The last post in regards to tipping is kind of a rocky topic because a lot of people feel as though tipping should be considered as almost a gift and only applies when exceptional service is given. While this is true to some degree, I kind of have a different opinion on the topic because I have spent many of my years during college in an industry where tipping was my main source of income.
Let’s face it and be honest, no one likes to tip.
That is not the way it works in this country unfortunately and for many people out there, tipping is simply the only way they can make a comfortable income and again unfortunately, we customers are stuck with the bill.
True Across the Board
Even though the main subject of my page is about hotels, tipping is something that can greatly improve your overall service for many different facets of life and I believe it is an important topic to talk about. I’ll go back to my roofing story as an example and how it can apply to your vacation stay.
If you remember and for those who have been tuning in, my wife and I moved into a new home years ago and wanted some work done on it. Once again to give credit where it’s due, we found and used this roofing contractor St. Louis to come out over the span of a weeks time to tune up our roof. Every day that they were there I would throw the roofers a few bucks and offer them some small snacks and drinks while they were working and you better believe they treated me better and make sure to handle the job with care.
Following these etiquette guidelines can help you if you are still unsure but keep in mind, it will never hurt any situation.
The same thing applies to hotels in that the notion of going out of your way to show them you appreciate the work they are doing for you can go a very long way and greatly improve the service you get and overall experience.
