Tipping point

I find tipping difficult. People in Finland or Sweden don’t generally give tips, I would say, so I’m not used to that at all, it’s not something my brain is wired to do.

I also find it hard to tip when you have to do it with coins. How do you make that an event, how do you not make it feel like you’re handing out candy money to little kids? I have no idea. Leaving a couple of dollar bills on the table feels fine, leaving a two-dollar coin feels .. like a statement.

Last night, I went out with a friend, and I saw people buying a 57-kronor pint of beer, and leaving three kronor as a tip. Is that anything? (Obviously, I didn’t tip at all).

One thought on “Tipping point

  1. It’s not a statement to leave the change. It’s just what you do, and it’s better than nothing. At least, that’s what I think.

How does that make you feel?
