    Those are really generous.
    We give our mailman a nice tip.
    I'm never sure what to do about UPS....it's random different people and I have no idea who will end up getting it.
    Do you give it to a particular driver that you know?

    Garbage men, tip them year round and they'll take anything I put out. Lawn gets mowed on Thursday and there is always a cooler of Tecates on ice for mi amigos who do a little extra more.

    They're WAY better than the post office, but make a pretty good living where I live. Also, I hardly ever use them, so fuck it.

    Unless I have a regular service provider that I know like a housekeeper I don't tip.

    We also give the local cops who patrol our neighborhood DD gift certificates and donate to their causes to get my get out of speeding ticket card every year.

    I'll give something to the cleaning crew though the service I use changes them around a lot. The postal carrier delivers my mail to a community mail box so screw them. I just gave all my employees between $1000 and $5000 each depending on how long they've been with me (actually they won't get it until the Dec 10th payday). I order candy boxes for my repeat customers as most can't receive personal gifts from me.

    We give the nanny a week off, and a year end bonus so the taxes come out right.
