The Texture Of Things

Reader Poll: Tipping

April 23rd, 2007

So the roofers just left, but before they did, the crew leader came in and chatted me up for a while. It wasn’t overly strained conversation, but later I thought it was odd. Why all the chatting? Was he killing time, waiting for me to get it together and tip him already?

Looking toward the future, should I be prepared to tip the guy who removes the ice-storm tree?

Last, if one of my students is a pizza store manager who is bringing pizza to tonight’s class (we’re watching a movie) but will not take any money for the food, how do I figure his tip? I have an idea I’ll just get him a gift card to a bookstore or something, but sheesh.

No wait, one more. How does one figure the kickback tip for a nomination for a Thinking Blogger Award*?

*Mad props, KLee, but seriously. Now I have to start thinking about who to nominate, and thinking is hard. And stuff.

    Just wanted to pass around the anxiety a bit, you know. It WAS hard, but I meant every word. This isn’t something that you HAVE to participate in. I just wanted you to know that you were loved and appreciated. Everyone could use a little more of that every now and then. 🙂

    Smoochies, but don’t stress yourself.
