A friend of mine quit his job managing a medium sized retail store (15 employees) with a salary of about $35,000 a year, to take a job as a bellhop in a hotel. With his tips, he makes about the same money. Doesn't seem right.

I kind of felt bad the other day, but not really. I got my car washed and the guy walks up and hands me my keys, and I say "Hey thanks, Man, I appreciate it." He says, "No I appreciate it, I enjoyed working on your car." And, all I could think was, you enjoyed detailing my car? That is the most fake thing I have ever heard, and I didn't tip him. I know, I know, that's wrong, but I hate it when people obviously kiss my a$$ to get my money. I just like it when they kiss my a$$ and don't expect anything. That's when the big bucks roll out! People who are genuine get much bigger tips with me. People who try to make it obvious that they should be tipped now will get little to nothing. Crappy service gets the same, little to nothing. Exceptional service warrants 25% to 50% tip, and I don't have a problem with that. Treat me right and I'll treat you right. What's that saying....do unto others....
