Are rich people lousy tippers? A NY Times blog raises the question and delves into some reporting, research and anecdotes on the subject. But what about here? Waiters, waitresses, bartenders, etc. be heard. And what do others think? I suspect Arkies are lousy tippers, generous though they may be with church tithing.
What's the right tip in a restaurant? I've gone to 20 percent of the bill, except in the case of inexcusably execrable service, because it's easy math. Would you tip a cab driver? Leave money in a hotel room for the maid? What do you give someone who totes your bag in a hotel? Do you tip the newspaper carrier? Other service people?
