I had a question about tipping and stumbled across this VERY comprehensive guide. Yeah the economy sucks and we’re all poor, but it’s the holidays, so let’s all play nice.
I’ve waited a lot of tables and spent about as much time in Vegas, plus I believe in karma. If the service is horrible, I still leave something if I notice the kitchen or management had something to do with the problem. On the rare occasion my server in a restaurant really screws up and doesn’t try to make it right, I will absolutely stiff them on a tip. They shouldn’t be waiting tables. I am helping them move on, seriously. For great service, I have left 40% and when I am in a large group that gets really great service, I lobby with everyone to tip higher. It is well deserved. The people are working hard to serve us!
I tried to tip the cashier at In N Out burger as I was leaving vegas once. I love tipping. What comes around goes around.
