Want a good tip? Wait on a senior!


Seniors are on a fixed income and likely to be bad tippers, right? Wrong! According to an article on AARP, you might want to ask for the elderly couple to be put in your station.

Older diners are more consistently generous tippers. Most of those age 65 and over (84 percent) said they always tip between 15 and 20 percent. More than half of diners age 55-plus said they typically leave 20 percent, as did 41 percent of those ages 35 to 54.

Want an even better tip? Wait on men! The Michelin survey showed also found that men tip better than women.

Men are more likely than women to be big tippers. The survey didn’t find a lot of differences between men and women, although more men say they’re big tippers: More men made it a rule to tip more than 20 percent, and they were also more likely to leave an exceedingly generous tip of 30 or 50 percent.
