We are tipping the mailman, wife's hairdresser, our housekeepers...

We've now received two envelopes from the person that delivers the Sunday Charlotte Observer heavily hinting at a gratuity.

It's a little off putting

I used to get those too. Made cancelling my subscription that much easier.

I like getting a Sunday paper still off putting if we were going to tip them

Now it's that much easier to not

I'd tip them every other year or so.

When I was a kid I delivered a morning paper in upstate NY - rode my bike when I could - when I couldnt ride my bike cause of the weather, Id deliver it on foot through the snow - I never had to ask for any Christmas tips - but I got them anyway. I never failed to deliver a paper that I got dropped off to me by the boss man and folks were grateful - this was the pre internet days and before you had but about 2 stations of fuzz on the television to watch. Although the radio had been invented.

Stop being such a tight ass panthro. They shouldnt have to ask for a tip but if they have earned it give it to them anyway.

Apparently there are a lot of cheapskates in the Charlotte area that necessitate such envelopes and hints at giving gratuities.

Housekeepers? wow

Fug tipping the mailman, overpaid and underworked sucking billions out of the economy every year.

Although if I could afford housekeepers I'd be in position to tip unneccesarily, so just tip the fuging paperboy Mr. Buxton
