Tipping the baggers at El Comer
After I learned that the baggers aren't paid a salary, I've been upping my tip, and the last time I went, I paid the bagger 20 pesos. He was almost embarrassingly grateful, saying it was way above average. I've since decided to increase my tip to 50 pesos. I don't go there that often. $2.50 is not a big deal to me, but it is to them. And it is only accident that I happened to be born in a much wealthier country (and at a time when I didn't have to spend half my adult life paying off college debts). I'd like to hear anyone else's opinion on this, whether you think it's a good idea or not.

I like what your doing I've been more generous but not as generous as you. I'm guessing they will be fighting to do you bagging. a lot of people have it tough here and the things that seem small to us can be very big for them.

Thank you

And while we are at it, if you come back from Pozuelos in a cab, save a few pesos for the man in the wheel chair who badgers the dispatcher for cabs and keeps everybody in the que honest.

I always enjoyed tipping the young girl who bagged groceries at the Ahorremas store on Cantarranas. I don't know if she ever got any of the money, but the look of surprise on her face always made the act worthwhile.

On a side note, my Spanish teacher Luis told me a few years back that waiters in restaurants only make $4-$5 USD per eight hour day. Ever since I heard that I "upped my game" a little on the tips.
