I believe if you’re dining out at a restaurant, you should always tip your server 20% of the bill–if you have no complaints about their service.
If you are left thirsty without any water at anytime and need to track down your server for a water refill, I feel a 15% tip should be good enough for your negligent server.
If your server just brings you your food and forgets about you and is nowhere to be found when you need extra napkins, I don’t think a 10% tip would be so bad for him/her.
But, I don’t believe in giving no tip at all when you are dining out. Unless everything was absolutely and completely horrible–you shouldn’t just leave a zero dollar tip, you should also leave the premises, don’t eat there, don’t pay for your meal at all.
If you’re getting your nails, eyebrows, hair etc. done: if you love it, tip 20% or more! I’ve witnessed so many ladies at nail salons recite, “ooh I love it, thank you so much” and tip a measly $5 after a full mani and pedi sesh…how rude! If you don’t love it, don’t tip. Yep. No tip!! They shouldn’t even make you pay for your service, in my opinion, but some places still will.
