The posting about the gratuities got me to wondering (slow day today). I have been in the glass business for 30+ years, and yet I’ll bet I haven’t received a tip for an auto glass job more than half a dozen times in all those years. I rarely hear of any one getting a tip for auto glass installs in our area. I was curious as to whether that’s the norm in the industry or whether it’s just that we’re in an especially cheap area
I have 5 installers here, and two of them consitantly get tips. The funny thing is the people with old beat up cars that don't seem to have money are the ones that generally tip. The guy in the $160,000 SL65 doesn't even say thanks most of the time. The blue collar workers are the ones that tip, because they can relate to the job you are doing for them.
