That Cari would take the time to thank me for what I did not think was an overly generous tip, at first, broke my heart. I talk to the housekeepers, the cabbies and the service sector people as I travel this country. I love their life stories, their destination stories and their dedication. I hate when I hear that roughly half of their customers don't tip.
Especially housekeepers. I was simply shocked when I read this string of comments to a question regarding tipping in hotels.
Then I thought...y'know, maybe Cari's just nice like that. She doesn't get a lot of tips and just wanted to say thanks because I did. And, that made me smile.
But, it also made me crop the top of the note in the image above. I know that time is money and successful hotels (as it is with Southwest Airlines) find profit in how fast they can turn their product. Like my concern about an amazing waiter earlier this year, I so don't want Cari to get in trouble.
While I so want to tell her Manager how impressed I was.
