Millennials, Don’t Forget to Tip Your Waitress
Tipping can be confusing for some. How do you know if you’re over-tipping, just being cheap or what to do overseas?
These days it can feel like we’re being asked to tip all the time. Even grabbing your morning latte calls for a pre-service tip. I asked a friend who confessed, “I feel like I have to. There are people behind me that will think I’m a jerk if I don’t!” I agree and often pony up out of guilt to avoid judgement.
Gratuity has become a source of resentment among customers, particularly millennials who were named “America’s worst tippers,” by Fortune last year. Ouch.
Thankfully, ABC 7 Eyewitness News brings us a brief run-through of proper tipping etiquette by Consumer Reports Money Editor, Margot Gilman.
