I have friends and family members that work for the Post Office. It wasn't until they told me that this was common practice that I even thought about it. So, SodaHeads? Do you leave an envelope for your mail carriers around the holidays?

    They do have a hard job at times you are 100%. But I know I can not afford to tip every one in life can you? I wish I had that much money.

    Not just no but hell no....they suck, and are the reason I haven't gotten paid in over a month...and am having to wait another week or so to get it resolved. It is the same mail carrier we have had for a very long time, and she is constantly giving other people the wrong mail. I get a paper check right now because we are in transition of changing banks, and apparently someone got my check and decided they would take this giving time of year to go give themselves some money they didn't earn. They are SO busted though....which is justice, not only on the civil level, but on the federal level as well, as she is facing federal charges of mail fraud, or tampering with mail. She will be going away for a long time...I hope that measly check was worth it! LMAO!!!

    We don't do tipping in australia but I understand why americans do because the min wage is so low. I've heard of posties getting 'special' suprises from housewives if you get my drift

    Why would I? It's their job to put the mail in the box, and they already get paid for that. Nobody tips me for doing my job. I don't understand this tipping bullshit. If someone goes above and beyond their duties to satisfy me, I will tip them. You don't tip people for just doing their job, STUPID!

    How about waitresses and bartenders? They get paid to serve you. Do you tip them?

    Absolutely not. Unless they go out of their way to make sure my dining experience is a pleasant one. If the waitress smiles and is friendly and accomodating I will tip her. Otherwise why should I? It's her job to serve me. Same with bartenders. If they keep me waiting and only serve the chicks or whatever or make weak drinks, no tip.

    Do you tip your garbage man too? Or your banker? Or your hairstylist? Or your mechanic or whoever?

    Well if somone works hard for their tip, then they deserve it. No one deserves a tip for just doing their job though.

    I have to add that federal employees get paid quite handsomely to deliver our mail, not to mention the job benefits they receive as well, I am sure I need my money more than they need my money....LOL

    I hardly see the mail carrier...she/he drives up to our mailboxes that are all together in our little community and drop them in everyones locked box.
