On tipping

Corey Gilmore has a breakdown of how much it costs to run a cab, and a good reminder to tip your cab driver. And tip well. Apparently, even a decent tip leaves the driver paying for income they didn’t get:

…the government assumes about a 23% gratuity…

Ouch. These days I try and aim for 25% but I still think the standard is 20%, and there are a lot of people still putting down %15 out there.

If you can’t afford the gratuity, then you should seriously consider wether you can afford the service in the first place.
