This is a good post with very good points. It probably deserves an award. Figure out what you think is a good tip, add 10% to that and don’t be steaming turd.

Chase, thank you so much. That means a lot. Haha! Just trying to shoot straight.

Maggie, you're so welcome! I've added The Cupboard.

Thank you for the reminders! I’m as pleased as anyone that we seem to be coming out of the worst of it but it can’t hurt to be careful.

Also, I’ve never worked for tips or delivered so I’m unclear what is appropriate (even more so in today’s climate). Is it safe to assume that 20-25% is enough?

Hi Jen! Yes, 20% - 25% is the standard. For delivery especially in rough conditions, I would consider tipping more based on the situation.
