Wednesday Word: Pourboire

I haven't posted an actual definition lately, and was wondering what I could post today when I read an email from Kally Jo Surbeck's yahoo group.

It's a word I hadn't heard before and found rather interesting.

"Pourboire" (French)

"Definition: (noun) A relatively small amount of money given for services rendered.

Synonyms: baksheesh, gratuity, tip

Usage: The bellboy waited expectantly, but no pourboire was forthcoming."
