Not received any tips yet despite some customers not being seen to until after Christmas now 😭

But to be honest, I'm not expecting anything and a fair few of my customers regularly tip me throughout the year.

I've had some of these customers since my son was born and he's nearly 21 now lol.

Tend to get lots of tips and booze.

Got my first one on Friday. Usually get around 4-500 quid plus plonk.

Last year rather bizarrely, one lady gave me a packet of raisins 🤪

Probably they were initially choclate coated.

That just looks like creeping up to your customers

If your customers are regularly tipping you throughout the year the chances are very high that your prices are too low.....

Heres my xmas card for customers...I've got a stamp which is a lot quicker than manually writing 280 cards out!👍😎

Each to their own, but I personally think it looks like ar5e licking. 
Cards are for friends, family and close neighbours in my opinion

Nope, my prices are a lot more than what they were paying previously 👍  Double what they were paying before in most cases.

I have just  a handful of customer who I know I have undercharged - quite deliberately.

I don’t send any customers a card. Don’t want them feeling obliged to give me a card back and even worse feeling they have to put money in it. I do however buy a gift for one customer. She owns a posh cafe if that makes sense. She gives me a cuppa every week and a hot sausage roll for free.

With the transition to online payments which accelerated this year due to the Coronavirus tips will be down I'm sure.

Nice surprise on Friday to get my first £8 and box of biscuits though.
