Most of us know that the weather affects our mood, for better or worse. But, did you know that the weather can affect how much you tip in a restaurant? According to a May 1996 article called Sunny Days and Tips for Waiters in Psychology Today, tips increase from 19% to 24% when the waiter mentioned favorable weather! I wish I knew that when I was waiting tables as a college student.
If weather can affect how much patrons tip, I'm betting that it affects how productive we are at work and at home. What do you think? Do you get more done when it's sunny? Or, is your productivity about the same no matter what the weather?
