Some life advice from Sam Sanders:

I’ve always been an OK tipper, but in recent years I’ve actively tried to become a more generous tipper. I can easily afford it, and it’s one more (modest) way of helping folks out. It only adds up to a fraction of what most of us give to formal charities, and if everyone did it, it would make a difference. Not the biggest difference in the world, but every little bit helps.
