There's probably been a time or two in your life when you've gone out to dinner with a large group of friends and nobody at the dinner table had any clue as to what the proper tip amount to leave was. It's not something to stress out about, as many people find themselves in that exact same scenario everyday. The rules about tipping have changed over the course of the years to the point that not everybody is sure what the standard tipping procedure is.
If you have a big night out planned away from your Sterling Edmonton home where you'll be dining at some fancy high end restaurant and don't want to be embarrassed when the bill comes then just keep on reading because we'll be offering you some tipping guidelines. It used to be that the standard tip was 15% of your bill. However, the times have changed and not every situation where you might be leaving a tip is the same.
With the cost of living increasing on a yearly basis 15% doesn't really seem a whole lot when you look at your bill, unless of course you went out to eat as part of a group dentist Toronto convention and the bill was massive. Nowadays 20% has become the new 15%. If you aren't automatically sure of what that would be just look at your bill and divide by five. The answer you get is the tip you should leave. If you dined using coupons or received free items you can always be extra generous and tip based on what the bill would have been if you had paid for those items. It's not something you have to do but it would be a nice gesture.
It's also a good idea to increase the amount of the tip you leave behind if you dined with a large group of people or placed many special requests. Your server probably went out of their way to ensure you and your fellow Toronto mortgage brokers had a great dining experience so why not make them feel a little more happier than usual once they get off their shift?
Cases where you might tip less include ordering take out or delivery food. In instances like that there wasn't a whole lot of work that went into bringing you your order so you can bump the tip down into the 5-10% range. If you take out your fellow commercial photographer Ottawa co-workers to lunch at an all you can eat self serve establishment you can also leave less of a tip, depending on how much service you received.
Other scenarios you might feel like tipping include functions where Toronto caterers work, at a bar, valet parking, at the hair salon and taxi rides. The tip range for those situations can be anywhere from 5 to 15% of your total bill and depends on the quality of the service. Minus the caterers of course as they're already being paid so a tip isn't required.
