Tend to tip higher just because you find "them" more attractive? Well, let us know.

I tip, how much? It depends on how their service is, if their service is fine and the food was good. I tip them more, if it was bad on both, I don't tip them (very rare though, even though the service and food are bad, I normally still do tip them.) My tip usually range from $3 to $5 depending whether it's a high class restaurant or some cheap ass one.

I tip nearly everywhere I go that has people serving me.

Hmmm, I also sometimes tend to tip higher if I see a cute waitress, hey, what can I say? I'm a guy and I like having fun! Especially a cute BARTENDER, my god, I go nuts. But I usually only give more tips to cute female bartenders, not so much waitresses (sometimes no matter how cute they are, they still get the same amount.)

Yourself?

There's a certain formula to tiping, but I usually go overboard. I tip on service, and sometimes i'll tip if I enjoyed looking at the person. Once I gave a waiter an extra tip because I liked his ass. either way, I porbably tip more than I should, but I don't care, I like making people's day w/ a heavy tip.

Sometimes, I end up doing that too. I usually complement the waiter/waitress with some medium tips. I don't tip all too often, but when I do, I try to give something substantial that would make us both happy.

I always tip. I tip at least 15%, but if the waiter/waitress is especially friendly and helpful, I'll tip more. Waiters/waitresses have a tough job. They are on their feet all day, and having to deal with assholes and such. If they are efficient at their job, they deserve a good tip.

I normally try to tip about 15 percent. My dad told me a long time ago that 15 percent is the norm. I'm not too sure now if that's considered over-tipping or under-tipping. I try to always tip since, a lot of waiters/waitresses jobs don't really pay much and they get the majority of their salary off tips. Unless, they're total jerks. xD

There's actually a percentage? Wtf? I just tip how much I want. I don't follow no percentage, though like I said my bare minimum is $3 and most is $5 and sometimes I give $10 but if you're lucky. Hot bartenders(mostly)/waitresses get the "extra" if you guys get what I mean.

I tip based on service. And also depending on the total of my meal. Generally I tip $3.

I tip if le serveur has been nice to me and not forgotten anything. I usually round the numbers up, but if it's less than 10kr, just under 2$ or just over 1€ I give the poor thing some more. One exception is waiters in italian restaurants talking italian to you because they serve italian food, then it's no money for that heartbreaker... beee.gif

I tip 20% unless they really piss me off. I work in the restaurant industry so I know how it is. It's there main source of income, all there hourly rate really does is pay taxes.

I work in the taxi business and my husband use to be a server, so I tip way higher than most. If the service at a resturanut is shitty, I tip $5. If it was good, I tip $10. If the food is crappy, it's not the servers fault.

If I take a cab, it depends on how the driver is. If they are really cool, I tip $7-$12, if they are asses, they get $3.

I don't tip. Rarely I do, when the service is excellent or the food was good or (generally) when I don't have change. But usually I don't tip. It is not something usual here.

^In some countries they just don't have the custom of tipping and some find it offensive if you tip, like in the HSBC advert??

When I go out with my friends we usually fish out our spare change as tips. With my parents, they always tip depending on the service.

I usually tip 15~20% of the total amount of my spending on services. Mainly for restaurants and salons.

Me and my old highschool buddies used to play this game called "tip and run" in restaurants. The purpose of the game is to get the waiter pissed off. What we do is after done paying for a meal, we left the money on the table where it is hard to find and then runs as fast as lightning out of the restaurant. Caught a few waiters with a dirty look on their faces. xD Good times...

I usually do around 20%, but it would go down to 15% probably at a nicer restaurant.

I think its a cultural habit too. From reading most of the other posts here, from members being Americans/Canadians, I notice that all of them participate in tipping. In Australia, its quite a strange practice, and isn't very common at all (especially at restaurants and pubs).
