At a restaurant do you tip or not? Have you ever taken off a ‘discretionary’ tip? Do you hate it when a restaurant adds an extra service charge to the bill for a group?
For reference we only tip when the staff have been helpful/friendly, the food has exceeded our expectations, the service was great or we’re feeling generous. We often will also ask how the tip is split with staff and then tip accordingly. What really annoys us is when friends/family insist on giving a tip when the service/food has been crap.
If you always tip, do you also tip bus drivers, electricians, newspaper boys/girls, the person behind the counter at smiths…..? thought not…. In fact we might start doing that instead of waiters/waitresses just to watch peoples reactions!
