The Question Club
Earlier this week, I brought up the topic of tipping. Everybody assumed I just meant the food serving industry, but I meant all tipping in general. Who do you, and I mean you as the person bearing your journalname, do you tip if service is adequate?
AAA guy or the fellow who tows my car
Subway sandwich worker who just made your sandwich
I see no reason to tip
Things that I would take into consideration for each tipping situation that would make me tip more. Sure, every person who serves us in some capacity should have all of these traits, but what do you in particular look for?
Patience as I explained things
Respect, or using 'sir' or 'ma'am' a lot
Personality. They're entertaining or personable
Ethnicity (they're the same race as me)
They get the requisite 15% or whatever, regardless of any other considerations
You have a choice. Serve 5 years in prison, starting next year, or serve 10 years in prison, starting at the age of 60. Which do you choose?
5 years starting next year
10 years starting at 60
Speaking of old age. I've asked before if you'd be willing to lose the use of your leg for considerable wealth, or the ability to properly achieve orgasm for considerable wealth, and both times, the vast majority of you said no. Here's the latest offer. Would you be willing to cut your life expectancy short by 5 years (off the back end of your life) in exchange for considerable wealth now?
