I find tipping is a very personal thing. Whatever you are comfortable with.
I really don't understand the overall concept of tipping. I do my job, but my boss at the end of the day or week, doesn't come in and give me another 10-20% as a tip, yet in some professions it is considered required.
I consider "Tips" as monetary thank you's for above and beyond service. I will tip someone if I feel that they have provided a service to me that is outside of their "requirements". For example, the launch drivers that I use are excellent. They have secured lines for me when I have forgotten, took in my flag, turned off my battery, etc. For that I have given them cookies and brownies during the year and sent them $30-50 each at the end of the season. Along those same lines, I will not throw money in a "Tip Jar" if the person is behind the counter and gets me a coffee or donut. That is there job.
Back to your original question, I think $200/way is excessive. $50-100 total (both ways). Is it the same driver?
If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
