I was recently reminded by a new server at a bodega I frequent, of the tipping jar… no he did not just tell me I have to tip him?
Initially I was looking at him crossed eyed but then I realized he was new and wasn’t familiar with me as a regular patron so I bit my lips.
But to me tipping is very important because this is how many service people make up the difference in their pay scale, plus I think it is nice to receive money like this to do with as you please day to day:
1. Save for a rainy day
2. Holiday club
4. Car payment
5. Pay off loans
6. Buy yourself something special
7. Emergency funds
8. Children’s allowance
Usually what I do is but an amount in the tip jar once every month based on my expenses on my card. So basically I go back on my card and add up how much I’ve spent then do a percentage for tips each month. There have been months where I’ve gone less and others where I’ve done more.
It’s worth it to me to see someone smile in gratitude and also I’ve been blessed exceedingly and will continue to be blessed in so many ways because I give. Simple formula.
Also, it cost zero dollars just to be kind.
Here is a list of people you should tip, and how much…at your discretion.
