Default Who do you tip for the holidays?

I gave USPS, UPS and FedEx each $20 in a card. **** the garbage man cause he left me his home address and I felt like that was a scumbag move.

First year I tipped anyone, so I'm curious to see how many others do.

We give a gift to our USPS lady, usually gloves or a scarf or thermal socks. Fedex and UPS guys change all the time, so they get nothing. Barber gets a tip or a bottle of something.

I tip my local bartender a Clint Eastwood classic... "A few dollars more". I also give him a relic from my memory of the year, and a bottle of good beer for him to try.

I give strippers $2 bills instead of 1's. I also hold a tooth pick in my mouth while whispering things in their ear like, "if I was your baby daddy, I'd pay that child support...know what I'm sayin?"

UPS guy $20. He's been on the route for a decade...great guy.

Servers usually get 25% from me if they aren't rude or full retard.

Our neighbor tipped our garbage people by parking his giant truck in front of our house...like he does every garbage day.

I've never heard of people tipping package handlers, etc. for the holidays.

My wife baked cookies for the meter reader, the mailman and the garbage men. Who doesn't like fresh chocolate chip cookies?
