I think that is something you have to be taught to do. I didn't know hairdressers got tips until I was in college because my mom always paid.
DH, Lydia and I are going to watertown to run errands. I am holding out on a bigger sams run because Costco is opening in Fargo the end of the month and I want to go there. They let you try for free once right?

My kids know to tip because if they get their haircut I give them the money in their hand to go and tip their hairdresser themselves.

I think it is funny how popular shows like The Voice are totally evident in the songs that are played on the radio. The local current hits station just played Wayward Son by Kansas

Re: Basically it's TGIFriday!

FWIW, Bethann, at the Great Clips I go to, they always ask if I want to add a tip to the bill. So my kids hear that, and eventually will understand what it is and that they are supposed to pay it. And the pedicure/wax salon I go to does the same thing. Maybe if whoever works the register can ask? They make a point of a different person at the register than the stylist so it's not awkward for them to ask.

Re: Basically it's TGIFriday!

I used to be a receptionist in a salon when I was in school, and I would always ask. But I work in a small privately owned salon, right now there is just myself and the owner there, she might hire one or two more girls if the right person comes along. But it's always me who rings out my clients.

ETA - all of my regulars tip, it's just the random walk-ins that you never know about

People suck at tipping out here. The cat groomer was shocked the first time I tipped her. I thought heck I tip the people that cut my hair and I don't scratch or bite.

Re: Basically it's TGIFriday!

So, I've decided to give up some of my storage space to create a cozy little reading nook. Thoughts? It's a cuby-like area at the top of my stairs that wasn't really a great storage space in the first place because you can see everything that is there.

Sounds cool Beth. You could find a cool old comfy chair and rug and get some shelving.

We have lost all power...oh joy.
