Okay for most of us I guess this goes without saying, give a gratuity tip, but then again… sometimes it’s better to just say the words because some of us just don’t know, don’t remember, or don’t want to give it up. I believe we have all received services whether it be from a cab, hotel, or restaurant in which the service is so poor you’re wondering if they should be paying you for having to experience it, or better yet instead of leaving a tip of monetary means you’re asking yourself if you should leave a list of tips that would aid in better service. Then there are times when you visit a restaurant and the staff exemplifies excellent service from the greeter to the busboy and you want to put a tip in the hands of everyone after standing and giving a heartfelt speech of course on how you felt so catered to and all your needs were met without even having to ask ( lol…you know I’m kidding right). For me personally good service at times has encouraged me to give much more than the percentage of gratuity required and in addition to that I make sure to let both the waiter/waitress and if possible the manager know how I appreciate such good service. In this gratitude challenge we can stop and think about how tipping is an awesome way to show how grateful you are to the service staff by rewarding them for a job well done.
Your Task: Give a Gratuity Tip
If you normally leave a tip go ahead and challenge yourself to leave a bigger tip to any service staff you encounter who gives you good service.
If you are not planning to engage in any services today perhaps you will be receiving some type of services in the next couple of days and can report back on this task before the challenge is over.
