As you know, I just got back from San Francisco. And while I was there, I tookÂ a coupleÂ of cab rides. But I have always been curious as to how much you should tip a cab driver. What’s the standard?Â Â I can only think of oneÂ circumstance where I refuse to tip a cab driver and that is if they talk on their cell phone from the moment they pick me up until we reach our destination… especially if I am trying to keep a conversation going with a friend.
On the other hand, if a cabbie has been helpful like letting me know where the good strip clubs are or which great restaurantsÂ I should check out,Â I will take care of them – sometimes as much as 100 percent tip.
So how do you tip your cab driver?
