Besides a waiter and hairstylist, who else do you tip on a regular basis?
Waiters only...I'm just never in a position to tip otherwise. And besides, I think tipping has gone waaayyy too far when Subway Sandwich Artists have tip jars.
The delivery boy who brings the pizza, the man who keeps an eye on our car (weekends at the club), man in the gas station,
I don´t remember nobody else.
Pretty much just waiters and hairstylists. We'll tip the delivery guy if we order food and if we use the valet or coat check at the casino we might give them a dollar or two. Occasionally I'll tip at Dunkin Donuts (just a little bit in the change jar) if the server is really friendly or I have to give a big order, but for the most part I don't because I don't think handing me my cup of coffee warrants tips, to be honest.
I throw change in the cup for my butcher at the farmer's market and the coffee shop, mostly because I went to elementary school with the girl that owns it (even though we are both about 3 hours from home) and I know they just opened the business and I want to help them out. I would tip for delivery as well. If I go somewhere my students work, like the smoothie place, I will throw a little into the tip cup too. I figure they can use it. And I tip any beautician, not just hair, but eyebrows, manicurist, etc.
I always tip my hairstylist.... big time..... and I sleep with her on a regular basis......
She's the one who decides if I'm getting a number 4, 5, 6 or 7.... The number 7 would be close in length to a Brett Favre cut.....The whole procedure takes about five minutes......:lol::lol::lol:
Oh yeah ...... my hairstylist is my fantastically wonderful WIFE!!!
I tip the pizza delivery person and waiters and waitresses.
I think I sometimes will tip my hairstylist when I pay with debit and the thing comes up to ask what the tip size should be... makes me realize I'm supposed to tip :lol:
My last hairstylist didn't get a tip... (nor will I be returning)... she lectured me the whole time about how I was getting my hair cut too short and that it would look awful.
I never get delivery, so the waiter/waitress & my hairstylist are the only 2 people I tip.
nail salon manicurist
My mom lived in foster care--and I tipped her caregiver big time.
Major, I cut my hubby's hair, and funny thing, I get paid the same way your wife gets paid.
My husband tips our garbage man on the weekends by having a beer with him. Usually the guy is there around 10, and always has a 12 pack of Old Mud with him.

My husband is retired Air Force, so we go to the commissary every four to six weeks to load up on groceries. The baggers work strictly for tips. So, we tip about $5 or $6 to the bagger.
Blue........ free haircuts aren't always "free."......
Depending on if I take me dogs with me somewhere, like to the vet, or if I'm helped with bags, I tip cabs. If not one of those two things, I don't really see the point in leaving a tip.
Of course, waiters
dog-sitter (when I needed daily walks, I'd leave a "thank you for taking such good care of my baby" tip every few months)
at Christmas we give a gift of cookies or a bottle Asti Spumante to: the mailman, the guy who runs our mailbox center, the gardener, and the plumber
Housekeeping at hotels.
Hotel van drivers.
Hairstylist/barbers (for my son)
