    You seem to tip just about everyone in Florida from housemaids to waiters to bellboys but...
    Do you tip the barman for pouring you a drink?

    It's ok, I'm chilled, just going with the flow I've even got into the habit of taking a load of low denomination dollar bills with me out there because I was always getting caught out not having any spare dollars for tips until we went shopping and got change.

    So it's a new tip-friendly (grrrrrr) Keith

    I hate, loathe and despise the practice of tipping. :sigh;

    But yes, we do tip the barkeep (usually around 15-20%) and the servers always. Servers start at 20%. If there is a problem that will interfere with the tip, we speak with the manager and let her/him know that there was an issue.

    I tip my hairdresser. :sigh; I WON'T tip at counter service even if there is the "begging jar" with TIPS written on it and dollars in it. I really dislike that! There was one at the Hampton Inn this past stay! For the continental breakfast mind! NO! I did not tip.

    I tip cabbies and porters too. Thank heaven Publix has a prominent no tipping policy or I'd have to tip the person who bags the groceries!

    When did the US become a nation of beggars? It used to be a matter of honor that we DIDN'T buy into the tipping "culture."

    Oh, and the pedicurist gets a tip too. And the facial person and the massage person.
