cents, you probably should not be eating out. Taking into account the time I spend at a table eating and the attention I get, I would never tip below $2.00.
