Have You Found Yourself Wondering How Far Have We Have Taken Tipping?

The standard tipping is anywhere from 18% to 25%. I try to tip the standard 20% no matter where I go. Yes, even when the service is subpar.

One thing I have been struggling with lately is bad service, I get it we all have bad days. I worked in the restaurant industry for over 15 years and had rough days where I couldn't get it together. I remember there were nights when I would lay in bed remembering that I didn't get someone's extra dressing or a refill on a drink and the customer didn't remind me for some reason. I remember being grateful for those customers who showed me so much grace.

I Don't Ever Want to Be That Person Who Short Changes Someone.

If you are a server in Louisiana you know that Louisiana doesn't have its own tip and wage laws. So this means that employers can pay a server as little as $2.13 per hour if the employee earns enough in tips to reach the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. If it is a very slow day at work and the employee doesn't earn at least $5.12 per hour in tips, the employer must pay the difference. Tipping your server well is crucial in Louisiana.

Should You Tip Everywhere You Go?

I recently experienced getting asked to tip at a self-serve station and it threw me for a loop. I went to a self-checkout at the airport and paid $8 for a bottle of water, when I went to pay I was asked to tip. Who am I tipping? Am I supposed to tip at a self-checkout now? Are we supposed to tip when we get fast food? Are we just tipping every single time we purchase something now?
