How Much to Tip ?

By David from My Two Dollars

Ever wonder who you should tip, when you should tip, or how much you should tip? Don’t worry, you aren’t alone – not even close. Most of us take a guess at the amount and hope for the best; hoping we left enough to be remembered in a good way rather than a bad way! And while most of us tip for service in restaurants and bars, there are a lot of other places where tips are a way of life. Like them or not, tips can make or break the service you get for your money or even more importantly, help people make ends meet due to the low pay at their jobs.

If service was so bad that you would never eat in the restaurant again, leave two cents. This is a deliberate insult, because it tells the waiter that you didn’t forget to leave a tip.

If you are in doubt, ask whether it is appropriate to tip or whether a gratuity is included in the bill.

Bribery is not considered appropriate and often illegal. Attempting to bribe a policeman will certainly get you arrested.
