take a tip from me...


got ians hair cut yesterday

at ck out lester said "it'll be $10.00"
so i paid with (what i thought was) a $20...
told the girl to give me five back, then rethought it
and said..."you know what, just give it to lester"

as i approached my car, out flies lester saying
"do you know what you did"
me: oh....(smiles) yeah, i want you to have it,
you"re always so good with ian, we appreciate it.
lester: are you sure?
me: absolutely
lester gives me a big hug goodbye...

flash forward to dinner out with my daughter...
me when the check arrives: i've got it!
i reach in my bag for the $50... that i had..
or er, ummm...yeah...are you getting where this is going..
and i pulled out the lone remaining bill...a $20.00.

thats right folks, i tipped the stylist $40. on a $10. haircut

That part feels good, eh?

It's just money...and like Natalie says, It'll come back to you in spades!
