Now That Is A Good Idea
Barron Barnett came up with a great variation on the two dollar bill idea that I think works:
Shove the 2 dollar bill in the tip jar. There will be 0 complaint for that. I can understand being annoyed if you were needing change. Taking their few remaining 1′s and giving them 2 dollar bills would be a PITFA.
Putting a 2 dollar bill in the tip jar and telling the Barista why would go a LONG way in putting a smile on their face.
Now why didn’t I think of that? I’ve run a till and I should have remembered how much of a pain those two dollar bills are. I’m definitely going with the $2 tip idea when I go to Starbucks.
