Many of us , includeing myself quite often wonder what exactly is the correct amount we should be tipping in our everyday lives , for services such as pizza delivery, restaurants, hairdressers and taxis! Not to mention for those of us who travel what is appropriate for bell hops to maid service! Without feeling like a jerk about it and then worrying if we actually tipped enough! I have some answers for you that I read about on" CNN Money " I wanted to share with you guys especially leading up to the holidays!

Let me start with waitressing, Bar Keep and Pizza Delivery!
Waitressess and waiters - 20% For good service 10% For bad service : I would also like to add that some restaurants have been putting in no tipping policies and paying thier kitchen staff and wait staff more per hour instead, But most are not happy about it as they can earn from $35.00 to $ 45.00 per hour when they are bringing in tips!
Bar Tenders- its $1.00 per drink or if your running a tab its like the wait staff 20% of your final bill!
Pizza Delivery Driver - its 10% of the total bill or 15 to 20 % If it was a difficult delivery such as bad weather , or your elevator was out of order. The absolute minimum though is $2.00 per pizza!

Hairdressers- 20% of your bill plus $2.00 To the shampoo person. Same goes for all Spa Attendants $2.00 unless the spa attendant is the owner , then no tip!
