Tipping is pretty much the norm here from baggers, to the guys that wash your windshield at the gas station. I always carry spare change in my ashtray, in my car so that I have it ready. I don't mind since I know they are not getting paid much at all, and most tips are only between 60 cents to a dollar. The locals tip only 10 percent at restaurants, but we always tip at least 15, and 20 if the service is excellent. We go to a few restaurants that we really like, and the staff is always happy to see us! I don't mind tipping 20 percent when we go home to Canada, but the level of service usually doesn't even come close.
