Question for you frequent flyer type folks...

My 76 year old momma is flying alone Tuesday morning to CA and will be needing wheel chair assistance...she can walk, just not long distances.

My uncle, who has sent for her to go out there, contacted both airports and the wheelchairs will be waiting for her.

She was wondering...should she tip the person who assists her?!

Oh, and please help me pray for the girl...I won't be there to watch her every move and I'm concerned, ya know?!

I would think that would be customary to tip a bit.

Thank you...I know you would someone who helped with bags and such, but wasn't sure what to answer her.

I agree; a small tip would be appropriate in this case. I hope she enjoys her trip!

Isn't it strange how we have to start being the "parents" at some point? I don't like the role reversal!!

I know, hon...you should have seen us in the store this past winter. I wrote the check and was preparing to go get the car...I said, "Now mom, don't forget to button up your coat!!"

We ought to be on TV...!!

I just tried to call my mom in San Diego to get her flight number as she is flying home tomorrow night. My uncle answered that the girl is at the beach!!

Mercy sakes...

He told me not to worry...that she is taking care if herself and is wearing a hat out in the sun...*sigh*

Guess she doesn't need me!!

No seriously, I am thrilled that she got to go to a place she's never been and spend time with her only brother. I'm looking forward to her cockeyed pictures...she is not the best I'm telling you...:sshhh

I never use them but have been told that the Skycaps and such make most of their living off tips so I would think that would be nice to do for them.

I would think five bucks at each end would be plenty and if she can't afford that even three bucks. Kind of like valet parking! My son does that and the usual tip is four or five bucks but he has people that tip him $10, $10, and even $50 bucks!!!
