Hip2Save This Holiday Guest Post submitted by reader, Cheryl:
We are probably a family that is more needy than usual when we eat out. Our servers typically have to come back more than once because of water spilling or having to give us extra forks (which were dropped twice or thrice) before our food has come out. We definitely have extra requests during our dinners out because we have toddlers.
This Christmas, we wanted to do something extra for those extra moments the restaurant staff gave us. We have gotten numerous Target Gift Cards from the deals we have scored, thanks to deals you have posted. Since most of the deals we scored were awesome already, we decided to pool these gift cards and create little “tip gift” which we give the servers when we eat out!
As soon as we get the bill, we place the little “tip gift” inside the bill folder (on top of the typical tip we give them of course!) with a note of thank you, and we watch how our servers (who are often more exhausted than usual during a busy day!) light up seeing a little something for them when they come to clear our tables. It is so simple and yet we walk away feeling more blessed having had a chance to say thank you to the wait staff who make families have mealtime relief!
