Make a stand next time Boston. I go to a place that has 6-7 guys cutting hair. It's very common to walk in and have 2 people waiting and 4 guys with open chairs.

Barbers don't get bitter about it at all because they all have their regulars.

I would always go with the flat 20 but supercuts here is $23. Brutal.

When you raise your prices to $16 though, you're still only getting a $20.



Bingo again.

And the mailman gets NOTHING.

I do the same. At least that's what I did last time I cut my hair in May.

I don't go to the owner although he does cut hair at my place. Also is it rude to wait for your barber if there is no one else in there and your barber is cutting someone's hair and the other guy is just sitting there with a broom in his hands?


My barber owns the shop and I always tip him---I'm tipping him for services rendered.

No, it's not rude to wait for your barber. Don't go to a guy just because he's open. I always wait.

The only one I avoid is the white trash chick who had to have just had Gastric Bypass because her arm fat hangs like its weighted down with a roll of quarters.

She routinely talks about her baby daddy. Torture.

I tip my barber $5 or more.

I'm actually due for a haircut. Been awhile.

I never tipped either until I met my wife(she's a letter carrier) now I think everyone should tip atleast $20 and most people do. Thanks for the paid winter vacation.

Do you tip the FFB commissioner when you win the title?

I've got that dilemma coming soon.

What, if any, is the tip for the deliverer of a free town weekly newspaper that is delivered to my house every Thursday afternoon? I have never seen the deliverer, its just on my sidewalk every Thursday. I think he left an addressed envelope last year that went unmailed.
