When it comes to the holidays, it seems like everyone and their brother expects to be tipped. Now, I’m in no way anti-service industry folks, but I just can’t afford to tip everyone.
When you tip, how do you tip? Do you do it with cash? A gift card? A goodie?
I’ve never met our newspaper delivery person, and she provided an envelope with her address on it for us. I don’t like sending cash, so I’ll send her a gift card to Starbucks.
I’m thinking about leaving our trash collectors a plate full of goodies (wrapped well, of course) because I’m skeptical of leaving even a card containing cash or a gift card outside, regardless of how much I trust our neighbors.
Who all do you tip? Is there anyone you tip more than others? Are there any people you think it’s ridiculous to tip?
