    I used to tip them, until one of our cars got stolen, and of course, the car guard saw nothing ...

    I always tip the few that I have come to know and to trust and will always look out for them and park in their area. They are trying just as hard as the next person to make a living. Very unthankfull job if you ask me.

    I do not have a car yet. When I am on my bike, no. I don't tip them.

    Fortunatly they do not bug me either Well, sometimes while I am removing my helmet or putting it on they came come up to me and the bike and ask a few questions or look at the speedometer.etc lol

    If they do that I am always friendly to them.


    Another thing I have noticed is that at robots. The guys who sell stuff, they never really bother you, although some will greet you in one way or another. I normally just nod my head as I do not like the idea of putting my bike into neutral at a robot and I normally have my hands busy - one holding in the clutch and I normally hold in the front brakes just incase.
