I think I'm pissing off my garage guy. Do you tip a couple of bucks each time you get your car on a monthly?
^^Easy, cowboy. The car is free, the garage $300/mth, it's in my basement, I travel most every weekend and live 8 miles from lower manhattan where street parking is easy and free. That trip by taxi is probably $40 with tip.
Which brings me back to the original question ... do you tip the monthly garage guy? I do tip the guy at any other garage; not sure why I don't tip these guys. I do tip a doorman for hailing me a cab, but not my own doorman. I figure that's covered in a christmas tip. I guess I could hand the parking guys a holiday tip.
Yes, tipping kind of sucks. I was in a hurry the other day and the cc machine in my cab was slow as fuck so I just started hitting buttons to get the hell out of there. Ended up hitting the "add 30% tip." How is that even a fucking option?
No, not worth that much. Cars are one of those things I just don't care about. Just noticing the scowls as I pick it up and also want to be a fair guy.
I would also add (for you anti-car nuts) that I LOVE driving in NYC. I get it, it gets me. Keep moving forward. SanFo almost fucking killed me with a goddamn stop sign on every fucking corner.
