Women leave the best tips – even when service suffers

“Women gave a 9 percent gratuity, while men averaged 7 percent, when there was hair in a diner’s food and the server failed to replace the meal. A rude server got a 7 percent tip from women and a 5 percent tip from men.

Gen Xers, born between 1965 and 1980, were the biggest tippers in several scenarios. Servers who went the extra mile by offering a free drink or food item were rewarded by GenXers. The group also was more generous with kitchen mistakes such as finding hair in their food as long as the meal was replaced, per Discover.

Millennials, born 1981 to 1998, didn’t really appreciate an extra attentive server and were the least forgiving with their tips when it came to mistakes in the kitchen. Baby Boomers, born 1946 to 1964, reduced tips when servers were rude or flirty and when they couldn’t get their desired table.”
