Ask anyone who works as a waiter, waitress or bartender and they’ll tell you how vital tips are to their income, yet time and time again people can be super cheap when adding a gratuity for a job well done. Not surprising, there are parts of the country where folks are way more generous than others, and a new report reveals just where those places are. 

According to a report by Discover, the highest tippers live in Wyoming, where folks tip about 22%, with Idaho and Nebraska, also tipping pretty high. Meanwhile, the worst tippers are in Arkansas, with folks tipping just over 10%, with Nevada and Montana, also pretty cheap when it comes to tipping.
