no. the 250 covers their charges. you dont pay people extra for fixing ur car at a shop.

no need to tip. he is already getting paid to install the windshield.

the pizza guy is getting paid hourly to deliver the pizza so you shouldn't tip him either.

Because the hourly rate for (most) waiters is like 2 bucks (or something very below minimum wage) an hour. They live off tips.
