The Movers Say the Muffins Aren't Enough.

Help me sort out tipping packers/movers: The move is 65 miles (so not interstate, etc.), but because of scheduling, I have packers (3) coming on day one (about 1/2 of my stuff is already packed), movers (3) to load on day two, and movers (3) to unload on day three. Is this $20 a person no matter what? I plan on drinks and food, too.

Apartment Building Holiday Tipping

Holiday Tipping Filter: I'm a few days late to the game on this, but I'm also not Christian, so I can use that as an excuse -- my roommate and I moved into our building 2 months ago and are trying to figure out how much we should tip our building manager and maintenance guy, both of whom are super nice and have gone out of their way to help us out on stuff. I say $50 each, she says $20. What do you mefites think? I'm especially curious about the building manager b/c I've never had one before.

Tipping with cash vs credit?

From the perspective of the waiter/waitress, is it better for me to tip via cash on the table vs. a number written on the credit card transaction? Do they end up getting less when tipped via credit card, due to restaurateur shenanigans or tax reporting or other? Cash often isn't an option because of time constraints (need to make change) or just laziness.

Tipping at Gas Stations

I have an etiquette question: I moved to the Boston area about a year ago from Oakland California. I've never seen a full service gas station in CA (I've seen them before, just not in CA). Here in MA, most of the gas stations are full serve, which rules in the winter.

My question is this: is it appropriate and/or expected that I tip the attendant that fills up my gas tank?

Tipping Sushi Chefs
