Podcast – Lizzie Post – Tipping Tips

Perhaps it’s my imagination, but gratuities seem more expected nowadays. To shed some light on tipping tips and etiquette, I turned to Lizzie Post. Lizzie is the great-great-granddaughter of etiquette icon Emily Post and the Co-President of The Emily Post Institute.

In this episode, Lizzie explains how the Institute determines etiquette guidelines and suggestions and how long couples really have to send wedding thank you notes. We discuss tips for hotel staff, restaurant waitstaff, and rideshare drivers. She drills down on holiday tipping, gifting, and thanking the service providers in our lives. And the dreaded tipping screen–should we feel obligated?
