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.

Do you tip your building's super during the holiday season?

Do you tip your building's super during the holiday season? Your postman? How much. I'm interested in practical advice on the local customs in Toronto, but stories from around the world (Hamilton, Scarbrough, Oakville, etc) invited too.

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?

Proper tip for a massage?

My wife recieved a gift-certificate for a massage as a baby shower present. I've searched google and found that it's common practice to tip your massage therapist, but how about in this situation? Should we assume the tip is included in the gift-certificate?

Tipping Sushi Chefs

I've been reading more about sushi after the discussion on Japanese dining and I came across mention of tipping the sushi chef. Do you tip your sushi chef separately, especially if he's not the owner, do you buy him a drink? And where are you?

Bad Spa

EtiquetteFilter: An hour removed from the salon now, I can see that I have just been on the receiving end of a bad spa treatment at a local salon. I've called, explained the problem and asked for a refund. What's the etiquette on tips? I left the appropriate tip for the amount of the service, and charged the rest on credit card.

Should I tip a self-employed masseuse?

I'm about to get a massage from a friend who runs her own one-employee (herself) massage business. When I pay her fee (which all goes to her), should I add a tip too? I never know how much of tipping is about "here's something for YOU since the bulk goes to management" (not true in this case), and how much is about, "I know you SAID the price is $50, but you should get a little extra because you did such a good job."

Tips about tipping? (Particularly in a hair salon.)

Who do you tip in a hair salon? I know that in normal salons, you tip the person providing the service. But, I go to a place where the owner does my hair, am I supposed to tip her as well? Seems to me that I've heard that you don't tip the owners. And how much are you supposed to tip?
