Interesting comment I heard today I thought. Basically, while giving people tips is a pretty common thing to do for various services, one person was saying how he couldnâ€™t believe that people still gave tips even if it meant that they were going over budget for the purchases. Hence, they are hurting themselves financially. I guess an example would be at a restaurant. Say your budget was only $5 for a meal. Sure enough, the meal itself is $5 with tax, but including a tip would mean you are going over budget. Does it make sense to do it in that case still?
Itâ€™s kind of interesting to think about as many people say you must give tips to people as they apparently donâ€™t earn much and so this is supposed to cover that. Yet when you think about it, if you truly do have your own budget then it would make sense to always look out for yourself first in many ways. You can use this example in many other cases too such as having to take the taxi and having a certain budget that you must stick with. Just the thought and notion of not providing a decent tip would bring out so much negative talk about yourself and so most people would rather go into debt than not over spend.
