You've got it wrong.
The reason to tip is based on Karma. In the case of pump-out it makes a shitty job more pleasant.
When you're waiting it can also make a difference whether you're next on the list or last. Same situation with launch operators -- we always tip, and the launch drivers practically fight over who picks us up while other boaters wait.
Grasshopper.... Some people leave no wake. Others disturb the area with theirs. Who do you want to be?
