    Quoted from northerndude:

    And how are you liking your first few bites??!

    F*^K I hate it when the server asks me that! Instant 5% tip reduction. When did that become a thing anyway? Is it something servers learn during hospitality courses at school? They always ask when I have a mouthful of food so I can only answer with a "mmpmph, mmpph, mmmhhh".

    I see them coming and I say to wifey, "the phrase" before they arrive, i'm probably running a 70% success rate. ffs

    I hate when waiters ask if I'm "still workin on it?"

    It's not work, it's lunch!

    They kind of all do it now. It has spread like wildfire!

    Even at NICE restaurants!

    "I see you still have 30 percent of your $70 steak on the plate. Are ya still workin' on it?!"

    No I'm not goddamn "working on it" like I'm trying to pop a stubborn pimple or knock over a vending machine...I'm fuckin enjoying my steak!

    Quoted from LTG:

    According to Miss Manners, you are correct.
    I didn't use to accept tips. Changed my mind when things got ugly in the mid 2000's.
    LTG : )

    2050? 2500? I kid, I kid.
    Glad to see you're still open and fighting the good fight Lloyd!

    Agreed. The worst. I get it (kinda) if it’s breakfast at the diner and it’s fill ‘em and bill ‘em, eat and get out. But it’s infiltrated fine dining and it’s annoying as shit. “Are you still enjoying your meal sir or are you finished?”. That’s all you need to say. We need to put an end to this.

    I tipped the kid at the auto parts store $5 for coming out in the cold and putting my new battery in my car(free service with purchase).took him about 3 minutes and he seemed surprised by the tip.

    I am always a generous tipper.
    But i have seen tip jars in unusual places.
    Then i have a struggle. In a non traditional setting its 50/50 with me.

    With the pandemic i am more generous because i am still working and have been right thru.
    I picked up some takeout the other night at a nice restaurant and i tipped 80%.
    It made me wonder if the girl who took my money had to share it with the kitchen. I think with take out, the kitchen should get something during the pandemic because i am sure their hours have been cut too. The kitchen prepares the food quickly and hopefully, to my liking.

    I spent some time in Spain and tipping there is considered an insult.

    Quoted from pinlink:

    Honestly, I usually tip like $5 on food to go. I tip well for wait service, but if I am just picking the food up, I don't really get why I am tipping a percentage of the bill. I don't know, just seems weird.

    I always tip at least 20% when picking up take out food.

    In most cases, the tips are split amongst staff. So you're also tipping the person who cooked your food, the person cleaning up, etc.

    Quoted from Brewchap:

    How much do you tip a hair cutting person?

    I just go to Great Clips or the like for a cheap cut - and usually tip 100% to make their day. I mean it's only like $15-$20 bucks, but makes me feel good to see how happy they are. Half the time they try to correct me thinking I pressed the wrong button on the machine.

    I usually walk by any hair cutting saloon, point to my bald head and laugh.
