So it seems people only tip the valet parking guy.
If you want "extra" service for your room or something else. It may make sense to tip the housekeeper, waiter, concierge etc.

Reminds me how when I was newly wed, we went out to eat, and when we asked for the check the waitress told us some random guys paid for us.

That never happened to me (and never has since). I felt like such a celebrity. I left the place and then it hit me that I still shoulda left a tip. I still kinda regret it


Happened to us once when I was expecting my first kid. We saw someone who had known my husband in high school and just stopped at their table to say hello. When we were ready to pay the waiter told us that they had paid for our meal. So sweet! and yes we did leave a nice tip.

Well i live up a flight of stairs and a "sharp" turn. So was feeling a little more generous.

We had a piano delivered and they charged and extra $150 because of the stairs and turn. Crazy.
