How do you go about tipping people? And when and what is appropriate to tip?

Some things are pretty easy to figure out like a taxi and dinner at your local eating place, but some things are more tricky. How about movers? Pizza delivery guy? Of course service, time etc come into play.

I consider myself a generous tipper. What about you guys? what and how do you tip people?

Also, feel free to tell if you deserved a tip and got nothing.

Generous tipping FTW. It costs you an extra dollar or two and makes someone's day.

For movers it depends on the time and how much they had to move,when I moved it took 4 hours and we had to take out something in the street,so we paid a bit more.

I start out with the mindset that they aren't getting a tip. If they don't somehow make an impression on me, I won't tip. Pretty standard. I mean, a lot of them just assume they're getting/deserve a tip. But they don't because of their mediocre to shitty service. You're supposed to make my experience as easy and pleasant is possible. If you do that, you might get a little something extra.

Tip to insure promptness. so around 20% or $3-5 for pizza.


EDIT: I worked at a pizza place, and one of our drivers accidentally locked his keys in his car outside someones house. I delivered there next, after he quit, and got a $20 tip.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

you tip taxi drivers!?? they steal enough of my money with their prices for me to give them a tip...
#7
I usually flip a 1€ coin or two. Mostly restaurants, and the pizza delivery guy. Nothing if the service sucked, of course.

If it's less than $5, they don't get a tip.
$5-$10 gets $1, $11-$20 gets two, so on and so forth.

I tip in the usual situations, i.e. restaurants, movers, that sort of stuff.

And if the person wasn't a total dick, I tend to tip very generously.

I hate getting tipped, because your only doing your job which you get paid for anyway. I use to get tipped for doing the stupidest things like carry something to a car. However i do tip people if they were really nice and really helpful, things like going out of their way to help.

Pretty much the opposite of this. For couriers/waiters/movers etc. they're providing me a service I didn't want to do and most of them work for tips. I'll only tip less/won't tip if they mess up pretty badly (and are at fault for whatever it was. A late delivery due to a slow kitchen isn't their fault).

Since I work for tips myself (pizza guy) I tip very well. Take care of your pizza guys, we remember everything and we control when you get your food.
#20
I dont know if maybe its a different country thing, but im in England an no one I know tips that generously really. Might be cos I'm a uni student, as are most of my friends.

I never tip taxi drivers, theyre overpriced as it is, they can keep the change though usually. Same applied to takewaway delivery people, they can keep the change if its not too much. I tip a couple of pounds at restaurants, no set % or anything though.


Edit: Maybe I'm just being a bit tight or grumpy lol but say you go out with mates and you all together spent £100, would you really tip an extra £20 just because the waiter managed to do his job properly ?

What the ****? A tip is 12%. I'm never sure about pizza delivery boys, i'll tip them if they have to give me change. Who the **** works out 1% of a tenner? That's 10p for 5 miles in a cab. You bastards.
#22
10-20%. None if they suck/are douchbags. I work in a grocery store, and though I know this is not common, we help people out to their cars a lot, especially in the snow/rain, yet nobody ever tips. We all make minimum wage, and it'd be nice if people did every once in a while, even if it was only a dollar or something.

23 percent when the waitress or female in question is hot, to show that I'm a generous person, but not moreso than the average tipper, and that I can also calculate.

How is tipping 3-4% "tipping well"?
#26
No mother****ing way am I tipping a pizza guy 5 bucks. To me it's like this:

Resturant: 15-20% just because of the fear they might **** with my food the next time I'm there. Otherwise like 10%

Pizza: I tip like a buck for $10 order or 2 for a $20 one..you drove and brought me food. congrads. Hopefully they don't **** with my food

Barber: generally not, but a buck or so if they took their time and did a good job

Bartender: def a buck or two if buying mixed drinks so they don't give you watered down shit

Bellboy: neg, I'll carry up my own shit

Valet: eh maybe a few bucks so they dont **** up your car

...seeing a pattern here cuz I know I'm not the only one. You tip people so they don't **** up your food/hair/car etc.

I meant that i tip 3-4% for sub par/average jobs. If they are nice and helpful, I give them around 10%.
#29
I don't tip because it's not really the done thing here, but it would really be good to know the etiquette of it. If I am in North America I can't exactly ask a waiter how much I'm supposed to tip him
#31
Pizza guy usually gets a couple of bucks, waiters get a five unless it's a really nice restaurant then I tip 10 plus whatever makes the bill a nice round number. If the person I'm tipping is particularly friendly/helpful/attractive they may get a few extra on top of that.

Yeah they use their car and their gas to bring you your food that you were too lazy to get yourself. Not to mention dealing with the bad weather.

For the record, 10% is generally considered a bad tip.

Around here, you can't go wrong with around 15%. Less for bad service and more if you're feeling generous and had good service.

And I wouldn't ever give a pizza delivery person less than 3 bucks. My house is kinda out of the way and annoying to find. More likely I'd give 'em a 5. If I'm too lazy to drive down there, it's my own fault that I'm paying more.

Never tip a waiter based on the food because they are not the ones cooking it. I always try to tip atleast 15% unless the persons rude or something.

Where is here?

So do you just go 'and here's the tip!' or what? is it added on already as service? 15% of post-vat total? do people in tipping proffessions not expect to be giving change when given bills?

SO CONFUSING AND AWKWARD.

Usually you just leave it on the table at a restaurant. I've never tipped for anything else.

yeah it is.

At restaurants there's usually a line on the check that says "Tip". If you're paying by card, you write the amount there and add it on to the total line below. If you're tipping with cash, you leave it on the table as you're leaving.

And they will always give you change unless you tell them to keep the remainder.
