husband and I rented a house in a local resort area last weekend, and we paid in addition to the nightly fee, we paid a $65 cleaning fee in advance. When we got there, on the kitchen counter, was an envelope with a message that before we left we should load and start the dishwasher, take out the trash, and put our towels in the washer. It also announced that Maria was going to clean after we left. Well, Bully for Maria! I didn't leave anything for her. Really, were we supposed to leave something for Maria? Did she not get the $65 or any part of it? Then today, I got my nails done. This is something that I just started doing. I had to get my acrylics filled and the color blended. It cost $30 and I paid with my card. They don't take tips on the card. So I asked if he had change for a $20. He asked how I would like it. I told him to just give me a $5 and a $10 back. He went to his stash and held up two tens and asked if I was sure I wanted a $5 and a $10. If they had taken the tip on the debit card, I would have done 20% and given him $6. But I figured it would be easier to give me $15 back so I replied "Um, yeah." Then he dug out a $5 and a $10 and gave it to me. I figured that 18% was a decent tip. Was I wrong? I also tipped him $5 when he did a $20 job, but don't I get to decide?
