Tipping For Services In The Area

Firstly, the Sunderland Forum is all about local issues. The City of Sunderland obviously includes, Washington, Houghton and Hetton. However, we allow news, views and gossip from all areas surrounding Wearside.

Tipping For Services In The Area

Around once a week I get a taxi and the fare costs around £4.40 or £4.50. Each time I give a fiver and tell the driver to keep the change.
Lately, because of my circumstances, I have been getting a fast food delivery once or twice a week and have been tipping the driver 50p.
My mate who also lives in Sunderland says he always tips a quid for things like this.
But, loads of others I know say they never tip anyone.
So, I ask the people on the Sunderland Forum, do you tip for services and if so, how much?
Do I continue to tip for services like this or should I stop or even increase my tips?
I am asking because I have only started to use taxis and pizza shops relatively recently.

Nothing wrong with a 50p tip when there is no requirement to do so.
My kids are like little Black Cats :mrgreen:

I tip if I feel like it and round up to the nearest pound but sometimes I have been known to tip a quid :P
I might have the day off today!

Sometimes I give a tip, sometimes I don't, it depends on circumstances I suppose.
What was that you said again?

I never go as far as a quid :shock:
However, I might round up to the nearest pound, nobody can complain if you do.

^ This, give them at least 75p :lol:
I haven't tipped anyone for over a year and it was about 60p I think.

Trouble is that money is tight at the minute for everyone. I suspect you are just having a little joke there ;)

I remember once tipping the removal firm lads a tenner about 30 years ago.
I try and tip about £1.00 where I can but always round up as well so I could tip up to £1.90.
Mind you, I don't use too many services nowadays.
