Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

When you go to places like Starbucks or Jamba Juice, do you leave money in the tip jar?

I’ve always seen these tips jars but never thought anything about it. However, last week Girlie Girl and I were at Jamba Juice and she asked what it was for. After explaining the concept to her, she asked if she could leave money in there since the lady was so nice to us. Since then, I’ve been tipping. :-)

    Sometimes I do. We just went to Wisconsin dells last weekend, and every single place had one of those jars {yes even fast food}, so I didn’t tip half of them just because they charge so much more than usual the way it is. But when it comes to sit down restaurants and other places, I usually tip pretty well.

    usually not. but i hate carrying 10 pounds of change around in my purse… so if it’s getting particularly heavy, i throw the coins in the jar

    Yes, I do actually! Even though Starbucks costs a pretty penny, I love it and think a tip for the workers just shows I appreciate what they do for me.

    Not typically unless the guy/gal has been really great. But I might rethink this. : )

    Aloha! I try to leave money–but alot of times I am using my debit card…so that’s weird and I just leave. I do feel a bit badly though

    Nope! As a business owner’s wife, I know that the employees are being paid very well to stick coffee and cream in a blender. If one of the employees were to gout of their way for me in some way, I would tip them directly.

    Sometimes, but rarely. I put my change in the Starbucks tip jar every now and then.

    It depends on the service, if they are nice I leave a tip.

    Always, always, always tip . . . but for me it’s usually Dunkin’ Donuts for coffee! I always leave the change, but usually throw in a one $ bill as well. They always remember me, as I go to the same place, and they know my voice as soon as I get in line for the drive-up and always take good care of me. They deserve it! I appreciate their service.

    While I understand the theory behind a tip jar, I really don’t like to use them I usually hand my tip to the person who helped me. Some have actually thrown the money into the jar; some understand to keep it especially when I say.”It’s for you”.

    Good service gets a tip. That’s the whole point in my mind. If your crap and rude I’ll leave a penny as a symbol of my dissatisfaction. If I’m happy and plan on goin back then I’m leaving a good tip.

    I have a niece that works at Starbucks and told me they don’t get paid well at all and are really appreciative of the tips. They share the tips, so I try to leave one even if I’m not particularly pleased with the person waiting on me since the ones in the background get the tips too.

    Things have been crazy here, but I hope to get back to playing regularly this next week.

    No! It’s been interesting reading the comments, though – maybe I’ll change my mind!

    I don’t normally go to places like that (we live very far away from them!) but sometimes I leave tips and sometimes not…just depends on how much money I have left over.

    Why is Mr. Linky closed? I was going to post mine on there, but it’s closed. Kinda bummed!

    Happy Friday!
