Bet a wooden nickel that Trader Joe is joking with us. My frugality budgets for tipping every hotel housekeeper, Uber/taxi driver, and restaurant server I encounter.
However, my 25-year-old Honda with 229K miles was really rough and noisy when gear shifting today, so I hope I can find some good advice on the forum on what do do if you have to buy a car but don't want to.

Lovely. Best time to walk it. But be careful it can be still snowy when you start in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port. But walking into the Spanish spring will be awesome.quantAndHold wrote: ↑Mon Jan 13, 2020 10:44 pmWe’re starting right after Easter.mindgap wrote: ↑Mon Jan 13, 2020 8:13 pmBuen Camino.

I can top that. One day last week, we walked 13 miles round trip to the gym, with stops for coffee, lunch, the post office, and the mall. Since we had coffee and ate lunch out, it wasn't exactly frugal. We're training to walk the Camino, which is also not frugal. It took us all day.
Wait what? Now we are supposed to tip Uber drivers? Isn't that the main selling point for the company?
I don't think about myself as being frugal or enjoying frugal things but I have never tipped in my entire life hotel housekeepers or uber drivers (and I did not even realize that I should).Minty wrote: ↑Tue Jan 14, 2020 12:28 amBet a wooden nickel that Trader Joe is joking with us.

And am I not crazy:

Only 1 percent of Uber customers always tip, while nearly 60 percent never do, according to a new study from the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER). The average tip is 50 cents a ride, but for those who do tip, the average is more like $3.
