I agree with you. if I tip even close to 30% EVERY dog gone THING better have been perfect.
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. :(
I completely agree.
usually 15-20% depending on the service and mood I'm in.<br />
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
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.
I don't bother with percentages. If I order something small, I tip $2.00. Otherwise I tip $5.00.
That sounds like a lot o_O<br />
I usually tip ba<x>sed on the service I got.
Tipping your waiter/waitress is only slightly less moral than tipping cows.
I'd want standards of service to reflect the same hike.
here if they get paid min wage ... which is like $9.00/hour ish... then no not tipping that amount ever.
What state do you live in where waitstaff gets minimum wage? My state pays them $2.35 an hour. Also my state's minimum wage is about $7 I dunno where you live but I think I should move.
the northern state of Canada
wow in my province min wage just went up to $9.75/hour
Then I will be getting it "to go" .... thats rediculous
