Katie, you're very nice and generous! I like that.

We on the other hand...
well, the hair dresser ( I go about once a year) gets tipped at the time of service.
I just go to Supercuts and have a trim... I've never had my hair cut by the same person more than once.

Wait staff gets tipped ( if they are good) at the time of service.

Mail girl, garbage guys... they don't get a tip at all.
No housecleaner (boo-hoo)
No gardener ( bigger boo-hoo!!) but, If we used either I'd tip the cleaner because I'm sure there'd be some type of personal relationship but... all the gardeners around here already charge about three times what they are worth. So, no tip would be given.

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on. Robert Frost

I tip my hairdresser and the lady who does my nails, I also leave something extra for the guy who knows my coffee and bagel order by heart, he gets me through my days and a few years ago, I reduced my tip amount by about 5 dollars per person , i also gave them a baked something, be it cookies or fudge, and bought toys for tots... giving really is better than receiving :)

lead me not into temptation for you are slow and will only get in the way
