History of Tipping

Tipping egan as an aristocratic practice, a sprinkle of change for social inferiors, and it quickly spread among the upper classes of Europe and rich Americans returned back to USA after the civil war.

The word evolved from 'drink money' supporting the idea that the practice began in eating establishments and was meant to avoid envy on the part of the server and to send the message that the server should have a drink at the customer's expense.

Americans hand over some $42 billion in tips
