So, the woman who I tutor keeps giving me this $100 bill. I’ve given it back to her & refused her money, but she insists upon paying me (it’s a volunteer position). I am stymied. I have literally returned her money, but she continues to slide it in my purse when I’m not looking. How can I be altruistic when she continues to show her appreciation for my actions by paying me!?
There’s a fine line between etiquette & insult in cases like this.
