Tipping

I visit a lot of customers for work and I am making a tipping matrix. I have different countries in the columns and specific service providers (Maid, Taxi, Bellmen, etc) in the rows.   One group I refuse to add is Barista.

 
While between customer visits, the salesmen, FAE, and I went to chain coffee store to kill time and check our e-mail. I went to buy a banana. When giving back my change the clerk used the bills as a pointer to the tip jar. It was a glass jar with a hand printed note that said”
 
TIPPING” IS NOT A CITY IN CHINA.
 
She paused for a good five seconds while giving me a “can I be more obvious?” look.
 
So I took the change, put it away, and got a really dirty look. So the smugly arrogant little Gothy, condescending to help me, clerk wants a tip for selling me a banana. It isn’t like I ordered a double grandee, mocha, triple shot, half & half, polarity modulated, FrappaSomethingOrAnother” with cheese. It was a banana! I had no idea what the appropriate tip is for selling a banana. So I winged it and quickly apologized for my oversight. I then took out my sharpe marker and added to the bottom of the note:
 
NEITHER IS “BEGGING
 
From her expression, that didn’t seem to be the correct response. I guess I won’t be adding that to my matrix. Although I did get smiles from the people behind me.
