Local Tipping and Maid Service - Home
We sometimes go to Outback Steakhouse near WDW (love their steak) and get the curb side service. So they bring the food out to the car, we pay and leave and bring back to the room. If you have ever done this, do you tip them and if so how much - DW thinks we should be paying at least 10% but for 1 minute of bringing the food to the car, I think she is being overly generous. In the Northeast, for a sit down meal, 20-25% regular tipping is the norm we are used to, especially for really great service (which is more rare than it used to be). She thinks 15% is being cheap.
2nd, and this is not directly WDW related so if the monitors need to eliminate this I understand, if you have a maid service in your home, what do you pay hourly? We have a maid coming in every two weeks for 5 hours and DW gives her $140 each time. Since DW works, I cannot complain.
