Buffet restaurant - depends on the type if it's a pay as you entere nothing, if they get drinks and small things 10%
Take-out food (when you pay by credit card, they still leave the line for "tip", what do you do?) - Nothing
Hair salon - Since I rarely go I don't even remember - I think 15%.
Nail salon - Don't get my nails done
Maid who cleans your hotel room - Usually we don't, although smaller places such as bed and breakfast we stayed at last weekend we left $10 for the two nights for our room.
Bartender - $1 if I get something but don't really go out
Valet parking - We do not use this service
Other? Guess I don't do a lot of tipping but we don't go out much/don't do much for myself that requires tipping. Massages I have gotten in the past I leave 10-15% but refuse to go again because all of them have hurt more than helped.
Restaurant server - Generally 20% unless they were really bad or really good....even if they're bad they get 15%, sometimes I've given 30-50% depending on if we have coupons/etc.
Buffet restaurant-maybe 15%, depends on if they have to refill drinks and the like.
Take-out food (when you pay by credit card, they still leave the line for "tip", what do you do?) - Depends on the situation....if I watched the person getting my order fixed up and they're busting their butt, then would probably give 10-15%
Hair salon - Depends...but I usually don't tip in percentages at the hair salon....I think the last time I went for a haircut I gave her $7 for a $20 haircut?
Nail salon - usually $5 per service done....maybe less on eyebrows (which is really the only thing I've gotten done in the past 3 years or so LOL)
Maid who cleans your hotel room - Nothing usually...when we were in Philly for work, I did tip the bellboy but not housekeeping.
Bartender - if I tip a bartender, they're usually also my server (like Chili's sutuation) so they get the normal server tip.
Valet parking - Couple dollars, but valet is very rare.
