Add in to the regional specificity and it can get mind boggling! Do you tip hotel room cleaners everyday or once a trip? How much for fancy shmancy bar drinks? Do you tip people who tough your bags? Why do we have to tip any way? How did it all get started? Find out all that and MORE! Don't forget to support the shows you love by going to maximumfun.org/donate!
