Growing up my dad always left a tip and told me the word meant to "To Insure Prompt Service", but after reading the wiki page on Tips, I stand corrected.
With my new job, I get tips. They can range from alright to really good. (although really good normally happens when there is an error)
My highest tip so far is 21.00 on one order. Which was during a crazy busy night, and two gentlemen were arguing over who got the honor of paying the bill. So I solved it by splitting the bill for them, (which was about about $72 each) and they each gave me a tip. My second highest tip was my first night and I learned that wearing my dress coat and smelling good gets $15 tips.
When the weather is nasty outside the tips tend to be higher, and possibly when I'm not wearing my glasses. (I am still experminting with this theory)
When I am driving my own car I get paid per delivery also, so when I don't get a tip from the customer, my fuel is still covered.
This is an interesting read on tipping.
I'm writing this post mostly for feedback.
- Do you tip?
- What and why do you tip?
- When wouldn't you tip?
