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.

The weird letters were more off putting than anything.

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.
