1. $20 each
2. $5 or $10 depending how difficult I thought the job was
3. $1-2 to the guy getting my car
Thanks I tipped $40 each for the movers and they walked away grumbling under their breath... I thought $40 was towards the generous end since they did a good job.

How much and how often do you tip parking attendents at a lot that you use every day?
If you don't care why would you comment?

You should post location as the expectations differ by country and perhaps by city.

Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

I think a 1x yr holiday gift in the $50 range is classy, especially if you are on first name basis
Room service bringing something you requested, what would you tip?
$1 each time
How much for a <2 mile drive in house car at Park Hyatt NYC or Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills?
Don't really understand this one
How much do you tip your flight attendant?

+1 on these numbers. Valet might be a little more depending on the location.

  • 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.
