Earlier today The Knot shared this link on Facebook about proper tipping. I found it pretty interesting and for the most part I agree with it. But it got me thinking, how do most UNH students tips at the bars on campus? When paying with cash, for the most part my friends and will leave an extra dollar per drink order, or sometimes depending on the type of drink or special. For example, if it's dollar drink night I'll order two wells and leave three dollars. Or two, two dollar drinks and I'll leave a 5. If I know it is going to be a long night, I may take a order off without tipping, but I'm always sure to let the bartender know I'll get them back on my next order. Usually when I do this I'll order a beer in a bottle or can. If it's a mixed drink or a beer on tap I'm always sure to leave something.
If I'm keeping a tab I usually use the old trick of doubling the sales tax or as the blogger pointed out, moving the decimal over and doubling. (Ex $25.00 becomes 2.50 x 2 = a $5 tip).
Anyways, I'd like to know the tipping habits of other UNH students when they go out downtown. I know some people tip differently during specials like beat the clock or dollar drink nights. Comment below or send me a tweet to let me know your tipping habits. If you're a lousy tipper you can always comment anonymously here.
