plain jane Posted July 25, 2008 Share Posted July 25, 2008 I could really use some IRL advice on tipping. I've done a few google searches and frankly, I have to admit I'm shocked at how many services are listed as tip-worthy. Not only that, but how MUCH I'm expected to tip over and above the fee I am already paying. I guess I grew up in the dark ages and have lead a "sheltered" life in this regard. My google search came up with the following: appliance delivery: $20/person (Yikes! I already paid the store $50/appliance to have them delivered) All these people are doing are dropping them in my garage. movers: $50/head person $30/ea for rest (I'm not even GOING to say how much the movers cost!) roofers: $50/head person $30/ea for the rest (again HOW much are we already paying the roofers??!!) Ok. Sorry. Clearly I lived in the dark ages. I can't believe how much this stuff all costs. And what's the point of paying for a service if you're only going to pay more above and beyond?? I should negotiate the tip into the original price. If my movers quoted me x, I should have agreed to x - tip. :tongue_smilie: How do you all deal with all these extra costs and "hidden" expectations. I figured paying $150 to the store for my appliances was more than enough. Had I known I'd be paying another $40, I'd have picked them up myself. Yeesh.
