Is it normal/legal to add a mandatory %18 tip?
there is thread on this, but they can charge you whatever they want and call it whatever they want

Some stores only do it for larger parties. Some do this as they are "worried" the large tables will not tip adequately.

I get that, but i'm talking about everyone, even less than 6.
It should be 12% at most, if they want to do it.
And the waiters have nothing to work for.
Iv'e heard in some of these places the waiters don't even get all 18%, that's got to be illegal!

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Day camp tips; I don't see why it's necessary to tip camp counselor when day camp costs so much. I know some rely on tips but after the huge camp bill why is it the parents burden?

Maybe look at it as if your child was a camp counselor. My daughter receives gifts from about 30% of the parents.

Welcome to America.
We've allowed it to come to the point where we let businesses/establishments get away with paying their employees less then minimum wage and passing on the "expense" of paying said employees to the consumer.
Day camps, heck even overnight camps for that matter have decided to join the bandwagon. They view paying staff members as an unnecessary expense and try to do without.
It now on you my friend to do the "right thing" and make sure these kids get paid.
Maybe look at it as if your child was a camp counselor. My daughter receives gifts from about 30% of the parents.
There's tipping, or giving a gift to show a token of appreciation for the service the counselor has provided and the hopefully wonderful experience they have given your child, more so then just what camp gives.
Then there's the note that camps send out with suggested tip amount. That's like restaurants sticking the minimum 15% or 18% onto a bill.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Definitely hear you and my wife too used to be a counselor. I hope you warned your daughter that tips may not be given.

100% against that.

DW & I must be doing something right since there was no need to warn her.

When do you tip valet at a hotel?

When you drop off the car for the first time? Every time they bring the car? The final time that they'll be bringing the car?
