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.



I agree..servers, bartenders..valet..of course..but I'm sorry, I'm not going to tip people that I have no idea who they are

garbage men? really??


I think it is just a neighborhood thing. You put an envelope on the can. Maybe the recycling too.

Generally I am with you though I want preferential treatment for my tip. At my local pub overseas the barman would have my carlsberg poured before I could get to him even if there were 5 people waiting. THAT is what a good tipper should get.

I doubt the garbageman remembers a good tip but i consider it a good holiday act.

Garbage trucks here have mechanical arms that pick up the can and dump it. If I put a tip on it it'd just be dumped in the truck.

Not that I'd tip someone for driving slowly down my street while a machine picks up things.

The garbagemen pay special attention the last pickup before Christmas.

These garbagemen aren't dumb

Brokers, plumbers, those are different. Sure, technically it's a service, but it's a contract service. I was speaking more towards service and delivery industry. Retaurant/bar staff, hair people, delivery people of all sorts, cleaners, house keepers. Those types.
