At rio buffet , like 30 bucks a piece , so I ripped them 5 bucks or so to keep getting me Coke , taking my empty plates (I think I used 6) etc .

I would rather be 2 dollars heavy on a small tip like that than light. My brother is kinda on the lower side , he says "oh a buck or two " for Buffett and also for HK service .

Sorry , but even 10-20 bucks a day of tipping is not gonna impact my vacation , so why not side on the side of being overly generous ? I appreciate it in my field where I just got a $50 dollar tip for coming out a quickly and on a Saturday to do a 3 HR job .

This gets complicated. First you have to know how much the damn buffet costs. If you don't make a mental note when you enter, if you just hand them your card, and your receipt comes back and shows a 'zero balance' paid, see then it gets harder. I have always left at least a $5 for a buffet dinner when by myself. I'm usually by myself, I have no friends ;-( When with family or friends the amount goes up, exponentially is not the term (unless I had my sons with me - only once - big tip - they are Rascals ). But goes up on a per person basis, like I said, complicated. Once with sons was enough, hopefully never again. They made fun of the whole place, and HATED the smell of smoke. Recently I stashed them with Sparkles at a cheap Micro-Tel in Maggie Valley, and snuck off to play a little (redeem some vouchers). Low and behold they upgraded me to a pretty fancy suite thing. Stop...tale for another day. ;-)

Most buffetgoers do not clean up after themselves or bus their plates and utensils.


Sure, you got me there. But they clearly do less work than at a full-service restaurant.

I make the maids change my sheets everyday, replace all towels everyday, leave all lights on and set room temps at extreme level just to piss off the "save the planet" liberals.

No you don't, you just like to say you do just to piss them off.

This is a little off topic but has to do with my Vegas hotel (I tip a dollar or two for a two-day stay). I might have 5K in the safe and, if so, the night before I leave I place the ironing board by the door (or something similar). That way I can't leave without having that something by the door to remind me that I have money in the safe. This avoids the nightmare that has crossed my mind of driving through Barstow on the way home when I suddenly remember my money's still in the safe!!!

Morning of my final day, I attach an 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper to the inside of the door that reads:

EMPTY THE SAFE

Works every time.

When I check into a room, I check the safe first, you know, just in case. Look under the little cloth thingy in there too.
Top shelves in the kitchen, or bathroom, behind the TV. Anywhere the maids don't usually look, or are to short to reach. You would be surprised ;-)
