Re: Tipping the Bellboy, Waitress etc How does it work in the US?? And Why??
Here in NYC you tip EVERYbody. I expect to tip the waitstaff, bellman, valet, concierge, but the guy at Sears who brings the TV out to the car? Come on, that's his job.
Anybody who assists you with ANYthing expects a tip. Anybody who provides any mundane service or favor expects a tip. I can't think of any rediculous examples at the moment but there have been numerous times I've thought "This person is expecting a tip? Are you kidding me?" Maybe this is just NYC, which, at times, doesn't seem congruent with the rest of the country in many things, especially those involving money.
"Hey Johnny what're you rebelling against?"
