Another "Tipping" Story


Patch

Recommended Posts

Having worked in the service industry I am a pretty good tipper. Not extravagant, but I do take care of people that deserve it. I only tipped in a golf store once. The guy was helping me with a driving iron and I went in with a preconceived idea with a game improvement 2 driving iron. Well, the guy sized me up and we ended up going with the player's model 3 iron which I was just hitting ropes with and almost as long as the 2 irons. I went to check out and asked he person if the guys worked on commission and the answer was no. So I went back and handed the guy a ten and said I am buying you a drink and left. The guy did his job, went out of his way, and provided a superior customer service experience.

So, did you ever buy him a drink?  And meet again?

Lol, i have no idea what he did with the money.

Now I get my regular clubfitter a bottle of Vodka every few months. I send him so much business he rarely charges me full price for anything so I drop off a bottle as a thank you.
