Sometimes it seems like folks who take their tips off to tip in cash are more about "look at me and how much money I am giving you."
And that is not what tipping is all about...
tipping is to commend a worker for a good job, not to gain personal recognition for the giver.
Unfortunately, there are workers that folks never see that get a portion of these tips. And it is sad to exclude them.
The workers are happy with this system......(as long as the bus riders dont' come along and stiff them)...that is good enough for me.
