I always over tip. Sometimes up to 25% without even thinking.
One thing I struggled with recently is what to tip the Peapod delivery guy. We settled on a dollar a bag, but I throw in a couple of extra dollars cuz I'm a sucker.
Cabs. Restaurant/bar services. Haircuts, manicures, pedicures, anything spa-related. Any kind of delivery.Oh, and you tip the wood guy.
what do you tip delivery guys? even being one once (pianos), i don't like tipping, because i'm usually paying a significant sum for the delivery. that's my rationalization at least.
What Emily said, along with bellhops, concierge, and hotel doormen who flag down cabs for me. I don't tip delivery men unless you're talking about the pizza guy or another food delivery person. I always tip at least 20%, usually a little more. Having once been a waitress, I am empathetic to their lowly paychecks.
Everything - I live in Manhattan!
Here's my question, I always have the issue of Christmas time. We have in the past tipped the postal man at Christmas. I've heard at Christmas you should give a little card and tip to postal man, garbage man, even extra to your hair dresser. Anyone else do this?
Becky, I believe it's illegal to tip a postal worker. I give mine a restaurant giftcard. I tip my hairdresser and spa lady extra at Christmastime. Same with my favorite grocery store bag boy who loads the groceries into my car. I don't tip the garbage men, but I'm sure many people do!
I always overpay at childrens' lemonade stands. I'm not sure if that's considered a tip ... or if I'm just a sucker when it comes to little kids and sugary drinks.
Lisa, that's awesome! i posted about that once.http://www.allopinionsarenotequal.com/2007/10/challenge-encouraging-invention.html
