Tip in Hand
After looking reading though the discussion thread from the last post I noticed that some people find that actually having to physically hand a tip to a worker is a stressful experience. Why is that? Why is handing a tip to a bellhop, valet, baggage handler, taxi driver or bathroom attendant different from tipping a waiter on a bill?
If it makes you uncomfortable, why? Is it because you might be caught without cash in your pockets? (A very common NYC thing!) Is there some kind of social status thing in play that gives you the hebbie jibbies? Does it embarrass you to press a bill into someone’s hand? I find this fascinating. Look forward to your comments.
