23. Pulling money out of the tip jar?!?!?!?!
That's really low....

My grande skinny mocha with whip costs me $4.31 at my favorite shop, and I typically leave a buck tip plus the change from a $5 note for them. Since I only indulge a couple times per week, 6 bucks per doesn't really bother me. The only time I don't end up tipping is when I don't have cash and have to use my debit card- I WOULD tip on the card, but they don't give me the option (just hand me the receipt). I've received various answers as to whether they can add a buck to my total so I don't truly know if that's an option or not. So I try to have the cash on hand.

Peace to you, mighty Barista!!!
