As a professional counter person, YES YOU CAN TIP US! Should we demand you tip us? Fuck no. But if the person behind the counter is helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly, hells yeah you can give them a little sumthin’. We definitely appreciate it because some of us do a whole lot of work and receive none of the glory. Also, some of us are damn poor so being able to treat ourselves to an iced coffee or fancy candy bar is pretty awesome.
I get the most frustrated with Yelp reviews. Ill spend 20 to 45 mins with a person helping them go through tons of options for a piercing, giving advice on what will look best, what color suits there complexion, asking questions about types of colors they usually wear etc…..and then they go back get pierced then i ring them out…..Yelp review comes out and i am NOWHERE in it. Come on people! I spent a large amount of time hand picking the perfect piece of jewelry for you and i get stiffed!
