At Christmas I tip the
2 the bin men
3the paper boy
4 the window cleaner if he comes before Christmas
I give the postie,bin men a fiver, the paperboy gets two or three and I round up the window cleaner to the nearest five.
I was surprised when the postman tells me I'm a rarity these days. He also said that when it was common place the best tips were always from the poorer areas.
I always tip at Christmas and it pays off. If I forget my bins they still get emptied, my regular postman knows were to put my parcels. The window cleaner, locks my gate and the paperboy never forces my newspaper into the letter box. So is tipping these people getting rarer?
