Taking it to the Street

How much do you usually tip?
“I always leave 20 percent or more, because people in the service industry get such bad pay.” ~ Caitlin MacQueen, Beacon “Twenty percent. I have not left a tip when I was short on money, but I made up for it the next time.” ~ Ewan MacQueen, Beacon “I tip 20, or 25 if service is really good. It’s what you have to do.” ~ Rachel Plihcik, Beacon
