Tipping Guidelines

My friend, Jonathan, over at the MyMoney blog has written a post offering tipping guidelines. I appreciate his efforts. Nothing is worse than to be in a situation and not know what to do. This is especially true if it is a business situation.

There are some pretty good reference books out there that can help you figure out protocol. Here's a few that I like:

The Etiquette Advantage in Business by Peggy Post and Peter Post

Gentlemanners, a set of three books by John Bridges and Bryan Curtis

Essential Manners for Men, by Peter Post - I really like this book.

And for those with kids:

The Gift of Good Manners by Peggy Post and Cindy Post Senning, ED.D.

The Guide to Good Manners for Kids by Peggy Post and Cindy Post Senning, ED.D. - a book written for kids.

These are just a few "manners" books that I have in my library. I especially recommend the two books for kids. I think one of the most important things we can give our kids is a proper respect for manners.
