And no, I'm not a waitress and yes I think 30% is too high unless the services absolutely beyond fantastic. Go to aol.com if you want to read it for yourself.

I used to deliver Pizza and one customer to whom I delivered over $100 ($103.75, if I remember correctly)worth of Pizza paid me $105 and said keep the change implying she was doing me the biggest favor. That's a 1% tip. :(

Best Answer

Bummer! That really does bite. :( But by the same token a $30.00 tip would seem like overkill. So there has to be a happy medium for good service. :)

Best Answer

I completely agree.

I've seen people leave tips as low as 5%.

I'm a college student and I work my butt off for my money, so I usually do my best with tips, but if I get poor service you get a poor tip.

no one pays me tips for my work

Best Answer

I don't care what the "norm" is, I tip by the kind of service I received and that includes everything from the time I walk in to the place until I'm ready to leave. Lousy service = zero tip whereas Super service = a very good tip. And if it's a place that automatically adds a certain percentage to your bill they'll only get me once because I'll never return there again.

The server will remember your face, so if you stiff them ona tip, I'd be wary of eating there again. I should know, I used to work in restaurants.

Hey, I tip.....when the service is deserving of it and it's not like I'm a tough grader. All you have to do is your job in a timely manner. I used to waitress as well so I know all about it.

Best Answer

I don't bother with percentages. If I order something small, I tip $2.00. Otherwise I tip $5.00.
