Diane I do tip when I visit. Learnt that from my parents at a young age. When I tip sometimes they seem surprised .
This is it the people them so damn grateful and surprised i feel a way.
as if a couple hundreds is a big thing
The older cashier said she tip her hairdresser because she's renting a booth in someone else's shop, WF had previously said something similar she doesnt tip her hairdresser cause shes the owner. Make sense.
Br, whappen mi luv? Do we tip or not? Did you used to tip when you lived here?
Just asked my 3 aunts, my uncle and they said definitely! My grandpa (84+) said he didnt eat out when he was younger (he bought jerk or from the cookshop but my grams would cook daily AND they had plenty of kids home) but he definitely tips the barber.
My uncle said in my gramps days it wasnt a part of the Jamaican culture but as we had more sit down restaurants and evolved the night life scene we tipped. BUT we dont have a set tipping structure and the folks will take whatever and wont curse you to your face. My gramps said he's a mean man (my uncle says he's really mean) and wouldn't even tip the bar girl (i dont tip them either cause them teeefffffffffffff, maybe i should drop a few 100s thinking about it ) but my uncle said in his younger days you didnt tip the bar girl but you buy her a drink with each round and she fakes it puts the drink back in the stock and takes the cash LMAO
