Are you a "Swiper"? How do you tip the valet?

I wonder how many people who rely on tips as their main source of income are affected by the fact that hardly anyone carries cash with them any more.

I was pulling up to valet my car the other day at The Intercontinental Hotel - our favorite evening spot - and realized that I didn't have a tip for the valet. I simply don't have much use for cash any more. I swipe my card for pretty much everything that I buy.

I am usually a big tipper, but sometimes I don't have time to find an ATM machine and get cash for tips.

Lame blog topic I know - I just thought that it was something interesting to think about.

Why Don't Minorities Tip Well?

If you've ever worked as a server / waiter / waitress in any kansas city restaurants you might be aware that most minority groups do not usually tip well.

Why is this?

I wonder if it's because the bulk of the industry's servers are white and the minorities feel like the white people owe them something.

But no matter what the reason, it is a FACT that minorities don't tip well or don't tip at all - ask any waitress in town.

Anyone have any answers?
