A) He should be tipped $2 for his time. B) $1 is the standard for each cab he hails, $2 if it's raining. C) $5 is the standard for each cab he hails. A right answer gets a plus ..

If you're talking about tipping a doorman in a building you live in, you don't tip his for hailing a cab, that's part of his job. Instead, you give each of the doormen in your building a tip at Christmas holiday time. A friend of mine is a doorman and he says the building mgt. sends around a note near the end of the year with suggested amounts for each person (doormen, elevator men, etc.)

A dollar is the right amount. The doorman did not do enough work to earn more than a dollar. Other amounts take more time and thought. A dollar is easy to give without thinking about it.
