T'is the season at which we generally give gifts to people who do things for
us through the year. Who do you tip--postman--paper deliverer--hair stylist--
trash people-someone else? And how much?
(My sister never tipped the people who deliver the papers...until she found out how much her sister...who delivers papers in another state..depends on

Quoting QANTASforever (Reply 4): I used to really annoy me the amount of tipping I had to do when I lived in the US. Drove me insane
The only time when I don't tip is when traveling abroad and the "Service XX% included" is deliberately crossed off the bill when presented, after the server finds out I'm American. I won't even leave the few coins of change.

Quoting Go3Team (Reply 7): Where would one leave a tip for the paper person?
Ours slip a Christmas card into the paper..which carries their home address.
Since one manages to get the paper in by 3:15am, the other by 5:30, rain, shine, or hurricane, I very much appreciate their efforts. Used to get the Sunday NY Times by 11pm Saturday night...about the time the early edition was available in NYC.
