Can someone explain the "bring a 6 pack of beer and the mechanic will suck your dick meme"?

I don't understand. If the beer is worth less than the fee, why would the mechanic work for a 6-pack of beer? If you pay the fee, why would you need a 6-pack of beer on top of that to make sure the mechanic does a good job? Further more why would I want a drunk person working on my bike or telling me about bikes?

iunno but one time the shop said not to charge me and the shop girl was a megaqt and I wasn't sure if she was hitting on me or what so I never went back there because I'd probably propose marriage to her and she would laugh at me and say not in a million years

on the bright side it motivated me to spend like $400 on tools and a workstand and stuff, so that I never have to show my face in there again and humiliate myself in front of my future wife

>Can someone explain the "bring a 6 pack of beer and the mechanic will suck your dick meme"?
Because getting a six pack is fucking nice?

>If the beer is worth less than the fee, why would the mechanic work for a 6-pack of beer?
He likely wouldn't.

>If you pay the fee, why would you need a 6-pack of beer on top of that to make sure the mechanic does a good job?
You shouldn't NEED to, but it can't hurt.

>Further more why would I want a drunk person working on my bike or telling me about bikes?
Yes, because if you buy a sixer, you have to drink a sixer. (Not to mention, a bike mechanic is probably into session IPA's that're like 4% alcohol. Sixer of that isn't getting you drunk.)

Bike mechanic isn't a normal job, it's cool, and cool people get beer.
Alternative jobs have alternative culture.

I'm not a bike mechanic, I deliver pizzas, broooooo.

>and you think you deserve special treatment because you wanted a "fun" job
No, I'm just saying that's the culture surrounding the job in a lot of places and both the mechanics and the people giving the beer seem down with it.
Obviously, not all mechanics are created equal. There's a difference between a hip place in Philly and a guy in Haddonfield.

>and your days consists of complaining about bike mechanic problems instead of real problems. Got it.
What's the problem? OP asked why bike mechanics get beer, and the answer is bike/messenger/tinkerer culture.
Sucks to suck if you don't like it but that's the answer.

That's what happens when you don't get a real job. You live on beer handouts and make up memes on the internet why people should give you beer to do your job.

the best way to explain it is, dont be a fucking autist, guys who work with their hands all day like to go home and drink beer, its been that way since men had hands and beer, if you buy a man with hands a beer for his hands, he'll like you more.

Why would you pay someone $5-$10, or more if you listen to whiny bike mechanics who say you have to tip in good beer, tip ahead of time, bring a 6 pack in case you might tip for a job well done or whatever because a bike mechanic wipes down your rims with some soapy water and a rag?

If your rim needs replacing, then a mechanic who is going to look for that is already motivated in order to make a sale. If not, he's not going to look for it, beer or not. A discount? A discount on what? He's sure as hell not actually replacing your rim. So he gives you a $5-10 discount on a shitty take-off wheel, which happens to be how much you spent on beer? All on the off-chance your wheels need replacing and you didn't realize it.

This is the retarded delusional entitlement all bike mechanics have. Fucking autismos.

>he'll like you more
Good thing I'm not gay, and I don't actually have a need for a drunk bicycle mechanic that will do a shit job anyways. Some people might want to have a greasy gay casual sex friend, not me. I have no reason to get all friendly with a high school dropout punk with entitlement issues.

do anything as a job and it stops being fun long enough, especially when it involves customer service at any level, you'd know that if you ever had a job

And you make up stories about them to justify not having to be nice to someone

you know you can go to a mechanic and he'll just work on your bike for no beer right, just dont bring him the beer

If you're going to be a this much of an autist when speaking with other people, then just ask the bike mechanic these three things:

>how much they charge for a particular service
>what the service exactly entails
>how long it will take

And get a service slip with your signed authorization. Fuck off, /n/

what do you mean just dont bring beer, if someone does it once, I have to do it every time because now all bike mechanics feel entitled to every customer bringing them a 6 pack of beer, and a bottle of wine from before they were born, and letting them keep their bike after they're done fixing it!

nothing is a simple token of gratitude, everything must be done exactly a certain way and I'm tired of buying my mechanic so much beer and tipping him 45% every time I need to change a flat tire!

But OP isn't asking why people give bike mechanics beers out of being nice and friendly. OP is asking about why LBS mechanics act entitled to beer to do their jobs, or claim they'll give discounts greater than the value of the beer.

This entire thread is why I've never paid a bicycle mechanic a penny to do anything. Maybe there will be some day where the tools cost more than it costs to get the job done like facing a bottom bracket.

Mechanic here - tipping in beer is unusual, at least where I work. Cash tips happen occasionally, but the most common kind of gratuity is homemade cookies or other baked goods, sometimes donuts or pizza.

That said, if you think the service you'll get at a bike shop is based on past tipping behavior, you're mistaken.
1. Discounts are generally given to disadvantaged customers we want to support, or to regular customers who spend money at our shop frequently, not in anticipation of tips, because:
2. we deal with thousands of people in a season, so if you're not a regular, we're not going to remember you regardless of any tips (or rude behavior), and
3. whether you're the shop owner or hired mechanic, you simply cannot work in this field without being aware of the costs involved - you cannot pay your bills, or buy a box of brake cables, with beer. If you find someone willing to 'work for beer,' they're either a fool or actively choosing to give something away.

>>968904

The whole beer tipping thing became a somewhat popular concept online a few years ago because of the connection between bike-riding and beer-drinking hipsterism.

The body metabolizes alcohol much faster with the increased heartrate and metabolism. Easier to get tipsy or drunk after exercise.

I've never understood why degenerates consider "ease of getting drunk" to be a problem that needs complex solutions like timing your drinking to coincide with exercise, or whatever

Here's a scientifically proven idea that applies to all mood altering substances: increase the dose

It would be one thing if it was teenagers who have practical reasons to be concerned about rationing their illegal contraband, but I see grown adults talking about alcohol like it's unaffordable or otherwise impractical to get drunk and it's critical to share special insider tips on how to get drunk faster and more efficiently

You people ever heard of overproof spirits? Any liquor store sells them, they're not expensive either

Beer isn't empty calories, neither is wine. Sure they are not the best source of nutrition but it is not "empty."

Hard liquor is closer to being empty calories when consumed alone but even that probably has a little something in it.

idiots who love small businesses (usually liberals) tend not to have a lot of self esteem (abolish the second ammendement BECAUSE I PERSONALLY CAN'T EVERRRR OWN A GUN ITS TOO SCARRRYYY!!!!!" types)

and perpetuate femnism despite being males because they feel as though women are better than they are just for being women

so they tend to feel like they owe small business owners something, be it loyalty or some sort of misguided one way friendship because they paid attention to the liberal moron for more than 5 mins

local bike store owners, local game store owners and comic book shop owners all just sort of play along because hey it's free food and money from somebody's lack of self esteem so why not right?

there is a reason deep down inside that you like small business more and desire a sort of fake friendship/patronage from a company

are you really that empty inside that you really need a mom and pop store to act like your friend while you hand them cash?

because i'd rather save 50% and go shop at target for my groceries or go to performance bike for my parts from a nameless/faceless corporation with a warranty and a return policy than play buddy buddy with some dude i couldn't give a fuck about all day
