There were some great comments left by readers on my recent post about tipping etiquette for take out food, and it really got me thinking that maybe I should expand my tipping horizons. I was recently in a Cold Stone Creamery getting a Very Vanilla Shake (the most delicious ice cream treat ever created), and was served by a very friendly young lady. She also happened to make my shake in record time. So, when she handed me the signature form for my debit card transaction, I wrote in a $2 tip for my $4.50 shake. As I walked away from the counter towards the door, I heard her exclaim, “Thanks SO MUCH for the tip!” I turned around to see the hugest smile I’ve ever seen plastered across her face. I smiled back and walked out the door. Will she be ever working again when I come in to get my shake, and will it make a difference in the service I get? Maybe, maybe not. But she did a great job, AND the reaction from giving the tip was well worth the $2.
The whole experience put me in a good mood. Maybe you can get a little mood lift from my favorite posts of the week. Here we go…..
