Q: What is it like working as a Bellman?

Bellman in Boston:
"Don't blame the guest if you don't like your tip."
Don't base your service on how much you think the guest will tip you. Always give the best service you can, even if you think you won't get a tip. Some bellmen I work with won't approach a guest that they think they doesn't "look" like a good tipper. You never can tell who will or won't tip until you help them.
