More on joys of tip­ping

Dayton Daily News - - IDEAS & VOICES - Ron Rollins Ideas & Voices Editor

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.
