I just bought a new 2019 Silverado and got the 5.3L V8 which is what I had in my previous silverado. I love the engine. I don't do a ton of towing but when I do I mostly only notice i'm towing anything when I'm trying to stop.

The V8 has plenty of snap at all speeds and is plenty fun to drive and with the sport mode now (i know i know but my old truck didn't have it) its like driving a turbo.

What these posts seem to be inferring now, is that tipping is mandatory in the first place.

Not in my world.

I tip for good service, not to please The Joneses.

Further, if you travel outside of the U.S., you will find that many places have a percentage tip added to the bill. (if you take the time to translate their language that is. many don't)

Tipping in that instance only marks you as someone to take advantage of.

Anyway, back to the original point. Tipping is not mandatory. If you tip for crappy service, just because you think it is socially mandated, then you simply foster the bad behavior of those false expectations.


Not at all, I even said in an earlier post to tip based off the service. I tip less than 20% all the time. But I do it based off the service not based off inaccurate opinions about how much someone is making per hour.

It's not anger and it's not that I can't afford it, it's just simple economics and if that boggles your mind, I can't help you. When wait staff were making $3/hr when the min wage was $7.25, it made sense to tip them 20% because that's how they were making their money. Now that the government has mandated $15/hr (MPLS and St. Paul and soon everywhere with the crop of clowns in St. Paul), which is double or triple what they were making before, why should I give them 20% of a bill that has already gone up to cover their $15/hr wage? I'll still tip, just not 20%. They're getting paid their "livable wage" so in reality, we shouldn't be tipping them a dime extra.

Outside of mandated areas, I still tip 20%.


You do realize that the minimum wage in minneapolis and st. paul is not $15/hour. You keep saying that over and over and it's flat out wrong. If you want to talk simple economics you should start with accurate figures. As far as simple economics goes the cost of living has skyrocketed especially in Minneapolis and even when the minimum wage is raised to $15/hr that would be tough to live off of alone and impossible with the outdated minimum wage laws.

Some of the posts here are mind boggling. Some real angry people out there. Not sure what your job/pay has to do with tipping someone else for doing a good job. If you can't afford to do that you shouldn't be using their services in the first place...

Apples and oranges. MDs, plumbers, electricians are not in the service industry. Fishing guides, waiters, bartenders, etc are in the service industry where a tip for good service is the standard.


Bingo.

I'm surprised by some of the answers here. Obviously if you have a guide like described above where the guide is horrible and treats you poorly don't tip. But if you enjoy yourself, catch some fish and the guide does a good job you should definitely tip accordingly.

If you went to a steakhouse for a special dinner would you tip the waitress?

You are taking a special fishing trip I would certainly tip the guide.



Not when they're being paid $15/hr now.


You seriously don't tip waitresses/waiters anymore?

This is a good informational conversation that I feel like hasn't happened here in a while!

$50-100 depending on the quality of trip, cost of trip, number of people etc. usually for me.

I've never met Kirk but if I had to I'd guess he probably does resemble that remark....

Sorry Kirk
