    Re: Who do you tip & who's not worthy?

    tipping is something I don't really agree with tbh, although I do it in some scenarios mainly because it's seen as the done thing. End of the day they are people that are being paid to do a job , they are earning money, why should they get anymore? There is the peer pressure with tipping although a lot of the time the person being tipped could be earning more then the customer.
    Nobody tips bus drivers yet everyone tips taxi drivers, whys that? The taxi guy probably earns significantly more than the bus driver does, are more than likely dodges the taxman with it aswell.

    occasionally leave my barber the change, don't use taxi's, and normally round up the bill in a restaurant/eatery to tip the waiting staff,

    Re: Who do you tip & who's not worthy?

    I gave my caddie at the Old Course a hell of a tip. The round was £45 and he got me round in 77 to achieve my life's ambition of breaking 80 round there. I would never have done it without him so I tipped him £32 to make it £77.

    Well done you (although I think I'd have made the tip up on my nett score )

Now we have a minimum wage so waiting staff are no worse paid than many other workers, shop staff etc. Professional waiters will get paid better than minimum wage because they are skilled.

    I don't tip anyone else. Same argument that others will use, they are doing their job, why tip for doing what they should be doing?

    I should add I have been to America and did tip there profusely as culturally it is expected and also they are still in the scenario of bad pay and tips are needed to make their wage acceptable. You tend to find the level of service is vastly superior because of that incentive. I didn't like it but understood the system and it is not the workers fault that it is set up like that.
    This

    But I'll add waitresses in Vegas (free drinks) and lapdancers

    Re: Who do you tip & who's not worthy?

    Barbers I tip, apart from the one that gave me a crew cut instead of a flat top. The plank.
    waiters/waitresses, I will tip unless the meal or service is Rammel like it was at the hunt mans pub on Sunday.

    edit to say, Suprised no one has mentioned " the gratuity" that passengers are expected to pay whilst on cruise ships.

    This for me too. No one has ever tipped me no matter how brilliant I have done my job that day.
