Idahoans Are Bad Tippers

Idahoans are the worst tippers in the Inland Northwest, averaging 11.44% in tips, according to Simple Insights. We Idahoans barely made it out of the Bottom 10 list, which is led by stingy Utah at 10.6%. In the Inland Northwest, Montana and Wyoming lead the nation in tipping at 16.8% and 16.15%, respectively. Oregonians and Washingtonians are good tippers, too, at 14.69% and 14.08%, respectively. Idahoans shouldn't feel too badly. Californians (11.47%) and New Yorkers (in the Bottom 5 at 11.3%) are lousy tippers, too. You can see the average for each state's tipping here. H/T: Brad Iverson-Long

Question: I generally tip between 17% and 20% (as a result of listening to my daughter's tales of customer response during her three years as a waitress for Tomato Street & Chili's). What do you tip?
