this morning i had to run to a nursery up the block. i needed just a weeping maple and a Pom pom, no big deal, and see the sod delivery schedule. anyway, i bough the maple and the pom pom. the maple was retail $260, he charged me $150 cash. pompom was $110, charged me $90. i made a little dough for doing virtually no labor. The guy that runs the nursery during the week is just a manager, not the owner. I tiped the amigo for loading my truck up, but not the manger/casheir. i wondered after if i should've thrown him $20 bucks... do you tip "that" guy usaully? I never have in 6 years, but today it seemed he gave me a bigger then usaul discount on the maple.
