Very generous
ďI have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success. Great things come from hard work

But the money is still a lot relative to the driverís salary, and relative to the amount of work heís doing. Heís not getting paid more because itís high end, and you shouldnít have to tip more either.

Trust me, heíd rather get the $2 than nothing, he might be driving a Rolls Royce but heís alot further removed from that than you (the guest) are.

Just my opinion, obviously. If you want to be generous, tip away. Just be wary of lo sichanem.

Is an 18% gratuity tacked onto my bill for takeout/pickup at an upscale NYC eatery reasonable?

No. Not at all. Takeout/Pickup should be 0% tacked on or added. That's sort of the whole point of you picking it up.

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?
I still don't really have an answer to this. Recently I stayed somewhere the bellhop was same as the valet, so tipped him when he brought stuff to my room at the beginning of stay and again when my car was loaded at the end of the stay.

I tip my barber $5, she works with my schedule and does a great job, its anyways $25 with tip.

My cleaning lady work fast as hell, I give her $20, its usually a bit over an hour

coffee im conflicted, is the 2-minute cold brew job worth 1$ tip? not imho, maybe 0.50. yes it matters bc I go out to coffee daily and just feel like the coffee person would be making $65 an hour if we all tip 1$

Also bartender?

I'm not cheap and I know many who struggle, but I know waiters who mAKE 100K A year..
