Like Wes/Gyp, I go at least 20% and I tip everyone. The pizza delivery guy $5, the Directv installer $20, the appliance delivery guy $20. Most of our spending money last summer at an all inclusive resort was spent on tips and it really made a difference. The drink girl came to our area on the beach more often than the people around us because she knew she was getting paid and we weren't getting thirsty.
What if you get takeout at a pizza place and have to pick it up. Do you tip? This is the one I struggle with. If we have a lot of food ordered, I leave a tip. If I'm getting a pepperoni for the kids, no tip.
Why do you tip for example servers but not other professions a la if a company is renovating your home for price like 20000 USD, then you don't give tip to the person(s) whod do the actual renovation for about 4000 USD?
Am i correct that nobody is paying tax about tip they recieve?
When company is having a party, then they are not giving tip, because nobody isn't giving a written check for that, right?
Funny, I don't tip on pizza when picking it up, but I still tip fairly well if I'm picking up at a regular restaurant .. not sure of the logic .. but it's what I do.
I don't tip.
I don't tip just because society says I have to. If someone deserves a tip, if they really put forth an effort, I'll give them something a little something extra. But this tipping automatically, it's for the birds. As far as I'm concerned, they're just doing their job.
Life is like watching Fast and the Furious 6. It's not easy, most of the time it's just dumb and pointless, everything is fake, there is a lot of noise, but if you close your eyes and picture yourself in an open field or a quiet forest, you can maybe make it to the end without killing yourself.
If someone brings me my food, other than handing it over a counter or through a window, I tip. If it's nothing more than putting it on a tray or handing it through the drive-thru window, no. I tip the pizza delivery guy. Never thought about tipping an appliance delivery guy. I would never tip a Direct TV installer though. I never get a tip for doing service work in a house, why should I tip somebody else for doing it for me?
It depends on how many quarters I have on my person.
What does everyone tip sandwich delivery drivers?
My love for Gordy Hayward is unabashed.
If you came to my house for electrical work and really did a great job and did some unexpected stuff, you'd get a dinner out of it.
Server wages in Utah are $2.13 an hr.
I tip at least 20 percent.
You'd be surprised how cheap most restaurant eating Utahns are. Then again, SL County servers are typically tipped out better than those in Utah County... When one works up in SL County the tip percentage usually hovers between 18-20 percent. In Utah County, all the Zoobies, gigantic Mormon families, and ultra conservatives are notorious for 10-15 percent tips. Receiving an avg tip percentage of 18 percent for most servers is a really good shift in Utah County...
I once served a family. Both parents were about 26-28 years old (he was at BYU Law School), already had 3 kids, ate like none other (and spilled a lot of the food on the floor), and then ended up tipping $3 bucks on a bill over 50 bucks. Nice job.
