Do you tip? Many people and those that do, think that everyone should do it. Tipping should be a personal choice and for not tipping, you should not be looked down upon. Whether you tip or not, is not really the matter, it is the aftermath, like this story.
People take the waitress, the bartender, or pizza delivery job to put themselves through school or to help pay the bills. In Oregon, a pizza delivery driver received a 33 cent tip on an order that was $22.67. Now, most people would react, argue and think that the .33 cents was absolutely nothing. But the man turned a negative into a positive.
He did this by appreciating the tip and being grateful that it would help him get through school because 2/3 of his paycheck is relying on tip money. The next day when the man went into work, he was given a note that was left by the couple that gave him the .33 cent tip. The note simply stated, “To the driver who delivered our pizza last night around 9 p.m. – A thank you note.” Inside was the remainder of what they should have originally left for him.
Like most people, the couple did feel bad about forgetting the tip and were able to make the situation right to the best of their knowledge. It is people like this, that we need to thank for having in the world to remind that times are tough for everyone. However, doing the right thing in the end is truly worth it and a simple thank you note is something that is very appreciative.
