    Does anybody here work in a job, in North America, which has a tipping culture?

    If so, what is it? And how important are your tips to you? The whole tipping thing confuses us Brits, as well as the Kiwis and the Aussies, we all know that we tip waiters and barstaff in the US, but who else should be tipped?

    Oh yeah, and I tipped cab drivers of course, and the man that took care of our suitcases, anybody else?

      If you are interested I wrote a hub on this subject not long ago which contains the origin of tipping. The hub is titled Service Wages Down and is linked below for your convenience.

    ...lots of folks...hair stylists and delivery people come to mind and anyone who you feel went over and above your expectations and treated you well...

    Lots of jobs in Vegas are dependent on tip income.  Skycaps at the airport, valets at the casinos, often the housekeepers in hotels/motels, dealers, change ladies, bartenders...I'm sure someone else can fill in much more.  Also, there are often tip jars at coffee shops, ice cream shops, sandwich shops, though I'm not sure to what extent the workers depend on these tips.  It's customary to tip hair stylists and barbers, as well.

      I should clarify, I'm not sure to what extent all of those casino related jobs depend on the tips, my brother is both a skycap, and a valet, and the tips are important.
