  • Favorite christmas tip so far!

    I just got a $40 gift card to a day spa today! This is a great customer, gets an add-on, comes every 4 weeks religiously, but doesn't tip normally. Well, today I got my christmas tip and wohoo!!! I was just thinking the other day how badly I wanted a massage and hadn't had one (professional anyway) in years. I usually spend cash on things for the dogs or things we need around the house, so when I get a gift card it forces me to spend it on me. What a great gift!!!!!!!

    What a wonderful gift. Doesn't it make you happy to know you are appreciated? After the holiday rush go make an appointment for your massage. You'll feel like million bucks.

                All those gifts sound so nice.

                I'm going to cry my pity party again. :'( People here just don't do that. I AM trying to stimulate them though. I have a tip jar.... I have put up fake Christmas cards (so they would think that other customers are doing it so they should too) and I have even a few fake gifts wrapped up. So far ..... NOTHING! Not even a two euro tip.

                I know it's early. I do have a really good (new) customer coming the week of Christmas who forgot her tip money last grooming and promised extra next grooming. She seems like she may be the type to give more for Christmas. Fingers crossed.

                It's not like I am greedy... I just want to feel appreciated. Just a Christmas card is nice.

                  I got my first-ever "Christmas tip" from a customer this week. I've been doing her dog for 2 years now, a sweet, wiggly, total PITA bichon whom I love to death. She has never tipped me so far. This year, she proudly presented me with an envelope, a hug, and a whispered, "this is for you for all your hard work!". I couldnt wait to get out to the truck to see what was inside....

                  ....a $2 off coupon for Papa Murphy's Pizza. I dont think Ill ever use it cuz I hate their pizza, but Im definitely gonna keep it cuz it makes me giggle!

                    WOW!!! What generosity!!! (snicker, snicker) ....gifting you a $2 coupon she got for free - thats just tacky! I can see someone offering you a coupon if they dont want it, but to act like its a gift......it really is so tacky that its amusing.

                      Wow, you have a better attitude about that than I would have. It seems pretty insulting, especially since she hasn't tipped you in 2 years. But maybe you know her well enough...was she just joking around?

                        Oddly enough, she wasnt joking. But she's been a loyal and steady customer for a long time, is always very appreciative of what I do, and is friendly and pleasant. I think that there are people out there who are truly clueless when it comes to that type of thing. Plus, she's not too tightly wrapped to being with...it was just so FUNNY, though!

                          That's true...I guess if she's usually nice and really had no clue how weird it was, then maybe it's not so bad. Some people just don't think these things through. :P

                            I have a regular

                            customer of 5 years that always tips with food or drinks. She brings a coffee beverage from DQ or candy or weird diet bars from her latest diet (I always wonder if that is a hint) chuckle chuckle. She is just a sweet elderly lady from England. I figure it must be cultural.

                              You do put seed money in the tip jar, don't you? Nobody puts money in an empty jar; I always start it out with a 5 and 4 ones in the morning.
