Tipping: On The Receiving End Etiquette

Danimal n Hustler | May 28, 2007 12:39 PM

I have a part-time job at a local mom n' pop joint where I work at the register and there's a tip jar right where the register is.

My question is... when someone puts a tip in there, do I say thanks, smile back, ignore them, or what? The reason why I find this sorta black and white is when I tip like that I've never heard a thanks and the workers just kinda stay silent and that seems to be the general consensus, BUT at casinos the dealer always says thanks when they get tipped and seem very gracious.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
