How Much Do You Tip On...

Typical El Presidente Random Thoughts type stuff

No offense Beep but I get my haircut from a smokeshow in Marblehead who intentionally throws her silicon in my grill and her hair smells like cinnamon . It's $30 with tip for a wash and rinse and cut and worth every penny.

buncha cheap pricks here, but I think that's been established in the past.

I'd never give a barber anything less than 5 bucks. Unless you're getting 52 cuts a year, ditch the alligator arms.

When I used to let this chick cut my hair it was $24 and $6........unless she included a shoulder rub then it was twin Jackson's, but sometimes she had people waiting.

few more bucks to avoid looking like a flowbee special = worthwhile investment

People to skip: Here's some good news for your budget. There's no need to tip the owner of an establishment (such as a hair salon), salaried staff (such as salespeople), full-service gas attendants, furniture delivery people (charges are included), or a flower delivery person, says Bowman.

Final word of advice: Tipping 10 to 15 percent is old-school, says Bowman. The new standard is 20 percent and up. And if you're a regular customer at a restaurant, you might want to consider leaving more to guarantee you get good service on each visit. After all, says Bowman, the literal translation of "to tip" is "to ensure promptness."

Yeah those full service gas station attendants really rake it in.

When I was 15 and working at a gas station, old people would always tip. People under 45 never would. Supposedly tipping at a gas station was commonplace back in the day. I guess now people just expect you to check their oil and power steering fluid and squeege their windshields when they buy $5 of gas and there's a line of cars backed up the street honking at you.

That list is bogus.

You mean there are still full service gas stations?

oh yeah, isn't it a law there or something that you can't pump your own gas? Terrible.

That caught me off guard in NJ. I was circling the pumps looking for the self serve. Never knew that before 2 months ago.
