Tipping revisited (not cow tipping, tipping for service) The other day my DD (17) wanted to get her nails done in the middle of it she remembered she forgot her wallet so I had to pay for it, it was $30 well I put a tip of $5 dollars in it too. She is now saying that she only owes me $30. She wasn't going to tip. I say if you get your nails done you tip. Do you tip the nail person? Was $5 not the right amount?
