The Logan wrote:My tipping philosophy is, if you're getting drinks served at the bar by the bartender, then you do the whole $1 per drink thing because they're serving drinks to dozens of people constantly. Especially if they're simple orders like a beer or a basic cocktail. If it's one of those fancy places where they're doing witchcraft to your drink you kinda gotta tip accordingly to the 20% rule, same with drinks that come with exorbitant price tags. If you're still going to be stingy on an expensive drink like a $200 scotch, the least you could do is 10%. Tipping according to the $1 per drink rule on something that expensive is rude.
If you're getting served drinks at a table by a waiter or waitress you tip 20%. They didn't make the food, but you'll tip them 20% for bringing it. I don't see how that shouldn't apply for drinks too
this is kinda how i play it
if i'm in vegas (and for some reason am not being comped) or wrigley or something and paying $10+ for what should be a $2-3 crappy beer, i'm not tipping 20%. i'm tipping a buck per or rounding up to the nearest $5 or something, if that applies.
other than that, i'm a very consistent 20% tipper.
re: TT, I tip the woman who has cut my hair for the last 20 years $5 even though she owns the place and sets her own price. i'm not sure what's expected there (vs. when the person is just an employee of some place like sports clips or something).
i'd never think of ordering a $200 glass of scotch, but if i did, i'd imagine i'd tip 15-20% there.
do you guys tip on your rideshare rides? i always do at least a little. i've dabbled in driving on weekends as a side hustle...maybe 50 rides total, and i've gotten tips on maybe 5 of them.
