When I first started going to my current deli there actually wasn’t a tip jar in front of the grill area. I think in the past few months one was added. It was a jar wrapped in paper with no markings on it. Just recently they wrote “TIPS” on it because I guess people didn’t realize it was for tips.

The question is, how much do you give to the two guys who for nearly a year remember your order without even a word from your lips? On top of that they do it with a smile like they’re actually happy to see that you came in again that morning.
