To piggyback off of yesterday’s helpful hints regarding invitation mailing, I thought we could cover some of the finer points of tipping.  Most of us are familiar with the customary 15-20% tip for a server at a restaurant but there are countless other experiences where how much and what to tip can come up.
Here are a few general guidelines:
-If you are in doubt about tipping, don’t be afraid to ask.  If you are getting a sofa delivered, call the store and ask if tipping is customary.  At a hair salon, ask the receptionist.  Asking is helpful because there are certain organizations and situations where tipping could be discouraged or even seen as demeaning.
-Tip on the pre-tax amount.  Not the total bill
-Be discreet in your tipping.  Flashing bills and making a big show is definitely in poor taste.
-Money is the tip of choice in most cases but around the holidays for example, a tip can be substituted with a small gift.
