Definition: Give (someone) a sum of money as a way of rewarding them for their services: "I tipped her five dollars"; "that sort of person never tips".
When did tipping become mandatory? I still try to reserve tips for good service, but it's becoming harder all the time. Not only is it so expected, but a lot of places take it upon themselves to include a tip it without even asking. So, without knowing, a lot of people end up tipping on top of an already included gratuity.
When an organization gives you instructions on how much to tip each person that interacts with you (cruise ships are notorious for this) they are basically saying "we don't pay our employees enough, so please help top up their salary." Instead of tipping because the service was good.
Then there's the gray area of tipping. Take a self employed hairdresser. Is it expected or even acceptable to tip the owner of a company? Where do we draw the line or read the manual of tipping etiquette?
In the new world, employers will pay service industry employees a fair wage and tips will actually be an acknowledgment of good service.
AND SO IT SHALL BE WRITTEN!
