Tip? Nein!

This item appears on page 53 of the October 2011 issue.

I just read the readers’ letters in the article “How Much to Tip Airport Wheelchair Attendants” (Aug. ’11, pg. 40). During our travels, my wife does much the same as those travelers, though the amount she tips is about $5.

However, when we were in the Frankfurt airport about a year ago, the electric-cart driver told us that if he or his colleagues were to accept a tip, they would be fired.
