Tipping with pennies? Not to be ungrateful, but that's tacky.
I hate when people want to tip 10%, or 20% but insist on calculating it out to the cent and can't deal with rounding up to the nearest dollar . I have seen people actually getting out pennies! Like when Rachael Ray orders a huge meal with drinks on her show "$40 a day," receives perfect, perky, prompt service, and then leaves a $0.30 tip! Qu'est-ce que c'est?!
personally, i'd rather get the pennies than have them round down.
True. One time someone tipped me with a $0.35 postage stamp on a huge corporate lunch order. It was so weird.

i've been tipped with condoms, on several occasions--it was the 90s and safe sex was all the rage. of course i didn't ever use them b/c you never know what kind of sicko is going to poke holes through them.
Actually...leaving a penny is an old fashioned way of complementing your server. (accompanied by a substantial tip of course)
It's money! Why are you complaining?
The government taxes servers on 8% of their food sales, assuming they will be receiving at least that much in tip. Also, in many states, servers only receive a wage of $2.13 or so an hour, because the government assumes their tips will make up for it. If you can't afford to tip, then go to McDonald's.

if you're not making minimum wage with your hourly wage + tips then the owner or manager of the restaurant should up your wages. It is your responsibility to stand up for yourself by either asking for a raise or notifying your states' workforce commission. ALSO if you don't like the tips, don't do the job. One last thing: I've NEVER met a server, bartender, barista, delivery driver that claimed all their tips.
