Tipping

This cabbie in NY asked me “No tip?” when I didn’t add a tip for taking me somewhere.

WTF, do people tip people just for doing their damn job?

Ridiculous custom, just pay the damn workers what they’re worth!!

Tell me Pasha, what does this word 'modern' even mean?

Lol why didn’t you uber it’s cheaper.

I love my cheese. I got to have my cheddar.

stop being cheap/poor like nerdy and move to high class like ohai

When I first came to the great nation of US and A, I didn’t tip. I thought it was a stupid custom and I still think it it. But after looking into how many service sector people are paid I started tipping. 

If you're the first out the door, that's not called panicking

I went to Vietnam for the first time last week and took a couple tours.  Wasn’t sure what the tipping policy was so I googled it.  The advice was so idiotic, obviously written by tour operators.  They were recommending tips higher than the guides make in a month…  Tipping is stupid and turns ordinary commercial encounters into stressful bs.

Don't be a tough guy. Don't be a fool. I will call you later.

I agree. Same thing with haggling. Went to Marocco once. Worst shopping experience ever. Even buying tea from a market vendor is a battle when you’re given a price that’s 10x the fair price and it’s up to you to haggle it down.

Hell ya.  Shopping in local markets about as much fun as a root canal.  Why on earth anyone would trade precious vacation time for haggling I have no idea.  Just last week I was buying some fruit in a local market in Vietnam, the previous day the price was x and this day it was 5x…so I said I give you x.  The guy went nuts and started yelling telling me to leave…of course arguing is even more stupid so I walked away aggravated and feeling like a dummy for wasting my time and not going to grocery store paying a little more.

do you guys tip escorts?

Tipping is by far a better system if it actually reflects service 

I’m not rich by any means, maybe hood rich… but as I’ve made more money over the years, it’s bothered me a lot less. 

I don’t ever see myself ever tipping more than it cost for a lap dance to open and pour a bottle of wine though, no matter how expensive that bottle is.

We’re gonna win so much, you may even get tired of winning. And you’ll say, 'Please, please. It’s too much winning. We can’t take it anymore. Mr. President, it’s too much.' And I’ll say, 'No, it isn’t!' We have to keep winning!

how about those squeegee kids that clean windshields on traffic lights, do you ever tip them for their valuable services?

10% bad service. 15% ok service 20% great service. is standard practice.

give or take 5 percent!

I love my cheese. I got to have my cheddar.

20 percent is pretty average TBH 

^this is true it really depends. not to be racist. but it honestly depends on a person’s race/age from what i hear.

You could have been cheap and just hit 10% on the screen.
