loosie, and the men out of their ties...........
sw.....officially, the WTS never said to leave literature in place of a proper tip; at the most along with the tip. But individual JWs...........I'd slap them up side the head and take the literature and say to put some money down there.
I remember a brother saying from the platform that it was easier to get a JW to break a commandment than to break a twenty.

While we may be concerned with saving money, we should not knowingly neglect those who expect tips for services rendered. The articles "To Tip—Or Not" and "Tips on Tipping" on pages 24-7 of the June 22, 1986, issue of Awake! still deserve our attention. It was pointed out on page 24: "Tipping is more than a thank-you for extra service rendered. It is the principal part of a person’s income." Awake! also pointed out that when "attending a convention, what you do personally reflects on the whole group. People will judge the group by your behavior." So regardless of your personal views about tipping, when you visit a city as a delegate to a convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses, use good judgment and discernment, and be ready to "do all things for the sake of the good news."—1 Cor. 9:19-23.

. We should also remember that in many places it is customary to leave a 15 to 20 percent tip, depending on the service. Even when eating and drinking, we seek to do all things for God’s glory.—1 Cor. 10:31.
