While we all know you likely shouldn't trust a valet too much, at the end of the day if you're in a major city on a frequent basis, you likely will not be able to avoid using a valet.
It's not too often you come across a do-it-yourself parking garage, at least I haven't in my adventures in New York.
Anyhow, we all know it's a give-in that you have to throw down a tip if you want your car not:
A) Buried in the back of the lot, or
B) Beat on
Though something tells me if you roll up with something nice enough, there's a good shot it'll get beat on anyhow. I mean, how many YouTube videos have you seen of a parking attendant having some fun?
Anyway, this boils down to one thing: The tip.
That has me wondering several things.
Do YOU tip when you drop the car off?
Do YOU tip when you pick the car up?
What's a reasonable tip in your neighborhood?
Does a tip really matter these days? In these economic times?
As you can see from my cover shot, anything's possible if you just know how to treat folks right.
