Hey guys, me and my cousin were debating yesterday about how much to tip out barbers. I explained to him the tip amount varies depending on situation. Usually 20% of a bill.
But what would you guys tip in these situations:
$15 haircut at the barber
$30 bill at dennys or steak and shake
An employee replacing 4 tires at a independent tire shop
Pizza delivery guy
This would kinda give me a better understanding and might save me some money by not extra tipping

Rest is whatever at the moment
$30 bill at dennys or steak and shake - 20% or a little more if good service (I used to wait tables, so I tend to always tip well)
An employee replacing 4 tires at a independent tire shop - would not think of tipping in this situation, but if the guy is helping me out in a pinch or staying later than his shift or after hours to help me out - $20
Pizza delivery guy - 20%, but no less than $5-$6 regardless of the bill. Those guys pay for their own gas, and they will remember you next time

$5-6 for a pizza delivery guy? Really that much?
I dont order too many pizzas but when I do, I usually get 1 large pizza that comes out to $11-$15. Thats more like 40%+ if i pay the guy $5+. And the store is only like a mile away.
$30 bill at dennys or steak and shake - Around 15%, probably closer to 20% at higher end restaurant.
An employee replacing 4 tires at a independent tire shop - I would not normally tip in this situation
Pizza delivery guy - Minimum $3.00, if it's a larger order then $5.00. I don't do the percentage thing for deliveries.
no one else
certainly not counter help
Where to begin with this...
I wonder how much of a tip he wants for his butt tomorrow?
Unless she gives a happy ending on your head, $60 seems a bitt tooooo much :Bike
But it has become our culture.
Restaurants I tip 20% of the bill not the bill + tax. I'm not tipping an additional 20% of what I'm paying the tax man... Our tax is 7% so 3x the tax is about what they get. Poor service will drop that down to 2x.
Tip the tire changer? lol No. Same goes for the mail man and garbage man. Besides they get paid well and have a better retirement than I do...
Delivery gets $3-5 depending on how much I ordered, how quick I get it and their attitude when they get to the door.
You are a dude right? $60 for a hair cut?
$30 bill at dennys or steak and shake - $8
An employee replacing 4 tires at a independent tire shop - $0 unless there was something unusual
Pizza delivery guy - $5 typically

It's just what I think it's worth to me to have an order delivered.
Yes I am a dude and I get my hair cut every two weeks unless I am on vacation or out of the country. The lady who cuts my hair actually reduced the price due to my frequent visits. She normally charges $65.00 and is worth every penny, if I am unable to nake it to her shop she will come to my house.
Pizza Delivery guy gets ~$4-6 depending on how it works out... Normally the Papa Johns is ~$15 & he gets a $20...
Restaurants ~15-25% depending on service, but we tip at least ~$2pp even if the bill is only ~$6-7/ea...
No Tip for the Garage/Mechanic unless they're going 'above & beyond'...
All jokes aside. Can you post a pic of your $60 cut? I get a $15 cut every 2 months or so with tape ups every 2-3 weeks.
I cannot imagine a dude paying $60+ every 2 weeks for a haircut (unless it comes w/a ****)
I am in a position where appearnce is important, you know, suits every day, highly polished shoes, silk ties etc. I don't like it but it is part of my job and looking forward to the time when all this isn't necessary. Heck, I'll save a fortune on clothing alone.
I envy those who can dress more causally.

$30 at Denny's? what you do order the entire menu?
Tire guy gets min. $5 per tire 11.00R22.5's aint easy
they come right out when I go for tire work-no wait
Garbageman gets $50/man-cans are always out of the way, but not thrown
and they take EVERYTHING
LOL. She is a 32 years old blonde from the Ukraine who wears VERY fetching outfits.
$30 @ Denny's or S&S $6 unless they were Terri le or amazing then it goes up or down.
Nothing to a tire guy
$5 minimum to delivery
As posted above, bartenders get the most from me. 40% or so unless its over a $100 then 25% but regularly tipping 40% always keeps the tab low.
