Tipping PolicyThe wife and I argued about this earlier. How much do you tip...
Pizza Delivery: 2 dollars and whatever the coin change is
Waiter: 20% of the bill before taxes. If service is terrible, it drops to 10-12%
Reds Usher: I try to avoid them but if I can't, then a dollar.
Reds concession vendors: I do not tip them.
Chinese Buffet: Maybe a dollar. It is a buffet where I serve myself.
The tip bucket at chipotle/starbucks/subway/Mccallisters/ect: I do not tip them.
Restaurant Host or Hostess: I tip them nothing.
Appliance Delivery and assembly: I tip them about 15 dollars. This is where the wife and I disagree, she says you're not supposed to tip them because they live off a wage and not tips.Advertisement
Aug 12, 17, 03:39 PM #2I agree with most of these. What about valets? what do you give them or do you?

Aug 12, 17, 04:26 PM #4I tip my pizza delivery guy 20%.
Valets are $5.00
Appliance assembly guys...never occurred to me that I was supposed to do that.
I always worry when you go to one of those restaurants where you stand in line to order something, take a number, then sit and wait for them to bring the food to you. Are you supposed to tip them?

I give my pizza guys/gals $5.

Restaurants start at 20% and occasionally I'll do 25% on good service.
Reds usher $1 or $2 if it's raining otherwise I try to avoid them.

Aug 12, 17, 06:14 PM #7Tipping is out of hand.
It seems we're supposed to tip everything now.

I can't imagine tipping less than 20% at a restaurant. I always round up. Servers live off of their tips.

Food delivery: usually $5
Salon service: $10
I don't tip furniture/appliance delivery, unless they do something extra for me. I don't tin for pizza when I pick it up, or any fast food place.

Aug 12, 17, 08:24 PM #12Unless you see something that says on your bill that the gratuity is included, please tip. For those of us in that line of work, it means a lot.
And if you're British, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Austraiian, New Zealand or South African, please understand that we do things differently in this country. Servers don't make minimum wage here.

Pizza/food delivery guys get 20% from me.

Wait staff gets at least 20%. A very friendly, attentive server gets even more. It would take a rude, unfriendly server for me to tip any less. Most problems I encounter aren't the servers fault, and I won't punish them for someone else's mistake.
Valets get a few bucks, depending on how many singles I have
Ushers get a $1 or two
I don't tip hostesses.
I do tip at the buffets, but only if they bring me drinks or take my plates. Then, I'll give them around 10%.
Furniture/appliance delivery guys will get a 10 spot from me.
Aug 12, 17, 09:03 PM #14I have an unorthodox way of figuring the tip when we're at a restaurant. I'll take the tax amount, multiply it by 3, then add whatever change is needed to make my entire bill an even dollar amount. Since I'm usually paying with my credit/debit card, it makes balancing at the end of the month a whole lot easier.
