The Awl's Matt Buchanan presented a questionable proposition today: That you should tip $1 for every drink at your local coffee house, irrespective of what you order (regular coffee, something a little richer, iced tea). Is that right?

We turn to you, Gawker readers (and staff!), for the answers. How much do you tip for coffee? Takeout? What about when you eat at restaurant? Movers? Street or subway performers? The nice people who clean your disgusting home?

And although plenty has been written about this moral quandary before, we're curious to know what you do. What personal tipping rules do you live by and why? A collection of the most interesting responses will be featured in a post tomorrow. Now share.
