You give a tip to the waiter, the person who brings you food in a restaurant. You should tip 20% of what you paid, also take into consideration how they behaved and whether they were polite and helpful.
@WintersDaughter are there any other times where you may tip? Like do you tip the taxi driver or hair dresser etc?
You tip the hairdresser, you tip those who do something for you. I've never used a taxi so I don't know about that
Yes you tip taxi drivers
Yes, you tip a taxi driver a little bit, unless it's an Uber or Lyft taxi, which already has the price set in automatically.
Actually the bare minimum for tipping is 15%
Yeah, but you're supposed to tip 20% And if you can't tip, then you don't go out
Ur welcome. Where you headed to?
Have an opinion?
For that, American is an extremely complicated country.Not only are the published prices on the menu totally erroneous but you have to add yet another 15-20% on top of the erroneous bill.In most European countries, the price published on the menu card is actually what you pay. No hidden costs, no needing a university degree to add the government charges.I was always amazed that a great nation like the US was totally incapable to include the government taxes in anything you buy. This is an official way of stealing the citizen.But, alas, that is how life is in America.The tipping is about 15% in addition of the government tax, thus you end up paying about 22-30% more than what you thought your good deal in a restaurant was.By the way, this idiosyncrasy applies to Canada as well.
18-20% of the total bill, in restaurants, bars, or places where someone is performing some kind of service, like bringing you food, drinks, or things like that. That is for really GOOD service, when I don't have to ask for anything, and they know, and anticipate, like when my drink is less than half full, the refill it!If I have to ask, for something, that should be part of normal service, then -2-3%, each time. Drink runs dry, and I wait, more than a few minutes,-2-3%.My food order, not as I requested, -2-3%. If I run out of 'tip' then I make it a point to talk to the manager about specific issues where the server failed.by the way, yes, I have done service, in different places, and different times! I paid attention, and usually got really good tips.Sometimes, however, you get some stingy bastard that doesn't leave shit, even when you are there, on top of everything!
Whatever your bill is, pay the person doing the service an extra 15%. To make the numbers easy. For every 6$ on your bill, give the server a dollar.So, suppose I go to a restaurant and order a dinner that costs me $30.If I was to pay the waiter or waitress a tip of 15%, I would either leave $4.50 on the table (like in the picture) or just add a $4.50 tip on the bill when they run my credit/debit card.However, I would rather give $5.00 which is 30/6.PERSONALLY, I tip very highly... Often near 100%.
Usually, it's about 18-20% of the total before sales tax. You can tip more than that if you wish. Tipping less than that is very rude, unless the service was very poor.Tipped employees (such as waiters and waitresses) are paid a base wage of $2.13/hour before tips. If they do not get much in tips, their employer has to make up the difference - to minimum wage (usually $7.25/hr, although some states it is higher). This is why tipping is expected and is important.I always tip at least 18%. I tend to tip much higher in economically depressed areas and places where business is slow, as they get less tips there.If you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to go out.
You generally tip your waiter 15-20% of the bill. When you get the bill you calculate it. In my opinion it is a good thing as it gives waiters an incentive to be quick, friendly, and respectful instead of just collecting a paycheck while putting in the minimum effort not to get fired and moaning to themselves when new customers come in (as I bet they do in non-tipping countries because that just means more work). You also tip your food delivery person, your taxi driver, the person who carries your luggage at the hotel, the hotel maid and your hairdresser, but you do not need to be as generous as with a waiter. In all cases tipping is optional, if they were rude than don't tip them.
Hey can u help me
Can u pm me please
Here's an explanation of tipping in the U. S., as told by a British teacher working across the Pond:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBTfj2lN6sQWe seem to share the same sentiment on the matter.
And while I'm in a tipping-jurisdiction, I do tip around ≥15% pre-tax while in restaurants. Still, deeply wish U. S. restaurant-management did their FULL job by calculating the TAX & FULL LABOR-PRICE into the prices (like restaurants do back in Asia)!
holy f$%k that video was funny :D
Most restaurants, excluding fast food restaurants, pay servers the tipped-minimum wage (currently $2.13 per hour) or slightly more since they are expected to earn income from gratuities. 15-20% is considered the norm, but it’s at the discretion of the customer. It’s also customary to tip hairdressers, barbers, manicurists, taxi/Uber/Lyft drivers, airport-hotel shuttle drivers, baggage handlers (bell boys), but tips are generally not expected to be as high as for restaurant servers.
Minimum wage isn't $2.13 an hour.
Tipped-minimum wage most certainly is $2.13 - it’s the federal minimum, though some states have elected to raise it. In jobs where employees are expected to earn tips to supplement their employee wages,
employers may pay the reduced tipped-minimum. If combined wages and tips do not meet the regular minimum wage, then the employer must make up the difference. It’s why restaurants send servers home during slow periods, and why many will not guarantee a minimum number of hours.
In America, people, mainly in restaurants, expect you to tip around 15-20% of what you had to pay for your food. You can probably add taxi drivers and bartenders to that list. They EXPECT you to tip.Fucking ridiculous, but Americans are weird-ass people anyways. I'd say tip nothing and find a new restaurant next time. And please give this face when the waitress sighs excessively and looks at you judgingly after she found out you didn't tip.
They’re not ridiculous they get paid less than $3.00 an hour because they’re getting tips. So the tips ARE their salary. They don’t get a living wage in America.
I had to laugh at this one. A couple years ago a guy did exactly the same thing, to include the same jackass face. He walked out of the restaurant and stepped into the street without looking. He got hit by a car. He survived it but is in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. Nothing but memories from the waist down. Karma.
