Q: How do you base your tipping decisions?
A: Quality and duration always make a difference in affecting the percentage. Good service must be rewarded and bad service will get only a minimal tip and a phone call or personal complaint to management
Q: What personal experiences influence your tipping style?
A: I was a waitress and know how hard that job is. I also was once married to a cab driver so I know how difficult that job can be.
Q: Any other thoughts?
A: A discussion of tip “pooling” would be interesting. Also, why do some employers think this is the best way to “pay” their employees?
In May, we asked our listeners and readers how they decide what to tip for the services they use. More than 500 people responded to our survey. Many provided their personal experiences, strategies and rationales for how they handle this often confusing part of everyday life.
