    Interesting topic, I guess, though you should have included the fact that O'Connor asked the party in question if they planned on tipping, to which they still declined to tip. As he notes in his article: "I asked some of the group as they were picking up their orders if they had intended to not tip. They hemmed and hawed and walked away." This complicates the question of whether or not they thought they were supposed to tip, as a food truck worker implied to them that they should tip. It doesn't render the point of this article moot, but I do think that point deserved acknowledgement. Also, what exactly do you mean with "O'Connor wrote on The Awl about the experience, then took to Twitter for some tip-shaming"? He very clearly tip-shamed before the wrote about it at The Awl...

    Interesting article, I guess, though it declines to mention that O'Connor asked the customers if they intended to tip, so it's not that they had no idea they should be tipping. As he notes in his article: "I asked some of the group as they were picking up their orders if they had intended to not tip. They hemmed and hawed and walked away." I can't really think of a situation in which a worker would request a tip, or make it clear that they should be given a tip, and the customer's refusal to tip would be due to anything but their own rudeness. It doesn't render this article moot, but it certainly deserved mentioning. Also, what do you mean when you write "O'Connor wrote on The Awl about the experience, then took to Twitter for some tip-shaming"? He very clearly tip-shamed before he wrote about it at The Awl, not after.
