    Did I tip too much?

    Last night was wing night at most bars & pubs around here;
    I had a $20 voucher to one I got from 1st day of classes - beer was aight, wings were meh (compared to my usual watering hole).

    So a buddy & I cashed in and after the voucher discount, my bill came to $3.33 and his was $9.something. Usually we're clocked at ~$20 each.

    I also tried their seasonal house ale; different from my usual stout () - holy chit 2% ABV difference hit me like a whale later that night.

    Anyways, my buddy told me I better tip her well to make up for it.
    I ended up tipping her $3. I thought of even throwing $6 at her, but I was going to McDick's after and figured I needed that $3.

    Too much? Too little? Just right, cK?

    Btw, our server was pretty dang hot;long haired dirty blonde, tanned, with a hyoooooge rack on a low-cut top - if anyone wanted to know (I knew y'all wanted to know).
    HNNNNNNGGGGGGG.

    I wish I could tell you but I don't know how Canapple tipping/economy works. In the US a 15% tip in normal. I always over tip if they do a good job or are friendly. Since waitresses here don't have a minimum wage. But normally for all good service I over tip. If you remember her reaction it might hint at it. Generally a little bigger smile or something means good tip. But I dunno man google it

    As I think you're drunk and I have to much free time I looked it up. It said 15% is normal there as well. Now assuming I read this correctly you got 20 dollars off which means the actual bill was $23.33 so tipping 3 dollar is a roughly 13% tip of that.

    Long story short.

    You under tipped by 2% or about $.5 of the normal 15% however tipping isn't a exact law so it's nice you gave her something. (But honestly if she was wearing a low cut shirt she was probably aiming to make better tips)

    I second the low-cut "money bags" idea. Also, I never got why everyone's so nuts about tipping across the ocean. If I had to staple a calculator to my wallet just to calculate tips, instead of just tipping what felt right, my brain would start leaking.

    Nay, I tipped her $3 on my $3.33, split bill & buddy also did $3 on his $9.something. -$10 each bill.

    So in total, ~$3 over that $13.33 bef. -$10,

    (waitresses here have a min. wage, though they usually earn a couple bucks higher + tips after)

    Ay, their money bags bring money bags.

    Anyways, yeah - I usually 15% it,
    20-25% if it's pretty damn good service (like when they bring me waters before I ask because I'm sweating bullets off),
    and 10% if I'm being ignored or r00d to.

    This $3 bill of mine was a first, so I was wondering wtf do.

    Honestly the 15% tip is about right. I usually tip around 20% or a little more depending on my service, I'm a waitress so I always tip a little extra. I only make $4.77 an hour so I depend on my tips to live. You gave around the right amount. Although if you sat there for a while then it was a crappy tip lol.

    You're supposed to always tip off the original bill, cause even if you have a coupon, credit or voucher, the server didn't give it to you, lol.

    I always tip 20 percent, I just double the pretax total.

    Yikes, $4.77? You ought to move to Canada.

    Naw, I was a little more than buzzed and feeling pretty fly at the moment, so there was no hesitation.
    Her smile + knockers in my face + slight inebriation = zero hesitation.

    Then again...despite the CDN dollar having been at near parity for over 5 years now, everything here still costs on average 25-33% more than a US price tag - maybe you want to stay there.

    Yo bro, if I gave $5 to every hot girl I saw, I'd be killing people on the streets to maintain my fix.

    But you're dat Neo high roller!
    Rolling in coin off all dat Neosales - 1 UC Plush is worth like 5,000 tips.

    I wouldn't be surprised if you carry stacks of hunnids in your clutch and toss dem all up in the air at tip time,
    then all the servers in the joint stare,
    drop whatever the fuck they are doing,
    scream,
    and run over, jumping over tables and other patrons,
    fighting to grab the bills flying in the air before they hit the ground.
    While you stare and laugh at their pettiness.

    Or something like that in my head,
    like that scene where the Joker rains money on the crowd in the '89 Batman.

    ---

    But I digress. Thank you for your input, fearsome tigerlady.
    Your opinion vastly overrules all those above yours.
