WHAT KIND OF A TIPPER ARE YOU? I tip more than most, but not if the service is rude. I have friends who have worked in those services where tips made the difference between being a restaurant’s slave and an independent entrepreneur. Both my sons were parking valets in their youth and tips are what made all the running worth while. Their report was that those who drove the fanciest cars were often the worse tippers did not surprise me. Not sharing is not good for either party. Those who rely on tips can become bitter; those who don’t tip have not learned what matters and probably worry too much about not having enough.
I read this Wiki with interest as my rapidly diminishing income means be a bit more careful.
