Pro Tips on Not Tipping
It seems as though we are tipping more than ever. It used to be you would have to tip on occasions such as servers, bar tenders and bell hops. I’m probably missing a few but you get the point. These days everyone who provides a service might be expecting a tip.
Coffee shops are famous for their tip jars
I don’t mind tipping on coffee because they did provide a service in making if for your requested desire. If you pay with cash it makes it easier to put the spare change in the tip jar. Now with the pay tablets you are giving the option to tip between 15% , 18%, 20%, Custom tip and of course the “no tip” option.
Most of us have a hard time opting for the “no tip” button, after all the person who handed you the coffee or food is standing right there, but should you really have to tip 20% on a coffee and breakfast sandwich that already cost over 10 dollars?
20% of $10 is $2.00 That seems like a lot
Did they really do all that much? It’s not as though they are serving you at your table, bringing you food and drinks, etc. they might just be grabbing something off the shelf and handing it to you. That’s why I always carry a little walking around money for times when I want to tip somebody for providing a service.
I will offer a tip if I request a nice table at a restaurant
There are times when you are not sure whether or not to tip or whether the person providing the service is expecting one. If a delivery person brings a particularly heavy item to the house, such as a couch should you tip them? I always try to tip them something and maybe even offer them something cold to drink.
Here are they the FIVE times you definitely DON’T to tip
