I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters.
- Frank Lloyd Wright (1868-1959)
I tip a minimum of 20%. If they do a really good job I will do as much as 25-30% I started my career in the hospitality industry and servers, bartenders, valets etc... need to make a living as well. They are working damn hard to take care of us. I am now a Realtor and I know that my success as a professional can be attributed to how I learned to take care of people in the service/hospitality industry. It's my way of giving back because there are a lot of talented, hard working people in that industry. They should be taken care of...so as long as they do a good job
I have a motto that you can't outgive God. The more you give to others in need, the more that God blesses you...how do I know who needs it and who don't...well I rely on my intuition...this morning at Bob Evans, a waitress was home for winter break from school to make a little extra money. I gave her 100.00...she became tearful and thanked me because she was struggling and the money would really help a lot...i didn't know she was hurting financially but in talking to my daughter while refilling my coffee, i sensed that she must need help if she was home for christmas and she was working so she could continue at school...i was blessed to be able to help her.
It's not as important where you came from, or where you've been, as it is where you are going, or where you end up!
You see that sign that says 'Rib Tips'??
Some of you who have waited tables, help me do the correct math. If you work at a nice place and work an 8 hour shift. I would assume you wait at least 20 tables who would average $150 each tabs. @20% that's $600 in tips/8 hours= $75/hr then add in minimum wages. I doubt they make anything close, so tell why my math is wrong. Do waiters split their tips with the kitchen? I am not trying to cute here, I've just never understood 20% so help me.

Not the kitchen, but they have to split with all the bus boys, and usually the hostess. If they are good enough to get a gig with 20 tables a night that average $150, they are probably very good at what they do and have been doing it a long time, and they deserve that money - it's a very tough job.
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
I work as a hunting guide the bill can be anywhere from 200 to 10,000. my average tip is between $50 and $300.00 I get alot more depending on the trophy size or number of oppurtunities they get on animals.
I try to tip above 20% when the service is good.
God deserves more but I give to homeless people I see and try to help those thaT are less fortunate
