I'm seeing a lot of this on twitter lately...

Can't verify but look to be legit

Server: BRANDON lol

I wonder if a discount will be applied when (if) inflation subsides?

I noticed a lot of local places are charging for credit card use. so I pay cash
That’s been going on for a long time and it’s usually Asian operated Qwiki Marts

Someone told me it’s either illegal or violates card issuer t&c’s meaning it shouldn’t be happening 🤷‍♂️

No. it’s not illegal. but It is bullshit. and I’m talking about restaurants here in Aspen. not the places where you get lunch

see above
saw a tip jar at the auto parts store. It was full of crap from peoples pockets, paper clips, pens, wing nuts etc, no cash or coins for sure. I thought it was a joke then I noticed one at every register. If I had some lug nuts or something I suppose I would have given them.

as far as the temporary inflation surcharge, I would (write) deduct that from the tip and let the house know thats whats to expect. (I'd probably just give the cash to the server on the side)
