The Art of Tipping

Mar 20, 2015 0

Time Is Money 1

Sometimes, it feels good to leave a great tip. Perhaps, you let your awesome waitress know that she did a great job or perhaps you choose to leave a huge anonymous tip for your attentive waiter. No matter, we, at GoodNews Notebook, hope you left a good tip. Is there a science or an Art to Tipping properly. We would like to think so.


Please Mind To Tipping

A social psychologist Deborah Serani of Long Island, New York, reported, “People with cash to burn see a “pay it forward” case on the news and realize they can also help.”

“There is a social contagion factor to this generous kind of behavior, but I think it goes way deeper than that,” Serani said. “On an evolutionary level, generosity has been a key to the survival of the species. What this does is it allows those who are struggling to have some success and as a result we are all better for it.”

Huge tips are also sometimes seen as easy charity and a “quick and powerful way to give,” Serani said.

Random acts of kindness, like paying for the car behind you in a fast food drive-thru line, are common after tragedies, she added.

“There is such struggle and tragedy in our days – I just saw another shooting happen. What this does is give people the ability to do something of impact,” Serani said. “From tragedy comes urges to be generous and helpful.”

And the good feeling works both ways, as both parties experience a “high return.”

In other words, the person leaving a huge tip feels just as good as the person who receives it, Serani said.

Many real-life Peter Pans, like the man behind Hidden Cash and the big tipper who stamped “Tips for Jesus” on his receipts, chose to remain anonymous.

“Gift” for Being Grateful

Sep 22, 2014

By Connie Alsobrook

gnn grateful

Are you grateful for the meal you just ate?  How did you show your appreciation? Well at Mary’s Gourmet Diner (MGD), she observes customers that show appreciation for their meal.  This sounds like a quick and simple task, but believe or not everyone does not do it. This may be the reason MGD gives a gift for showing you are grateful for the food you are about to receive.

On MGD twitter page, she gives a brief explanation for her restaurants GIFT.  “There’s a lot of craziness going on in regard to the 15% discount. I will not respond to all the posts. I will say that it is not a ‘policy.’  It’s a gift we give at random to customers who take a moment before their meal. This could be prayer or just a moment to breathe & push the busyness of the world away. Who you talk to or meditate on etc. is your business. I have lived in a 3rd world country, there are people starving.


We live in a country with an abundance of beautiful food. I NEVER take that for granted. It warms my heart to see people with an attitude of gratitude. Prayer, meditation or just breathing while being grateful opens the heart chakra.  It’s good for everyone!!! Thanks to my local community for your support…you know who I am.  As for all the people posting negative coents about me and my restaurant who have never met me or been to the restaurant, thanks for sharing, it’s your right to speak out, just as it is mine. Peace,love & happy eating!!!
