How was your Easter celebrations everyone? I spent it on the beach with the family, My Man, and my sister’s friends. It was fun. Prior to the Holy Week, I made sure I scheduled my posts so I do not end up missing any day. I’m trying to give the 30 Days Of Blogging Honesty And One Dare blog event my best shot. 🙂
Day 09 — When the cashier gives me this amount of money for change I know it’s too much money to dump in the charity bucket…
Honestly, there are not many tip jars that I come across with. I don’t know if tip jars are not popular in this side of the world or I just don’t go out much. In some places, I know the charity bucket deserves 10% from the total tab but in cases where I see a tip jar, my measure of how the amount to give depends on the service I received. If it’s great then there is no problem at all. Usually, I’d leave all the loose change or all the small bills I have. It’s no treasure chest but it’s pretty decent. When I’m grateful, I’m grateful. 😀
There is one funny incident with tip giving that I remember too well though. The extended family had an elaborate lunch in a restaurant on the way home from a vacation up north in The Cordilleras. After paying the bill, my aunts and uncles from abroad left a big tip, almost a thousand bucks. When one of my local aunts saw how big it was, she said they should not leave so much or else she’d take the money herself once everyone has walked out the door! 😳 Ack! Now this is sure one way to ruin charity!
