Default I just got an email from Capital One

asking to check a transaction. Did I really mean to leave a 30% tip? Yes, I did. I always overtip. You can tell I've worked in the food industry. Is anyone else a big tipper because of that? Also I think it's really cool that they are pro-actively checking up on me. I've had 4 instances of fraud on different accounts in the last year and a half.

For that reason, and also because I appreciate the service they provide and how hard they work to deliver it. That's what happens when your sister was a Head Waitress for
Big Boy and you yourself are a commissioned salesperson.

Trying to watch what I eat, I don't spend as much as I used to. I ask myself "How much would the wait staff make if someone else was at this table?"

If you have had problems in the past, you love it.
If you haven't had problems, it is an annoyance.

My lowest ever tip was a nickel (he deserved it). My highest ever tip was 100% (we didn't realize they were closed).

Whenever possible, Mrs. TGK & I tip in cash--lowers the credit card average that the IRS uses to monitor shenanigans.

I usually tip 20%, although I don't eat out much now because no job. And I try to give the cash to the server because I've heard too many stories of people stealing tips off of tables and I don't trust people.

I forgot to tell the bank when I drove cross-country a couple years ago. I woke up to my bank card not working. Had to spend a while on the phone getting it sorted out. My bad.

And in workplaces that charge the bank fees back to the workers ([cough][cough]cab companies[cough][cough]) the workers appreciate it even more.

I generally tip 20% now, due specifically to this web site...

Hubby and I usually tip 20% but have gone as high as 50% for exceptional service. We also "thank" favorite servers for special occasions (weddings, graduations, etc, or if we find they are moving on to new employment) with gift cards or gifts. One of our favorite servers at our favorite restaurant was moving up state, and mentioned how he and his sons were looking forward to doing some camping, so we got him a $100 gift card from Cabelas.
