    I don't think we should tip for someone doing the job that they were hired for. Plain and simple.

    Cruise ships. :yes: Didn't think of them, Slowhand. We tip there. We prefer the cruise lines that add the tip automatically, so we don't have to mess about with the envelopes (and scraping up the leftover bits of cash! :eek: ) at the end of a cruise. We don't much use cash on them at all, eh?

    What an enormous breadth of viewpoints - I love it!

    Funny you mention cruise line - I was just listening to the ItM podcast which aired an interview with a Disney Cruise Line cast member who said a comment on the guest feedback card is worth so much more than a tip.

    I used to tip my barber every time, then we had a conversation about his field and horses and I realised I would never earn that kind of money - I've never tipped him since!
