While flying from Denver to Kansas City, Kansas, a lady was sitting across the aisle from a woman and her eight-year-old son.

She couldn’t help but laugh as she heard the mother say to the boy, “Now remember…after we land, run to Dad first, then the dog.”

The Journal of Applied Social Psychology published a paper that showed that when a food server leaves a mint or piece of chocolate with a bill, they typically get a larger tip.

One piece of candy yielded tips that were 3% larger than they otherwise would have been. And leaving two pieces yielded tips that were a whopping 14% larger than they would have been if no candy was left.

That’s what I call a sweet return on investment!
