It seems like we're being asked to tip everywhere. An etiquette expert on modern gratuity rules

Technology has changed the way we tip today and where we’re asked to do it.

Instead of leaving 15% at a restaurant, it sometimes feels like we’re being asked to select a tip amount from an iPad screen — 15, 20 or 25% — just about everywhere. 

The Show spoke with Lizzie Post, co-president of the Emily Post Institute, who said that there's good and bad to the new way tipping is presented. Post is also the great-great-granddaughter of Emily Post, the forebearer of American etiquette.
