Ok, so I know there’s etiquette for everything. Approximate tip to give at a restaurant. How much to give your hairdresser. I’ve never ever though done holiday tipping. Just haven’t. But now here I am in a building with a super and some four doormen. What do I do?
So of course I Googled it to see what the great Goog thought. I found a pretty good site that went through some different recommendations. They say:
- Apartment building superintendent: $50-200 and to tip less if you tip throughout the year.
- Apartment doorman: $10-80 or more each, depending upon building. The fewer doormen the building has, the more you tip each one. Those who serve you more should get a bigger tip.
Urgh. What to do. Do four doormen qualify as my building having several and therefore tip per doorman should be less? And what if my super is not someone who’s done a whole lot for me? I guess that doesn’t really matter??
And is this just in cold hard cash? Gee. So many questions. Anyone have any thoughts/recommendations here? I’d love ’em…
