Are people in Saskatchewan good tippers?
Take our poll on who does and doesn't merit a tip
As summer approaches, many people are more likely to buy gas, stay in a hotel or eat out. So, when is it appropriate to provide a little bit extra for a service?
"Tipping is always optional," Lew Bayer, the president of Civility Experts — an etiquette and manners consulting firm in Winnipeg — told CBC News in a recent interview.
Bayer adds people should consider how they go about leaving a tip.
"If you feel inclined to begrudgingly throw your loose change at the server, don't bother," she said. "No amount of money really makes up for treating a service person disrespectfully."
