  • Tipping Chart

    Are you a good tipper?
    I never tip on takeout orders, and tip waitpersons less if I don't get a followup visit to refill my coffee cup and see if everything is okay.

    I suspect I am a good tipper. If I tip extra it will not impact my life, as I have been lucky. I vividly recall getting through college on scholarships and tons of odd jobs, including waiting tables. When on occasion things looked bleak economically, an unexpected big tip made a big difference on mental outlook as well as helping with finances. Today, hopefully more of an impact for recipient then hurting me in any way. Not trying to be a big shot, just helpful to others.

      I'm a big tipper at our favorite bar. The waitresses know us well and will have our preferred drinks on the table before we get finished saying hello to all the other regulars.

      At restaurants, I tip women servers greater than I do the males. If she shows cleavage, does a wiggle when she walks, and flirts then it's a bigger tip. Of course it seals the deal if she puts a hand on my shoulder or arm while calling me 'Hun' or 'Sweetie'.

        Come to think of it, I do tend to be a bit more generous with the gals waiting on tables at Hooters.

          My wife won't go to restaurants, she's into cooking and is a tight wad. Even now that we are doing very well financially we just aren't in the habit, no restaurants since 01, except overseas where it's much cheaper and there is no tipping culture, and the food is good. When ordering fast food she gets none for herself and makes the kids get some sort of on sale item that includes fries and a drink. She puts it in savings or the stock market, it's worked out well.

          I'd much rather a higher minimum wage, like $20, or $25, and people could work at restaurants because that's where they want to work. In countries without tipping service feels more genuine, they treat you nice because they are nice people, not because you might give them money.

            Out in California, one dude asks another what he does for a living. "I am an actor," he replies.
            "So am I," says the other. "What restaurant?"

              99 in Southern California that is no joke, especially in swanky restaurants were they feel they might be discovered. You can spot them as soon as you walk in. Sigh, only in America.

                I watch 'Below Deck' show every so often. Just came across some details of the show. The boats charter from $160,000 to over $175,000 for a 4 or 5 day charter. . The crew is about 10 people. At the end of the charter they give the Captain the tip and it amounts to about 10% of the charter cost and is to be split among the crew.
