Lol that's what we did when we moved from Germany back to the states. We weren't allowed to tip them since they were contracted by the Army so we just ordered pizzas and sandwiches and provided beer and other beverages.

At a restaurant - 20% unless the service was horrible. The least I'd give is 10%
At a salon - 20-30% because I get a discounted service since I used to work there.
Cab driver - usually $5 depending how far the ride is.
I don't order takeout.

I usually take them coming back from a party drunk as hell. Probably why the tip is so high lol.

Well guess I won't go out to eat where people get paid $4 an hour. Wtf....is that even legal? Servers here get at least minimum wage. If one person tips below 20% it's really not that big of a deal, at least they tip. Both my SIL's were waitresses and they made about the same as DH did back when he made $13 an hour. Most nights they brought home over $100 in tips.

It may start at 7.25 here but that is the lowest I've ever heard of.

You're supposed to tip between 15-20% so that's what I do, sometimes more because DH and I both work in the service industry and we appreciate big tips so we pay it forward.

Since I am a server, I usually tip 20%, unless it was exceptional service, or not so great then I adjust. I have only not left a tip one time. For pizza I do 5$, and for carry out 5-6$. Same there with adjusting based on service.
