Are you habituated to paying tips?We all pay tips in different situations. It may be to the driver of the cab who drove in a difficult congested road to let you reach the railway station or airport, it may be to the waiter in a restaurant, it may also be the delivery boy who delivered you the consignment you are waiting for and the list can be a bit long. While tips can be said as a form of reward that you pay to the person for some service, there is a notion among people that the persons whom they pay tips involved in jobs that are not well paid. In some cases, it is absolutely correct and to those persons, the tips from the customers are quite beneficial.
There are a few people habituated to pay tips to anybody providing a service and at times the service provider to whom the tips are offered may refuse or feel offended too. I remember one such instance when I went to the office of one of my associates who offered to pay some tips to the person who came to repair an instrument that was under its warranty period. The person politely refused by saying he is the owner of the company and he does not require any tips. So, if you are habituated to pay tips to any kind of service provider think for a while before offering any tips.
