    It's the first time I've seen it (Tarpon Springs) but it didn't impress me one bit. The company I work for uses Hilton Hotels and that was the only one available (they aren't bad though, if you book suites). I don't even like their silly breakfasts!

    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.
    Argh! I truly despise tipping as well. It is such a horrid custom. Oh well, I tend to overtip to compensate for the fact that I hate tipping. So I guess everyone loves me

    Our local grocery chain, Ukrops, has a strict no tipping policy and they carry the groceries out and load them into your car. It's one of my favorite grocery stores.

    That's another jar I won't fill.

    If there isn't a no tipping policy, it's expected. That's what bugs me, the expectation.

    When we were in California I tipped the Bell Captain so much, I could have spent another week at the hotel! LOL. Not quite that much, but you get the idea. He was really nice though and did any number of special requests for me.

    I guess at the end of the day it depends on who you ask....if you ask the grocery bagger, the answer is probably YES!!

    Only if they provide extra service, such as loading your purchases into your vehicle. Most of our grocery stores have strict no-gratuities policies. I do tip if they load something really heavy for me. It's their option to accept or refuse it (and it certainly won't make them rich!), but it makes them aware that I appreciate the assistance!
