Day 09 — When the cashier gives me this amount of money for change I know it’s too much money to dump in the charity bucket…
A friend and I went to this fancy restaurant at Blue Wave. They offer big servings of American Food and by just writing them now, it makes me hungry. We were shocked with the bill, of course. Spending two thousand bucks for a meal really made me feel guilty but my friend told me, that sometimes we should just indulge ourselves. True.
Then she ask me, “Magkano ang ititip natin? (How much are we going to place as tip)?
Confused, I looked at our receipt. I noticed that a 10 per cent service charge was already included on it I informed my friend and she just advise me that we should no longer give any because its already included in our bill.
I then took another look at the restaurant. The environment was cozy, the employees were friendly, the food was scrumptious, and lastly, they have the most comfortable chairs I can ever imagine. So I just told her, “bigyan nalang natin ng 200, nakagastos nga tayo ng 2000 sa pagkain, ipagdadamot pa ba natin? (Let’s just give them 200, we already spend 2000 on food, should we still be greedy?)
We left the restaurant overwhelmingly happy.
So if the change is too much to dump in the charity basket, for sure I will assess first how good the service is. If it is worth it, I will give half of the change. If not, I will give what is worth it.
Sometimes, giving will always be better.
Enjoy your Easter Monday!
