    So, I was in a bit of a car accident and did some damage to my dad's girlfriends car. We took it to the shop besdie my work because i know all the guys there. The real quote is for $3800 but they've brought it down to just over $1900 for me. Now i always get their first round whenever they come in. I've also sent over some pizzas the last couple of days while they've been working on the car. Question is should i tip them as well? Do mechanics usually get tips? How much should I give?

    Car accidents suck.

    throw them 2g and let them divide it between the people who actually worked on the car.

    good mechanics that don't fuck you in the ass are hard to find. Think of it like you could basically spend up to 900 bucks on them and you'd still only be paying the regular. Even if the price chop isn't a big deal, if they do it right and on time... fuck why not. In addition they'll also see it in the light that when they do good for you... you'll do right by them and won't even think about skimping. It never hurts to put in a little extra. Don't lavish them with gifts, just let them know their efforts haven't gone unappreciated or noticed.

    Tips?? IMO i dunno about that BUT.....

    if they're real mechanics....

    the best thing is repeat bidnazz.......

    bring your friends to the place, and yourself next time your wheels need some grease....


    or booze

    booze helps with people who turn nutz n' bolts for a living :^)
