Tipping: Do you leave cash or just add tip to the bill?

Jump to last reply

Just curious as to what everyone else does. A friend told me years ago that servers, hair stylists and so on often have to split tips at the end of the day. He also said they are taxed 8% on that day's receipts, whether they received 8% or not.

I like to pay for meals with a credit card and leave a cash tip. At the hair salon, I write a check for the cut/color and tip my stylist in cash.

My husband thinks this is ridiculous, but if I received good service, I want the person who actually provided the service to get the tip, not all of his/her co-workers or the business owner. What do YOU do about this?
