Thanks for following the rule because I couldn't figure out WHY this thread got pulled up. But I see who did it now - that poster/all their posts seems to have poofed or something?

Why would someone resurrect a thread this old just to gripe? Such bitterness.

They were a bit nasty on another thread, so I guess they got spanked & their posts went away.

Absolutely. Here in NYC/CT you tip pretty much everybody for pretty much everything.

Yeah, I saw another post earlier on another thread. I think it is a troll trying to stir up trouble. My guess is they are doing the deleting, I am new here, but most boards don't like you to delete posts. Very hard to follow the thread with holes. They normally will band the user instead.

No you can't actually delete your own post on the DIS. Only mods can do that -- and they do for those who get out of line, get points assessed, get banned.

Tips

Ok to be honest I'm a technician for d-tv for a while now. Now I'm not here to cry about how little we get paid, but we get paid just enough to get the TVs on. Its fairly simple. U want something done right. U pay for it. Again tip is not necessary but it in your best interest too do so. Like I said of coarse we get paid to do a job. The same price whether we there for an hour or 5 hrs. But you get what you pay for. Tipping makes your life easy. Smarten up people. I've never said this out loud but don't tip me. And no ones happy. Especially you the customer. Everything could be so easy.
Oh and I use every customers bath room.

This thread must keep popping up on google searches, because it's really old. And the posters bumping it up have a few posts and interesting user names.

Those technicians are protected by a union, get their health benefits paid for, or at least a high percentage paid for, by their employer, they make a very high hourly wage and usually get tons of overtime. No, I don't tip them.

Certain professions are traditionally "tipped" professions, and certain others are not. Installers and repair people have never been in that first category.

I can't tell you how many injuries my Dad received as a carpenter or helped with on the job site. How many walls have fallen and crushed someone while the home was being built.

Do you tip the police or firemen too? Their jobs are by no means easy or safe either. I don't get your logic that skilled labor job that requires heights/ladders = tip.

I tip in situations where the employee is likely to make less than minimum wage..pizza delivery, waitress, newspaper delivery or in situations like a hairdresser but I would not tip the cable installer or the plumber as those are skilled labor type jobs that often make decent wages.

I'd love for police, fire, EMS to be tipped. DH does all of them. . If he was tipped for just the calls in bad weather, middle of the night, working on someone high and combative, etc. he would do very well.

We usually tip servers, bell services, and occasionally massage therapists. I tip the hairdresser in December. DD was tipped well as a barista, which surprised me even. When she started working at the coffee shop, there was already a tip jar there. The manager said some people started asking if they accepted tips so she put the jar out. Not everyone tipped, and it was not expected, but DD sure was excited when she received them. We used to think it was interesting that the worst tippers were the wealthier people who went into the shop. The best tippers were others who provided services, such as the spa employees down the block or the tattoo artists who came in daily just before opening their shop for their caffeine and pastries.

But, tipping is out of hand. It seems we are constantly told we need to tip someone. I have never considered tipping a person who installs anything, plumber, roofer, or even the appliance delivery person.

Since a tip is customarily given *after* a service is performed, what do you do when a customer gives you a tip? Do you turn to them and say, "Oh wait, I didn't realize you were going to tip me. I did a really crappy job. Let me go and do the job better for you now that I've received a tip"? Don't tell me people are shoving money in your hand BEFORE you even begin a job. Oh, and I notice you have one post. Yeah.

How much does it take to get proper grammar and spelling?
