    Nice tip!

    I got a tip this morning (I work as a hotel clerk). There was a guest who needed a ride and did not have time to wait for an Uber driver. I was just getting off work, so I gave him a ride in my old car. He wanted to go to a nearby grocery store, which was having a grand (re-)opening.

    Turns out he's the president and CEO of the grocery chain. He left me a thank-you note at the desk, which I just opened when I came in tonight. Inside were two $20 gift cards for that grocery chain. That's what I call a nice tip.

    Inside that same grocery store the other day, there were actually some coins in the reject slot of the CoinStar machine, which never seems to happen for me. Three were modern US coins, and I don't know why the machine would have rejected them. The other was an Ecuadorian coin about the size of a nickel.

    Well where I work at we have a tip jar placed by the cash register and usually people dump pocket change in it and since everyone knows I collect coins I'm allowed to swap coins out of the tip jar

    That's a fun little fringe benefit.

    I know there's a Winn Dixie store near where I live at and I go to that store as often as I can since they have a coin star machine there and I always find something. Last time I was there I found a Chucky Cheese token in the coin reject bin

    It just so happens it was the President and CEO of Southeastern Grocers (Winn-Dixie) that I had in my car this morning, though I did not know it at the time, when I gave him a ride. I was just trying to help out a guest who needed a quick favor.

    At his suggestion, I'm going to spend those gift cards at the newly-reopened store. That's where I found some stuff in the CoinStar machine the other day.

    I've had some good finds in the till at work. Mostly star notes , but have found some nice error coins too. I keep a loupe in my backpack for this reason .

    So, when you took the silver quarter and the silver dime from the tip jar, I assume that you replaced them with $3.77. Right?

    As long as you didn't have to share the tips with your co-workers, it's okay.

    Well I have to share the tips with my coworkers. Every 2 weeks the tip jar gets emptied out and all the money gets counted and split up by how much money is there and by how many hours one works

    Since his coworkers know he collects coins and allow him to swap them out of the tip jar, there would be no need to pay over face value. Presumably the coworkers know that coins he would remove may be worth more than face.

    May be drifting off topic, but sounds a little strange that CEO of Winn-Dixie wouldn't have a delegation from the store fetch him for a grand re-opening. Was it a surprise visit?

    Really nice of you to offer the ride, and nice tip from him to you.

    So, what if someone tossed a $5 or $10 gold eagle into the jar? Would you just replace it with $5 or $10?

    My point is that it is not the amount that is important. It is your integrity at stake.

    Don't look directly into the sun.

    Yes I would replace it with a 5 or a 10 especially since I could get in trouble with replacing it with its collectable value and not solely its spending value