@Alwaysthinking14 That's not the customer's problem, but the waitress'/waiter's and his/her boss's problem. Don't take the job if you feel you're not getting paid properly for it. Don't find people assholes because they don't give you free money for no reason.
@LuvMeSomeBoys Karma for what? Not giving free money? Do you give every single person you come across the street free money, or do you too deserve to be hit by a car?
Think of the servers like homeless beggars. Some earn coins being tossed into their cup and some do not.I tip 20% for average service that didn’t come with an attitude. If they act like an a-hole they get 10% or zero depending on severity. Usually, maybe 90% of the time servers are smart enough to do a half decent job.
Oh, and tips are usually only expected in restaurants where there’s table service or when someone delivers food to you at home/work. Otherwise the workers will put a tip jar/jug on the counter or beg for tips to be added to your bill even if they only spent 10 seconds serving you.
You seriously ''give them less tip'' for acting like an a-hole? Just give them nothing and tell 'em to go fuck themselves (the last one is optional).
Yeah, but I also don’t go back to a restaurant with consistent a-hole service. Sometimes I leave a note. Especially in cases where the server outright lies about what happened. I’m a google maps editor so there’s always 1 star reviews if needed too.
It's usually voluntary unless you're dining with a large party, then it may be included into the bill.Most people will tip 15-20%. If service was exceptionally bad, then tipping 1 cent is the traditional way to convey your dissatisfaction, though most people now just won't leave a tip at all in that case.
15%-20% of bill and is almost always expected. Its just a way for restaurants to get cheap ass labor and throw it on the lap of customers to “pick up the tab”. They should just pay the prevailing market hourly wage and not require tips. I dont eat out.
15-20 percent at a restaurant where they take your order at the table and bring your food to you. $5-7 for a haircut (might be different for women, since haircuts are usually more complicated for them). I think you're supposed to tip taxi drivers too, but I've never taken one. Any service someone does for you free of charge (usually volunteers or government funded nonprofit) it's nice to leave a few dollars if they did a good job.
Some people follow a rule of about 5-15%, depending on how well they were treated by the person waiting on them. Others just give either a flat amount regardless of how they were treated, or just don't give money in general. That last one happens more than you think...
Well then, some people are cheap... I wonder who, lol.
15% of your bill before taxes for average service, 20% of your bill before taxes for excellent service. It’s 15-20% but usually it’s easier to calculate 15 or 20 percent instead of trying to figure out 17 or 18 etc.
if you have a cell phone , android and such then just go to the tool area in the phone and if you hit the right button then you will see a book open up and it will tell you how much of a tip to leave ! Thanks
Tipping works by the boss not paying their workers enough and leaving you to pay for them, you tip at the end of your meal typically and its usually 15 or 20%
I tip 10, 15 or 20% of the total bill. The amount I tip is based on the service and the quality I receive. Say my bill is $32.67My tip at 10% $3.26My tip at 15% $3.90My tip at 20% $6.53Now if its really really bad service. I leave no tip but I leave a note saying why no tip.
it all depends on the service the server gave you if it was good and fast and they dont leave you sitting waiting for them to come back and see if I need some thing if there two of us at the table and the service was good I leave 5$if there's 4 or 5 of us then 8-10 if it sucked then leave a tip on napkin telling them what they need to do to get a tip
Wow, u need to NEVER eat out, at your age you should actually know how to tip
20% of the bill for any sit down restaurant. And as someone who worked as a hostess, if you get a carry out order that is prepared for you leave at least a small tip. It’s always appreciated.
tip either in cash on table or add onto Credit card bill. 15 to 20%.
15% for bad service18% for OK service20% for great service!
It's usually acceptable to tip 15% of your bill depending on the total.
You tip after the meal when you pay.
Do you need to tip at every place you eat?
Yes if your sitting down at a resturant. If your only getting a drink then it's not really necessary.
You are not expected to tip at fast food restaurants but you should those people usually have a hard time.
If i receive good service than the waiter or waitress gets about a $1.00- 2.00 dollar tipin American money the same if i order take out. I tip the delivery guy a $1.00-2.00 dollar tip.
I never give more than 4 dollars. I never go anywhere more than 25 dollars either though.
They say to tip 15-20% of your bill. You can tip whenever you want though. Always better to tip in cash because if you leave tip on a credit card it gets taxed.
When I visited United States, I tipped 20 percent. Not sure what they do in Canada, mexico, or central or south america
I usually tip about 5 to ten dollars rarely 15 but I will depending on their service.
Anything that's pretty much a service although there really isn't any punishment if you don't tip. Some places will just blacklist you.
Here for the answes. Tipping is such a foreign concept here
Its actually a bribe so they don’t spit in your food
you tip when someone does a good job, and i tip about 5 bucks each time.
I try to tip 15-20% of the bill and it’s common to tip that much in the states
When I didn’t have money to pay for tips but still went out, I’d tip less. I go out if I can afford the food, it’s not required to leave a tip. People can go out if they can afford what’s required to pay. Tips shouldn’t stop them
It's usually 15%-18% if you're generous. I've seen people tip 100%~Mr Bails Extraordinaire
Just when someone is doing there job right and the amount is your choice just don't tip coins
I give a generous a tip since I know waiters and waitresses don't make much as a salary base and depend on tips.
Tipping? What a joke the employer should just pay a wage. Glad im not from America.
Generally 20% of the bill before tax
I guess in my country its nonexistent sometimes
When I was in America it was 20%
Here in Canada you tip 15%
in America too.
I double the tax and round up making the tip 15%.
I never tip. I’m a bad person
Yea im having the same issue too!
I only tip to men.
Sounds kinda gay.
@MarketNews It's justice. Not gay. So gtfo of my opinion.
You only give the tip to guys?
