“Tipping isn’t a city in China.” “If you fear change, leave it in the tip jar.” “Tipping … not just for cows.” You’ve probably chuckled at the punny signs decorating counter-top tip jars asking customers to dole out a little more than sticker price, and it’s easy to feel good by tossing in the post-transaction change.
