How often do you give a tip?

My older was very generous on giving a tip. Whenever she go on shopping or dining in a restaurant, or in a saloon most of the time she gave a tip. Especially when she likes the service of the crew or the food. And the best thing of it, we always received the best treatment and accommodation in town. How about you, do you always give a tip?

I always leave a tip after dining in a restarant. The better the service the better the tip. The last I knew the standard was 15% but if the service was great then the tip will reflect that. Understandably some places are extremely busy and often the server has not always got the time for personal treatment but if they have a smile and do their job well then they get tipped well.

Yeah, I agree with you. I would surely give a tip, If I saw a smile and a good job. That's enough for me. I would leave a tip for that person. Thanks for sharing with us and have a great day!

I use to work in the industry as a server and bar tender so I know how important tips are for the working girls. I give a tip for all those you mentioned above. The amount changes based on the service. If the service was horrible I will only leave 10percent. If the service is just okay 15 to 18percent. If the service is great 25-30percent. I cant stand when people go into places without realizing they have to leave a tip. If you order a meal at a resterant people should figure tips into this.

Yeah, I agree with you. People should learned to be generous in peoples' service. I would likely give a tip if the crew was friendly or accommodating. The service is great then, that's a plus. I'm appreciative on someones effort to give their best on their job. As a customers we can barely noticed it. Thanks for sharing with us and have a great day!
