In today’s Things Men Should Know segment, we will focus on the art of tipping. What is appropriate and what is not:
Bartender: You should tip $1 per drink. If you have a $100 bar tab, it is ridiculous to tip 15-20%. $1 per drink is a safe bet. Drinks are overpriced anyway.
Airport Valet: $1 per bag. If bags are heavy, consider an addition.
Car Valet: $2-$5. Depends how generous you’re feeling.
Doorman: $1 per bag.
Movers: This may be the most important person to help. If you’ve ever hired a moving company, you know how much easier it made life for you. Tip generously. I say $20 per mover. Or minimum $10 per mover but feed them some beer as well.
Food Delivery: 5-10%. Half the time there’s a delivery fee/tip included so pay attention.
Barber/stylist: 10-15%. Tip higher around holidays.
Taxi Driver: Literally the last person on the planet you probably want to tip… Me too. I say 5-10% but they expect 10-20%. Stick with 5!
Shoe shine: $2-$5.
