The wealthy tipping comment is based on reality. Wealthy people tend not to tip. It's a fact of life. It's part of the reason they get wealthy.

As for me, I tip when appropriate.
I certainly apologize if I misunderstood what you were saying. I read it as like a man with a mustache and a pipe sitting on his high horse like “well if you had a real job like a lawyer or doctor, you wouldn’t have to worry”

Hahahahaha.

I was raised in Texas oil field wealth and just didn’t experience the same type of mentality about tipping and greed. But also Vegas /LA wealth is much more showy and in your face so it seems more insulting for the Ferrari’ guy to stiff you. Lots of rich Texans could afford luxury cars and homes but they would rather drive a ford pickup and live modestly and you can’t always tell the rich from the middle class. People here are like screaming at the rooftops ... looooook at meeee... I have tons of money. Gucci blah blah lol 😂

We are renting our house in NM for $1250 and renting in Vegas for $1350 and they are similar sizes, so not a bad jump.
Ok so you rent whole house. Can I ask how many bedrooms and baths, and is there a garage/driveway, and yard space?

18/hr is considered a lot of money out here?

What do you consider "a lot of money" to be hourly?

School bus drivers in Northern VA start at over 18, with very good benefits...some of them are living in storage spaces. In LV that is a good wage....for a single person. Probably hard to come by in NM.

In NYC, has to be at least over $30/hr, $25/hr min, actually it may be even more.

In Vegas, 18 is a very good wage...may be the average for management positions in retail (aside from Walmart and such)

Lived in Naples, FL for four years. Over six months of the year temps are in the 90's with the dew point hovering around 74. And, it rains every day June through September.

December through April are much nicer, lower temps and dew points.

Not a bad gig.

Once he is on The Strip, my guess is tips will go up because a higher percentage will be business meals paid for by out-of-town business people using business credit cards rather than personal money.
