I think it's time to put the "tips jar" out on my office desk again. I used to have one, but I gave up after a certain colleague (?) emptied the coins out and bought himself a new car - or was it a cup of coffee? I figured, if they have a tips jar on the counter at the coffee shop, why can't I have one too? Seemed like a great idea at the time (standard excuse), but in fact it just didn't work out too well. At least I didn't have to worry about reporting the extra cash to the CRA!
