Having a daughter at Auburn and going to have three daughters at Auburn this fall I understand the need for tips for those working for them.  First of all, I have the utmost respect and admiration for a high school or college student getting out there and working for money instead of getting it from mom and dad or stealing it.  In today' society, that mindset should be rewarded.  I like to tip at least $5 for a gas fill-up.  My tips are sometimes based on the weather.  If it's scalding hot, I will tip better if nothing else to let them know I admire and respect them for having a job and EARNING money.  I always try to be a model customer too.  You'd be surprised at how far that goes with them as far as how they will treat you the next time they see you.  I saw a man literally yelling at a young man for not catching his boat when he pulled in to the gas dock.  He hit rather hard and me being me I laughed and said "maybe you should learn how to drive a boat and stop blaming your mistakes on other people".  I hate mean people and there are a lot of them around these days.  The young man did a good job for the man and took his verbal abuse and got no tip at all.  I gave him $15 and told him he did a fine job and don't let a$$holes like that bother him.
