Default Beach chair guy/gal

So you head to the beach and report to the little booth to get a couple of beach chairs. A nice young woman or man walks you to a couple of chairs, puts a cover on it, plants an umbrella and gives you a towel.

Do you tip this person, if so how much?

At this point the person is doing their job,so,I would not tip. If I ask for, or he/she offers something out if the ordinary,I would certainly, gladly tip.

I tend to believe they are expecting a tip, so a few dollars each would be in order...Yea, it is their job, but you could of easily, turned down their offer of carring the chairs, etc...
