Tipping extra around the holidays is customary
Many of us will tip 20 percent after dining out, but during the holiday giving season, did you know 25 percent or more-- depending on your budget-- is more customary?

    Here is a tip for you; stop paying people to tell you what you don't want to hear. Just print it so we who know how to read can pick and chose the topics without the sponsers controlling the media. Thats better than a wooden nickle.

    My wife and I always give 20%; but it would be nice to replace the waiters and/or waitresses with a computerized menu. We could order exactly what we would like and go get it exactly when it is ready. Best of all, we wouldn't have to pay anyone for bringing our food to us when they get back from their smoke break.

    I tip year round based on the service, not the holiday of the month. A tip is a show of gratitude for the level of service, as expected or above and beyond! Gratuities are a reward for exceptional performance. They are not a deferred to the consumer, and expected payroll option that alleviates the employers from paying for performance to keep and reward employees. Pay your good employees what they are worth and I'll give them their bonus, regardless of the season! Depending of course on how well they perform their job based on my experience with them. Heck, I might even hire them and take them from you if they are "exceptional." Servers take a hint! You might get a raise you don't have to ask for.

    The problem is some folks expect a tip without doing anything to earn it.
