I paid $15.00 plus tax to have a racquest strung yesterday at a retail establishment. (I supplied the strings.) The kid who strung it always does a nice job with my sticks, and gets them done in a few hours so I can pick them up on my way home from work. I tipped him $2.00 yesterday. It was the first time I tipped him and he has probably strung 10 raquets for me. Was that a little tight? I feel now that I should have given him a fin.
