Tipping Etiquette #1- Don’t Point Out Your Tips

And, you’re at the bar! You’ve ordered the drink, and now it’s time to tip.

So, So, rules when tipping…

First rule: don’t point out how much you’ve tipped. Ok, the bartender… he can see how much you’ve tipped; and to point it out just kinda makes you look like a loser, right?

“Hey, hey, hey.. that $2.. that $2, that’s from me. Hey bartender. Right there, that’s mine.”  Ok, thanks!  Thanks… whoa.  Ok, you tipped.  $2, ok thanks.

Honestly, it makes you look like a dick. Don’t point out tips.
