Tip Big!!

Just a suggestion for some voluntary wealth distribution, but when you are able to go out and about, throw in a little extra money in tips or what not for the workers and the business owners.

A couple of weeks ago, I had a plumber come by to replace a cutoff valve on one of the toilets. Young guy came out, replaced the valve, I paid him with a credit card for the job and gave him a hundred dollars cash.

My wife stopped by on of our favorite restaurants the other day for pickup and dropped a hundred bucks cash for the few employees still working there.

I stopped by our favorite calzone place the other day and picked up a calzone. They didn’t have a way to to leave a tip on the POS system they used, I didn’t have any cash on my so I had them ring up an order for 5 more calzones but not make them.

Also, as much as you can, do business with the small locally owned businesses in your area. You might have a pay a few dollars more than the big box stores and online, but the money you spend at locally owned businesses stays in your community.

Just little things to extend a hand when you can to help those around us.

If I may quote President Kennedy here:

“Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country”.

Wow. Hear hear! Good on ya. Been doing similar to the lesser extent that I can.

i’m not knocking generosity, but maybe even better to give money to those that can’t actually earn at the moment rather than giving extra to those that can

You’re a good man Charles. I always tip pretty generously (unless the service is really lousy and then I probably won’t come back). One of the things I do when I get my groceries is donate to ‘feed poor families’ or whatever it’s called, it is an option when you check you on your pinpad. And I used to donate to things like cancer foundation etc. all the time. For me it’s a small out of pocket amount of money but all the little things add up. And I tried to be extra kind to the people still working at the grocery store.

I agree.

I guess I’m supposed to get one of those stimulus checks they’re talking about. If I do, I’ll be giving it to our local food bank. I’m by no means rich, but there are people here who need that money more than I do.

nice work.

i’ve been reading a lot about those recently, it took me a while to realise what it was about - Americans and their crazy phonetic spelling, it just looks so wrong to me :grinning:
