When we cash in our welfare checks and recieve food stamps for our normal T-bone steak and lobster purchases for the month, we still have enough left for a decent bottle of wine from a very nice liquor retailer.

How do we handle tipping the sommelier in this situation? The normal 20% would really set us back. It's a significant oversight in the program that welfare and food stamps don't allow for tips to be added to food purchases -- it forces people of limited means to "out" themselves when making these sort of purchases, because their minimum wage jobs don't currently provide enough cash for a tip that matches such an item's value.

That's discriminatory, and it's wrong. Hopefully, Congress will address this issue soon.
