I leave notes with my tips if my server/waitress/attendant was great or horrible to make them aware of the service they're providing :) 

Exactly why I mentioned it.

The only time I tip is if I'm out to eat or if someone delivers food to me. Usually I tip them anywhere from $3-10 more or less depending on how much I spent in the first place. Otherwise anything such as cab drivers, nail techs, etc. I don't tip. Especially not no cab driver since I think they overcharge as it is. Stern Smile

Tip however much you want to because it's always going to be too much or not enough to someone else.

Overall, I think tipping is stupid and I don't like it. I think the cost of something should be fair and employees should receive a fair wage...but that's not the system we have now, so therefore I tip. I don't tip for bad service (and I let you know I'm not tipping) and I don't tip well for basic service (ie you did what you were supposed to and no more). I tip well for great service.

In general, I will give a big tip (20%+) if the person was great and if I know I'm coming back to the place and want to be treated well. I also give delivery people extra since my house is difficult to find.

I realize servers get 15 to 20% but what about nail techs?

I usually give like $2-3 if just getting a mani, $5 if a mani-pedi but I only get basic mani's that cost about $13 and mani-pedi's that cost anywhere between 16 - 25 depending on what day I get them done.

They have to touch some crusty feet throughout the day! *LOL*
How about the taxi driver? Delivery driver?

Taxi 10%...delivery guy? Nothing I misread that to mean like the FedEx/UPS guys lol. Well I haven't done delivery in forever, but usually I try to give atleast 10-20% of the total order.

I believe I overtip but sometimes feel like it's not enough.
Just curious what your thoughts are...


**for waiters, etc. I usually do 20% standard unless the service is crap in which I either under tip or don't tip at all. I actually had a woman try to harrass me about NOT tipping and she wasn't even my waiter. I told her straight to her face, if it meant that much then the food shouldn't have been ridiculously late after the server took forever to even come take our order and NEVER returned to check on us. A tip = thank you for your good service. Tips are not requirements.

I wish we were like Japan...no tipping allowed!

I over tip when eating out. I give the pizza guy 4 bucks. But they are literally right down the street and around a corner. Carryout 2 bucks.
