I really don't like the recent surge in "Tip" jars.
Tell me about it. It's ridiculous

Now that I think about it.
For DMode fans Dave Gahan's Paris concert is on Directv for the month of November.

They are cool again I guess. Or "were cool."

Zoney! needed to remind himself that just cause he saw it on a rack next to sime "hip looking jeans" at Wal Mart, doesn't mean it that they are "in style"

That's right. He gets paid well. The only people you should tip are those subject to antiquated federal and state minimum wage laws, which give tipped employees something like $2.00 an hour in standard pay. I can guarantee that the DirecTV installation guy makes far more than that.

Ditto...my 2 cents...no tip but a bottle of water
At least that's what my gardeners come to expect!

yes yes, since he was here around noon we were getting lunch, and we offered to get him something, especially since he seemed to like the place we were going to grab something. he refused, but we did make him take something to drink when he left. he wouldn't drink anything before when he was installing everything.
