Todays Gripe...Tip Jars



okay, here is something that drives me crazy!! Tip jars...it seems like everyone has them today. I scooped some ice cream for you ~ give me a tip. I made your coffee drink wrong ~ give me a tip. I put your to go lunch order in the computer ~ give me a tip. Ugh!!! Should I put one on my desk? I collected your insurance premium ~ give me a tip. Should I put one at the house? I cleaned up your messes ~ give me a tip??? (Well I guess I sort of have one by the laundry :) because I always make a little extra with money falling out of pockets.) And then how many of you feel guilted about it and give the people a tip even though they didn't do anything above & beyond, they just did their job??? Oh and another thing is now when you pay with a debit/credit card they have a tip place like on every receipt everywhere. I swear last week I didn't put a tip on the slip when I was just ordering my lunch and when I got my lunch it was ice cold ~ coincidence or no? You decide

Oh, I totally hear ya!! I'm waiting to go to teacher confrence and see a tip jar there, or a note from my garbage man or mail man. Geesh, people are already getting paid an hourly wage, I mean like when you go to get your haircut, how much or do you tip? Escpcially if they are doing it out of their home or your paying through the nose holes!! I'm with you-ban the stinkin tip jars and do what your getting paid for.
Enough said, I will get off my soap box and hope for a tip while doing the laundry. Heck the other day I made two whole dollars. Squeeky clean, crisp one dollar bills!

I'm with you on that one! I am thinking at the end of the swimming session next week I am going to stand there with a little box that says "tips"
