Quick Question: Tipping the valet

    Have to attend an event tonight with valet parking.
    Do you tip the valet when you hand off the keys or when you get the car back or both times?
    I don't remember.
    I'll be suiting up, and will check the responses shortly.

    I usually do it upon safe return of vehicle.

    if it's a dump, a buck or two.
    A classier dump, a finnif.

    But I probably should start tipping the other way around, giving more to the poor schlub at the joint that shouldn't really have valet parking, but does.

    I initially thought this was a query about tipping the velvet. Oh well, that would have been much more exciting.

    Tip upon receipt of said vehicle. Now, if you want a primo space or have concerns, I tip beforehand to ask they keep good care of (convertible.)

    That's very well played.

    I usually tip when I hand off the vehicle. I feel like they're less likely to fuck with it if you've already shown a willingness to tip. They're more likely to think that if they bring it back without fucking it up, they'll get another tip. They'd be wrong, but at least they don't fuck with my car.

    I find if you put $10 in your cleavage as a tip when you give them the car, they usually take excellent care of you.

    Chest hair and cleavage, you don't need a valet parker, you need a dark alley.
