Tipping the bus boy

RE: Conflicts and tipping 

The Minister is correct for the most part. But the following quoted text is a problem. You wondered how the illegal weapons smuggled into the country when company prepaid for their containers with knowledge that it will not be searched, then it’s easy to smuggle illegal paraphernalia and things of that nature into the country.

“I know we will be highly criticized by this incident for our Green Lane list, but this does not mean we will suspend this system,” he said.

“It’s working as the businesses prepay their shipments and the companies get their containers right away.”

And how would you know if that money given after the service was render a tip, if there’s another container arriving tomorrow or Friday? 

But nonetheless I’m with you, nothing wrong with tipping a good server, if he is a busboy in the restaurant.
