I tip the peeps at my local Kinkos. They've done great work for me in the past, and since I started tipping for the holidays, I can't remember the last time I heard "We have a couple jobs to get to before yours. We'll start on it first thing tomorrow."

Above and beyond....

When we were getting all our wedding gifts delivered nonstop last year I gave the UPS guy some extra money as he was going above and beyond for us. Servers get a min of 20% as I worked on tips through college (next on the main stage Panthro).


It's just weird and off putting to get several letters like we did from the guy delivering our paper once a week.

Since the envelopes don't identify you specifically I am prone to write out a note about what exceptional service from a paper delivery person would look like.

I'll tip the mailman since my dogs have nearly given him a heart attack at least twice.

I never knew you were supposed to tip anyone at Christmas.

I do give the mail lady a Christmas card and a tin of home baked goodies.

The cleaning lady gets what ever she wants.

I read the news online.

We tip mailman, garbageman and paper delivery. Also staff/bartenders at the local golf course.

Last year I actually tipped the security guy in my section because he was there all year and was cool and hell. OF course they switched him out this year.

i don't do any of that.

Must be a Northern thing.

If you work as a server/bus boy/bartender or at a hotel and you park/retrieve my car or carry my bags, you will get a tip. Otherwise no.

Tip anyone that provides a service. Some of you are some cheap fugs.

Yeah I don't like being told to tip. But unfortunately some people think that they don't ever need to tip anyone so a friendly reminder is necessary. Maybe they thought a letter was less brash than an envelope with just "gratuity" written on it.

Of course I haven't seen said letter in order to draw a proper opinion.

Not cheap at all.

I just don't understand tipping a plummer when he already has his profit built into the quote.

Would you tip your real estate broker, even after they had just received a 5K check from helping you buy a home?

Where does it stop....or does it?

Pizza delivery guy...absolutely.....hair person....sure...garbage man...probably not.

Go out of the way and roll my can back up to my house, and I will re think that, however I have to pick it up off of it's side every Wednesday when I get home from work.
