More on joys of tipping
We shared an essay about the joys of tipping the other day. A few responses:
From Jerry Folk: “I like to over-tip, because I feel it’s better to give extra $ to someone working rather than a handout to those who aren’t.”
From Ann Combs: “I have been a ‘20%’ tipper starting from my days as a waitress. At times I have gone over, just because I can, and I felt they deserved it. My husband and I started a ritual where we each decide who will get our ‘before Christmas’ surprise. When we go out to dinner, we each pick out a waiter/waitress to receive our random $100 tip.”
Another reader writes, “I have observed the kindness and compassion that servers have exhibited to my extremely elderly parents and also to my very messy grandchildren . ... It pleases me to slip a little extra into their pockets to let them know that I have observed, recognized and appreciate their kindness.
