I have never tipped for a massage. When people hear this they feel I am way wrong. One girl I was seeing worked for herself and charged $75.00 an hour. There was no way I was going to tip her more. I dont even go to her anymore as I feel $75.00 is way to expensive. Last massage was done at a place of business where I assume she is paid hourly. I had pre paid for the massage. As I am leaving she tells me about a special. I think it was $40.00 but I have to use it before 5/1/12. I said sure and handed her my debit card to pre pay for that. She asks me if I also want to tip at that time. I said no and went on with my business. Do you guys regularly tip for massage? I work with a nurse who goes to Rubs, pays $80.00 for an hour and then tips $40.00. That is $120.00 for an hour and she feels this is totally normal. I think she is insane. * I have never gotten a happy ending and I may tip for that but just maybe.

I tip for massages unless the masseuse is also the owner. This is SOP.

I've only gotten two massages in my life, but yes, I tipped both times.

In my experience it works better if you give them more than the tip.

Do you tip for other personal services like haircuts? I think tipping for massages is pretty routine.

On a tangent, what would you do if you order a massage and a guy walks in, explains the girl you ordered is unavailable and he's ready to get started? :popcorn:

Sorry son, but I don't have to dumb down The Sport just so noobs like you have a chance at keeping up.

I play in a $4,000 entry, Super-WCOFF, triple-reverse, double down, mirror league with a modified PPFDR base 8 scoring system, and we just held our draft in July. For the 2013 season. You think Matt Barkley getting the start in USC is news? I drafted him after studying up on him, after he signed his letter of intent, last year. You think that maybe going with a WR in the first two rounds instead of back-to-back RBs is somehow new thinking in fantasy? Well, do you have the balls to do what I did this year when I didn't take my first RB until the fourth round (Roderick Smith, Harding High School of Indiana)? You've probably never even heard of Martavis Bryant, Kyle Prater, or Darius White, yet not only did I draft them this year to form my future WR core, I've also started referring to them by fantasy board nicknames (Super Mart, KPrater, & DoubleDarius). Hell, guys like you are going to be the poor schmucks who are searching this board five years from now for info on some great RB you just heard of out of the middle of nowhere in Alaska, and the FBG search result box is going to come up with this very post, where I brag about nabbing Isaiah Weeks of the Monroe Catholic Rams at the 25.32/26.01 turn a full two months before he lit up Delta Junction for 193 yards/2 TDs or Ketchikan for 183 rushing yards, 55 rec yards, & 2 TDs. You'll be wondering about his durability and I'll remember a phone call I made back when you were just hearing the name "Knowshon Moreno" for the first time to the kid's doctor in Fairbanks about the sprain he suffered in his left ankle in 2008.

Let me give you a tip, IT = INFO, and there's no "expires by" date on it.

Tipping should be outlawed. Charge what you need to make a living and pay your employees enough to get them to do a good job.

If she is tipping $40, I assume she is getting some special attention. :shrug:

I have done banking for a couple of masseuses and both have said that tipping is where they make the majority of their money and I had one talk about the cheap $5 tip she had gotten after working on this guy for an hour. I wouldn't pay for a massage, but if I went, i would tip.
I may not be right, but I am never wrong!

Fair enough. I will tip but I feel I am being forced. When does this stop? Apparently my work in the health industry is not tip worthy.

Yes you tip. 15% at a minimum. I get massages every 2-3 weeks. 90 minutes for $65. I tip $20.
