I'm bored right now. Have any of you ever done a little something for someone because you know you'll be depending on them to do something for you? I'm not talking about anything unethical or against the law here. Maybe you do this w/ your gardener, babysitter, etc. (Tipping is different because it's done AFTER something's done.) The rare occasion when my parents were about to have a minor surgery, they've given the dr a box of candy. In a small way, the dr's going to think about how he was treated & hopefully go above & beyond. My BF's having some auto work done that will (hopefully) get his car to pass smog & I JOKED that he should mention to the mechanic that he (my BF) has the chance to write internet reviews on places & to ask the mechanic, he wouldn't want a bad review written for all to see would he! But my BF's not going to go that far to say that. I, however definitely do post reviews on a lot of places I've been to.
