Holiday Tipping
« on: December 07, 2008, 10:05:33 AM »

Do you tip during the holidays?

Generally, I tip my hairdresser, my waxer, the mailman, the garbage men, and my landscaper. I also send a basket to my office, a basket to any doctors who take care of my children regularly, and a basket to the schools. sometimes i send one to the dealership who services my car if i've been in recently.

the garbage men, and my landscaper.

Bra1n! haha

I don't tip anyone as a holiday present. They get paid to do their job. I have kids to pay for. Sounds mean, but I would go broke if I paid everyone extra on the holidays plus bought gifts for family and friends.  I think its a retarded rule.

 :uhuh:

 :vc: nah, i've used the same landscaper for like 6 years, if he was going to knock over my house he would have already. i tip his guys when they come and shovel too.

usually when i remit my bill to the recycle/refuse company this time of year, i send it in a holiday card with a tip "for the guys". i look at it as a preemptive strike, plus i don't usually separate my cans, from the plastic or the newspapers and they do it for me, so i think tipping them is appropriate.

i think any sort of back breaking work deserves a tip, especially when you know the people probably make very little money.

I tip the waxer and the nail chicks (even though they're bitches and talk about me in Vietnamese when I'm there), the garbage man and the mail man. That's about it. I don't have a landscaper anymore but when I did, I didn't really tip for the holidays because we stopped using them at the end of October and didn't resume service til early March.  And I paid them an arm and a leg to keep up with my neighbors so fuck that.

i stopped using my landscaper for mowing and just use him for fall/spring cleanup and plowing/shoveling. i find that the better you tip people you have routine dealings with, the better the job gets done. for instance, when i order out. i tip the kid 20% and our delivery is always there in like 20 minutes. when its a different kid than i usually have, i notice it takes longer and with my mailman, if there are magazines and a bunch of stuff like there usually is (i'm a catalog whore), he'll bring it right to my door and ring the bell for me. i can always tell when he is on vacation because my mail is literally crammed in my box and all wrinkled up.

Well yeah, as far as delivery service and things like that, I tip well all year. Because aside from the fact that it (usually) ensures better service, people like cab drivers, waitresses and delivery kids depend on their tips to make a living. They get a shitty base pay. I waitressed on weekends in a little Itailan restaurant on Mulberry St. when I was in college, so I know what that's like.

I have been known to tip the kitchen staff since they are the ones who really do the work. No one comes out to a restaurant for the "good waiters" they come out for the food.

I have also been known to ask for the chef if the food is gross. Anyway it is the waitstaffs fault if bad food goes out, they should know their food well enough. If you won't eat it don't serve it.That's where PROFESSIONALISM comes in. example... a well done steak cooked in ten minutes is going to be med rare. KNow your ticket times.
