Am I supposed to tip the lawn guy?

Do you usually do that?

  • WHY tip at all? The company you use, or kid, DID agree on a set price for the work to begin with didnt they? WHY tip for that?

  • I agree with vbruno. We've taken tipping to new levels. We tip the garbage, the mailman, the hair dresser, our barista and now the lawn guy? Seriously? Shall we tip the flight attendant, the guy at Home Depot and the grocery clerk? Where does it END? No one tips me for my job and I'm not highly paid. Tipping is nice but c'mon. JMO. : )

  • We don't tip our lawn guy. He lives here for free and is lucky he gets PAID to do it at all.

  • It seems like everybody wants tips for doing there job these days. I know when i was a server, i counted on tips to get by until i got my little pay check. I probably would tip the lawn person if they did a very nice job.
