13 October 2009 Cash Tips
Tonight I waited a table of vacationing Californians for the second consecutive night. They were extremely pleasant folks, Americans exploring America at the dawn of their “Golden Years” together. Most-important to professional me, they were good tippers.
They paid with plastic but tipped in cash. The American waiter prefers a cash tip. This much, the husband already knew. As they left, he handed me eight dollars, saying, “Now, this is for you. I don’t tip for the government.”
