Tips—I didn't really mean this kind of tip, but that works too. Only get the best quality tips from Pete & Jay! But what I really meant was the sort of tip you give a waitperson.

These people are trying to earn a living, too, and they're counting on 15 percent. If the person is slow and gives unimpressive service, start there. If she gives great service and slips you her phone number, go at least to 20. This is absolutely essential if you obviously pray before your meal—Christians have a notoriously bad witness through their miserly tipping.
