Default How much do you tip?

I follow the 10%-15%-20% plan where, e.g., I made it 20% because my barber cleaned my glasses.

How about you? What do you do?

I pay according to the custom of the country, plus a number of other factors.

This. Bear in mind tipping etiquette varies hugely between country and country - here in the UK it's very much a case of what you feel like, in other countries you can be immensely frowned on if you don't follow a certain rule!

In the US, I usually try to tip between 10-15% unless the waitress/waiter was extremely good or bad. It also depends on if I use cash or credit. If I use cash, it will depend on what small bills I have and what kind of change I get back.

I used to deliver pizzas and I always made sure that if I was supposed to give someone change that was under $7, I always gave it to them in all $1's so that they could have the option of giving me $3 or $4 instead of just $2 or $5 (because I would most definately get $2 and not $5...)

I typically tip between 15 and 20 based on service. But as other's have echoed if you go to a place like France where tip is included in the bill I don't pay anything extra.

We must be about one of the only countries in the world that do not tip but then again the wages paid to the work force are really good.

If that were the case here, I'd actually eat out more often... Right now I just bring it all back to my apartment...

The only tipping we do in Aussie is tipping beer into our mouths

I generally tip around 20% as long as the service is good. If it's bad I'll tip a lot less based on how long it takes them to bring me a new beer, condiments or improperly delaying portions.
