question about directv

okay, so we're getting directv installed in our house as we speak. the weird thing is, is that my husband said we should tip the guy who's installing the stuff. i've never heard of this before. i know a lot of people here have it and i was wondering if you guys tipped or not.

thanks!

You may offer the installer a cold drink, but tipping is not customary.

I never tipped the guy who installed my Directv. I didn't even think about it.
I only tip in restaurants nowhere else.

Maybe they will start leaving "Tip" jars on your television while they are installing the dish.

I really don't like the recent surge in "Tip" jars.
