Tipping question

    I have a delivery coming tomorrow with a fridge, washer and dryer. Never really thought about it. Do you typically tip an appliance delivery person?

    I've got a new stove coming today. I left $40 with my wife, figuring there would be two guys moving the stove from truck to kitchen and the old stove from kitchen to truck. Each gets $20.

    Am I the only one that isn't having something delivered today?

    If there's a happy ending, definitely tip.

    Happy ending? I'm not goin' there.

    But to answer the original question, no. You want to tip them for dragging dirt over your rugs, putting a few new dents and scratches in your furniture?

    You absolutely tip them, especially if they are removing old appliances.
    I'd go with cran on this one.

    The two worst fights I've ever witnessed on SJ were over tipping and charcoal vs. gas grills.

    I'm not touching this one with Bea Arthur's dick.

    What, are they not getting paid by their company?

    Soooooo....you tip the person who's delivering a new gas grill. But only if he takes away the old charcoal one. :D

    If he's delivering and putting it together, you're damn right I tip him. If he's dropping a box on my deck and saying "good luck," no.

    Again, someone delivering a stove isn't just putting it in your kitchen in the box and walking away. He (they) pull the old one, hook up the new one, etc.
    And that's worth a tip.

    Have sodas ready if they are not allowed to accept tips.
