[Cyclelicious] New comment on Tipping the wrench?.

Arleigh has left a new comment on your post "Tipping the wrench?":

As a professional mechanic for the past 8 years I can tell you tipping is very uncommon. I would say out of the 100 bike builds or repairs that are done maybe 2 come back with a tip, or 6 pack. Normally it's the guy you do favors for or just good guy.

I've been at shops that don't allow it. Maybe they felt they paid enough to not warrant it, or it was bad class but it wasn't allowed.

Personally I have mixed feelings. Yes if I'm doing a favor I want a thank you, but money isn't always needed. A coffee sometimes is better.
