I remember those "tip jars" and I always ignored them.

Can see the latter *maybe*, but for the rest of it since I did all the work myself, what exactly am I supposed to be giving someone a tip for? Handing me a paper towel? Well if you didn't hide or otherwise commandeer the supply, and thus forcing me to ask there wouldn't be a need now where there?
Agreed!

Those people also keep things tidy and the paper towels stocked, etc.. but I am always really creeped out by someone just hanging out in the bathroom. Can you imagine having that job? what a hellish existence

They shouldn't have those people at all, and I don't tip them. I feel bad about it but I'm just not going to encourage that type of behavior, sorry

"Cromulent."
Isn't that the tendency to depose British kings?
