A 10% discretionary charge will be added to your bill.

Tipping: bad for cows, good for us.
Ninja lion killed family. Need money for kung fu lessons.
Or, this harsh but humorous one.

I reckon you’d be more likely to give willingly. And you’re more likely to walk away with a positive impression of that business.
And it’s not just tipping. Whether it’s a CV, an email, a PowerPoint, whatever. Try having a personality in your writing. People will remember you. And they might just give you what you want.
