To tip or not to tip? That can be a tough call. Would you tip these people? Or shorten up their bill to make a point?

The Rude Waitress

She hasn’t used any racial slurs, but the six tables around you received their food first. If she’s treating you like a second-class citizen, leave a second-class tip. Or better yet, save your pocket change and go somewhere where your business is appreciated.

The Bartender At “The Spot”

If you head there more than three times a month, it’s a good idea to tip well. You’ll get faster service, better drinks and have a nicer time. The same could be said for any place that you visit often. It helps to build camaraderie.

The Bartender Who Ignores You

If I had to practically do a rain dance to get your attention, I’m keeping my dollar.

Nail Salon Employees

Pretty sure she talks about me in a language I can’t understand. But if you find a nail salon that you love (and that takes last-minute appointments), tipping well only makes your service better.

Anyone Who Comments On The Size Of The Tip

It’s the fastest way to go from a medium sized tip to no tip at all.

Your Stylist

Once you find a stylist who does you right, make it rain so that you can stay at the top of the “Can you squeeze me in?” list.

The Bag Boy Or Girl

They may look at you funny, but if all you did was put my food in a bag do you really deserve 15 percent?

The Bathroom Attendant

Not because you should pay a dollar for being handed a paper towel, but because I don’t want things to be awkward when I have to come back to the loo. Tip or no tip?

The Casino Dealer

I’ve already given you too much of my money…

Your Mechanic

Because finding a good one is almost impossible!

The Hotel Staff

You can get a ton of perks when you do.

Your Mail Carrier

Have an online shopping addiction? It’s only fair to leave a Christmas tip for all those heavy packages that make it to your doorstep.

The Delivery Guy

Only because I’ve heard stories about them messing with your food if you end up on the “doesn’t tip well” list.


This one is a tough one. Do you put something in the tip jar when you get a cup of coffee?
