As the mother of a dog Groomer, I understand the importance of tipping. I have found that today's generation is not as accustomed to tipping as their parents. I think many people do not understand that some workers rely heavily on tips to make a fair and honest wage. If they did not get tips, they would make less than minimum wage. It is never a good idea to "save money" by not tipping. Here is a guide to tipping.

Airport baggage handlers: $1 per bag, more for heavier bags.

Bartender: $1 to $2 per drink is customary, or 15 to 20 percent if you run a tab.

Beauty: In a salon, tip 15 to 20 percent for haircuts, nail care, facials, waxing, etc. Shampooers should get $2 to $5.

Cabs: For fares less than $10, $1 to $3. More than $10, 10 percent.

Coffee shops: Most people will tip up to $1.00 per beverage.

Delivery people: 15%-20% should be given.

Dining: A 15- to 20-percent tip and the tip should be on the pre-tax pre coupon total. rom everything we have read, you should not omit the tip if given less than satisfactory service. The tip should be decreased so it is known that you are displeased.

Pet Groomers-15%-20%

Dry Cleaner: Tipping generally isn't required.

Fast food: No tipping required so far.

Hotels: At least $1 or $2 per bag for the bellhop when you arrive and when you leave, and $2 to $3 a night for the hotel maid (just leave the cash daily in your room). a couple of dollars for a doorman hailing a cab for you.

Massage therapist: 15 %.

Parking: $1 for someone who retrieves your car in a daily parking garage. A valet should be tipped $2 to $3
