    Default Tipping?

    In a day and age where it seems everyone has their hand out, I was wondering what everyone defines as their own “Tipping etiquette”?

    Here’s mine. These amoumts are assuming good or great service…

    1) Restaurant …………..15% to 20%
    2) Restaurant (Buffet)…..10%
    3) Restaurant (Carry out) ..0% (Car hop - a buck or 2)
    4) Bartender / Club Waitress…..10% to 20%
    5) Casino Waitress…$1 per drink
    6) Pizza Delivery….15%
    7) Hair Cut…50% ($10 haircut=$15)
    8) Hotel Valet Parking….$3-$5 Each In-Out
    9) Hotel Bellboy-luggage $3-$5 (don’t usually use them)
    10) Airprt luggage…..$3 (don’t usually use them)
    11) Taxi….15% if they don’t stink

    How 'bout you?

    Seems about right to me. I don't tip for haircuts though.

    Someone once told me a good rule of thumb for delivery is $1-$2 per item. So, if you order 2 pies and a bottle of soda, that should be about $5-$6.

    Typically, I usually just round up to an even number for deliveries. If the total is $21.25, I'll just make it an even $25, or something similar..

    I use the default scale. Generally it's 15%, unless you piss me off, then it goes down. On the other hand, if you impress me, then I'll jack it up.

    I usually tip around 18% at restaurants, unless the waitress is a bombshell, then I'll give much more. And when I get a haircut I tip 2 or 3 bucks. Also, though, if the service is anything less that good at a restaurant, I have been known to leave no tip. And for valet parking, I never use it simply because I don't want to give a tip--and if they screw you into using it, like you can't park otherwise, I give them a buck because that whole deal is BS.

    Mr. Pink: Uh-uh, I don't tip. I don't believe in it. I don't tip because society says I have to. All right, 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.
    Mr. Blue: Hey, our girl was nice.

    I figure about 15% for pretty much everything and I'll round it up to the nearest dollar so it ends up being a little more, unless they do a shitty job and I'll tip accordingly.

    The better looking the waitress, the better the tip!

    I'm the same way. I give a dollar just because I "have" to. I'd rather park my car myself and know I have the keys.

    No shit. You couldn't pay me to let somebody drive my car, much less expect me to pay someone for it.

    If valet service is forced, I don't patronize the business.

    Otherwise, my tipping scale is about what's been reflected in the thread.
