5 people you might not tip, but should, from CNN Money 

Ever experience that awkward situation at the end of a service when you wonder if a tip is required? According to CNN, if you get that feeling, then the answer is yes, you should tip.  Here are five of those situations

  1. The exterminator. Not the maintenance calls, but the guys that make a visit to get rid of those nasty spiders that crawl on you during the night (they do, ya know.  Have fun getting to sleep tonight!)
  2. The cable guy. Some companies won't allow their workers to collect tips (I'm looking at you, Comcast!), but CNN says if they're out there in the hot sun putting in your cable so you can watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians, then they should get a tip.
  3. The spray tanner.  15 to 20 percent for any salon service provider. 
  4. The dry cleaner. If they get a stain out of your favorite shirt, then throw them a tip.
  5. The road service employee. The tow truck guy that rescued you in the middle of the night deserves a little something extra.

Who's missing from this list?
