Tips when you are out of cash. I was twice or more times in a situation when I payed by card in a cafe and didn't have cash for tips. Fortunately it was my favourite cafe in our town where I come frequently for a glass of beer or wine and have opportunity to give tips any other time. But nevertheless I wonder what should you do if you want to give tips, but have no cash at all with you. Thank you. 

Please, also correct my text :)

Try giving the waiter or waitress some 'real' tips. These are handy ones that I dispense from time to time:

Buy low, sell high. Don't sunbathe. Brush your teeth regularly. Don't play in the traffic. Watch your language in airports. Buy the correct size shoes. Don't go parachuting unless you're a professional. Don't argue with your mother-in-law. Don't give your kids weird names. Don't eat broccoli. 

I hope these help. You're welcome.

I think you are being too kind. If you are out of money, then it is too bad for them. I dont sympathise with waiting staff. They get a good enough pay for easy enough work. I would rather tip a shop assistant, and have. They were astonished, but they had been friendly to me and I thought "who says you should tip only waiters and taxi drivers?". Factory workers are never tipped. They do far harder work for much less pay.

 I was trying to lighten things up a bit. But as usual, there is always a nasty, sour person with no sense of humor who has to downvote an answer.

And he or she will downvote these two comments by me. Just wait and see.
