On Who do you give holiday tips or bonuses to?

Teachers, hair dresser, child care provider

However, this may make me the grinch.. but I'm tired of everyone "expecting" holiday tips.. or just tips in general! Why does the burrito makers at Chipotle think they need a tip? There are even drive-thrus with tip cups in the window now. It's not up to us as consumers to make up for their low wages. We pay for a product. I will always tip my full-service restaurant servers, but sorry burrito dude.. you're SOL from this grinch!

I give my employees Christmas bonuses every year. What people in business need to remember is - you are only as good as your people will allow you to be. I have a first class bunch.

I gave a bonus to my daycare providers - because my job gave me one and I couldn't do it without them. I will also give them gifts because they are my friends. I tend to tip extra when we go out to eat this time of year.

I have "SEE ID" on the back of my credit card instead of my signature. Rarely does anyone ask to see it. When they do, it's an automatic extra 10% over the 15 to 20 I normally leave at restaurants.

I'd like to give a tip to the LJWorld, so here goes: the LJWorld should not shut down constructive dialog on the story of the slaughter of children by an armed and troubled young man. Only through open dialogue and honest discussion can change take place that may help limit such horrors in the future.

So my tip to the LJWorld is that the new moderator not stick his head in the sand on this issue and allow rational discussion to take place. Otherwise, the LJWorld is one of the few newspapers in the nation that appears to want to pretend that the shooting of children never happened.

I used to tip the mail carrier. But then we got a new one who is not so great...

Here's a tip. Get a flu shot if you haven't done so. It's spreading like wildfire in a droughted pine forest.

I understand the concern for certain sensitivities but zero discussion on a few important issues of our current environment is not healthy. If it gets out of hand..push the button by all means...place a heavy thumb on the inconsiderate...but lets not jump to pure censure immediately.

Tip for the Yuletide Derby coming up on the 24th: Bet Santa across the board. Win, place AND show. The fix is in.
