Well said! Above and beyond are the key words. I for one, do not understand what all the wringing of hands is for in relation to tipping. I do not want to come across as elitist, but if the tip protocol is such a financial burden, perhaps a lesser mode of transport and entertainment would be more appropriate. Greyhound does not have any tipping policy in place and you need not bother with a tuxedo, sports coat , tie or cordial greeting. However they would also prefer you wear a shirt with sleeves as a male passenger and refrain from loud discussion over your cell phone/walkie talkie and keep your children from running amok in the aisle.
Many would reconsider their disregard for rewarding outstanding service if they remember holiday and performance bonuses from their employment and their thoughts when received.
