if someone gave you a tip, would you accept or be like no thanks? I was doing an installation today and the customer told me that they were on a budget. When I got done with the install, the customer offered me a tip and I usually don't take tips. I would usually tell them no, that's ok, but they always insist and give it to me. With this customer, i really didn't want to take their money since they are on a budget and they can use the money towards bills or something. I told her no, that's ok and they was like are you sure and I said yeah.
