When you come home to a pool of water and find yourself emergency dialing your trusty plumber, it takes all of your willpower to mutter about the unplanned cost too loudly. So when you receive the final bill the added worry of tipping on the spot is that little extra aggravation no one wants to face.
The good news is: unlike many services today, plumbers don’t expect a tip.
The next time you encounter flooding or backed up drains (who knew carrots and lettuce could do such damage to a disposal?!?!) you can sleep a little better knowing that your exact payment covered the bill.
