    Im a generous tipper as long as the service is excellent .

    Once again, I very clearly CLICKed on "No" and SH misread my mouse click. Someone at SH needs to stop screwing up.

    I do not tip more (or less) during "the holidays" because I don't travel or eat out anywhere that would require or expect tipping. I spend time with family, not strangers, and we just don't need third parties providing lodging or food--things that might normally require tipping--when we get together.

    No. I don't tip at all. I don't waste my money as quickly as americans do.
  • TXredhead Denny Boy 2012/12/14 01:30:00
    By law you are suppose to tip around 20%, those that work in the service industry get paid less than minimum wage because the customer is suppose to tip.

    Always have. I use the same services all year and that is their gift
  • Max7 2012/12/13 22:26:57
    I am consistent, the waiter/waitress tip depends souly on the kind of service that they render.
  • Aloria 2012/12/13 22:26:09
    I waitressed during high school,I cant imagine trying to do that job with a family to support,so yes I am even more generous during Christmas,I love to see the look on their face when they get more than the bill,and I can afford it for now... be generous

    I am BAD. I don't, but probably should. Servers work their fannies off.
  • regina.tollfeldt 2012/12/13 21:44:34
    I always tip. People who work as service people do not make a lot of money, so they do
    depend on their tips to increase their income. I had a male friend, who was very well off,
    tell me that he never tipped. He believed that people who worked in that line of work do
    it by choice, therefore, they do not deserve tips. What a stingy egoist, he was. I always
    put myself in their place and if that was my job I would appreciate receiving a tip for my
    service. I tip 20% everytime. My brother-in-law only tips if he thinks that he is receiving
    good service.

    They want to know whether you tip MORE during the holidays.
  • pinkjae 2012/12/13 21:42:58
    Of coarse as long as i get good service I will definantly give a little extra.
  • Grizzle 2012/12/13 20:58:43
    I'm sorry, I thought this was a drinking question :0)
  • Dori 2012/12/13 20:49:46
    I tip according to the level of service all year around. Great service can be as high as 50%, whereas poor service would be 15%. Put a smile on that face and at least act like you're interested. It pays.
  • lolitalovely 2012/12/13 20:23:26
    Something else. I eat out more at the holidays so I tip more overall, but I tip about the same per dining experience.

    I think so, but I don't have it as a rule.
  • Ciarog 2012/12/13 20:17:18
    Why would I ever tip?
  • ♩♪♥Vict... Ciarog 2012/12/13 22:13:58
    Because what you don't know is that money is used to pay the waitresses and waiters. If you don't tip, it costs money out of THEIR pockets, which means they basically paid just to serve you. Besides its just rude. you don't know if that person is forced to live off of those tips, which means less money to feed their families and pay bills.
  • yabbadabbadoo 2012/12/13 20:12:30

    Nope, not in this economy and living in an expensive city I wish I could but money is short at the moment and I have my own people to feed.
  • Jezebel 2012/12/13 18:55:44
    I tip based on how good their service is, not the time of the year.

  • Car1u5~PWCM~JLA 2012/12/13 18:16:50
    I am always a pretty generous tipper having delivered pizza's for a little while i know how much tips matter for those people.
  • gizzibag 2012/12/13 18:01:15
    but thats because i tip very well already
  • TommyB 2012/12/13 17:57:59
    In restaurants, I tip well above 15% regardless of the season. For other services, e.g., car washes, lawnkeepers, carpet cleaners, hotel/motel maids, etc, I have to wag it. My wags, however, are usually generous.

    Those thieving liberals don't need anymore of my assistance!

    There should have been a choice for IT DEPENDS. I always give a 20% tip if I receive good service at a restaurant, a beauty salon, a car detailing business, etc. However, depending on whether or not I can afford it, I try to tip more, maybe 25% or even 30%, during the holiday season. This is especially true with people or businesses I use frequently all year long. Larger tips are extremely welcome by those who work in the restaurant industry, because they are paid very low wages and must count on their tip money just to get by. The way I see it, all of the people who provide good service to me, whatever their jobs, have families, too, and they deserve bigger tips around the holiday season so that they can afford to buy gifts for their loved ones and give them a Merry Christmas!

    Being a restaurant owner and knowing how hard hos[pitality folks work for their tips, I always tip 30% year-round. On a couple of rare occasions I have even left 50%. But my son leaves 50% almost all the time.
  • Alexis<3 2012/12/13 17:24:29
    I know it's mean but I don't ever tip. I worked as a waitress once and got fed up with the mentality of food servers that feel entitled to some big tip and get angry when someone tips them less than they expected. One time I even had a co-worker that wanted to lock someone in because she over heard them saying they wouldn't tip her and went up to them and said, "If you don't have money to be tip you shouldn't be going out to eat." That's all they would talk about. It really got on my nerves. Yes, it is part of their earnings but still you don't have to act that way about it.
  • SezMichael 2012/12/13 17:23:40
    No extra tip just because it's Christmas. You're not a friend of mine, and tipping isn't a gift. It has to be earned with good service. It isn't that hard to get a good tip out of me. Just don't give me attitude or spill something on me and you're getting 20% anyway.
