Survey: To tip or not to tip, a moral dilemma

How do you determine whether to tip or not?

Most people now don’t know when, or how much to tip. Should you tip the people in a drive thru? What if you pick up your pizza from the pizza portal at Little Caesar’s? Many people are not sure when, or how much, to tip when they go out to tip. Here are some answers from our school’s teachers.

Mr. Carney: I always tip, the service determines how much.

Mr. Potocki: If it is a server who has done a good job, I tip.

Miss. Sisson: If there is a service involved (such as someone giving a massage), I tip.

Mrs. Thier: If there is repeated good service, or it is a societal standard, I tip.

Mr. Adamski: I tip if there is a service provided.

Ms. Davies: I always tip.

Mr. Luther: I always tip, with the exception of having to leave a bad service note… which is rare.

Mrs. Bennett: I tip when there is a service, they do not set their own prices, and the position doing the work is not receiving the benefits from the business.

Mrs. Rutkowski: I always tip at a restaurant and if they provide a service.

Ms. Grubbs: You should always tip, service determines how much.

Mrs. Toplovich: I always tip between 25% and 30%.

Mrs. Marsh: I always tip.

Mr. Soprano: I always tip between 18% and 20%.

Ms. Pound: I usually tip because I never know.

Ms. Vallimont: I always tip.

Ms. Williams: I always tip.

Mr. Buona: I only tip restaurants and hotel staff.

Mrs. Brundage: I always give a standard tip and with exceptional service, I tip over 20%.

Mrs. Menjavar: I always tip and usually at 20%.

Mr. Woods: I always tip.

Mr. Brewer: Always tip, but good tip results if I never have to ask for a drink.

Mr. T McCray: Usually only tip if I sit down at a restaurant or if I get a drink at a coffee shop and have extra change.

Ms. Turk: I always tip: 15% for average service and 25% for exceptional service.

Mr. Kerr: I usually tip at least 15% for waiters and waitresses, and otherwise I look it up.

Mrs. Happoldt: I usually always tip.
