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

I love loved the culture at Carib cinema when it was only one theatre. Pure jokes and talking back to the screen getting up and bussing a gun finger or 2. It is still there but only for 2-for-1 tuedays! love it, an action or horror movie on a tuesday at 5 pm JOKESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS deaddings lord to hear the collective sucking of teeth if the movie ending is crappy.

Now random chatting and noise annoys me. and i'll ask the person to keep it down or the answeing of phones BUT what really will make me curse badwords loudlyEmbarrassedEmbarrassed ( the entire theatre heard) is the dumb azz chicks who take pics in the movies with flash. CHEESE SAUCE CHRISE!!! I took it in stride i was patient while the light blinded me, i allowed young folks to have fun, couldnt understand why one needs to take a pic in the dimmed lights (intermission) but when the lights off and the curtains re-opening and you flash that mother fuqqin light for a fourth time you will get a "bumbobloodclaat, no, just no , no" Same scenario last month too wtf?

Wildfire isn't alone. We were in the market and my mother let the higgler lady keep the change ... my cousin was mad puss piss vex, wanted to take the money out of the lady's hand

I don't know what is so serious of extending gratitude someone can feel
