Tipping and Praying
Old 07-16-2019, 10:05 AM

1. Tipping- my mother is moving from out of state to be near me as I type this. The movers are going to unload her things at her new place and then they will bring 3 items to my house 3 miles away. How much should I tip? None of the items are heavy- just too big to fit in a car.
2. If you are a praying person, please say a prayer that my mom makes this drive to central NC safely. It’s 2 hours and on major interstates. She is not a confident driver and is not used to traffic at all. She turned 81 two days ago.

1. Tipping for me would depend on how much your mom is tipping. If she gives them a good tip then I’d give them $20 each for the additional delivery. If she forgets to tip, I’d cover for her and tell them it’s for both.
2. I am thinking of your mom. I’m not a confident long-distance driver either. Fingers crosses—and please let us know when she arrives safely.

Amiga nailed it in regards to the tipping. I will definitely say a prayer for your mom that she arrives safely. It’s wondeful she is moving to be closer to you.

I agree with Amiga's advice on tipping.

I will be praying for your mom. I totally understand why you would be nervous. My mom is 85, and MIL is 84. They both still drive.

Praying that your mom arrives safely, if she hasn't already!

Thank you!!!

My mom arrived safely at 4:00. I feel like I can breathe now- she is away from my unstable brother and safe. Thank you so much!

PS I tipped each man $25. They worked so hard. One looked like the Rock and the other one looked like Idris Elba. That might possibly have had something to do with me throwing in a little extra $!

I’m glad that your Mom arrived safely. As for the tipping, there’s nothing wrong in rewarding the “eye candy” mover guys!!
