Default Re: Crush on my Mail Lady

I have 3 grown kids who still live in the same town as I do, but living in apartments, so they get their packages delivered to my house. Seems like hardly a day goes by that something from Amazon doesn't show up.
My mailman deserves a medal AND a card with something in it.

Most of the service industry relies on tips for a decent living. It's a decision you have to make for yourself because there are a lot of folks who could use a tip. US Postal workers are government employees like myself, we are doing pretty well on average. I try to spend my tip dollars on people that are underpaid and doing a little more than expected, but I am a sucker and those who come even close get a small tip anyway.

Just remember... At the end of the day... That waitress is probably making upwards of $25/hr unless you're stuck in Wisconsin making $2something an hour + tips

Brings up one of my fav restaurants; a serve yourself Buffet (Chinese food and its all darned good!) Basically, she brings you a pot of hot tea and removes your dishes. (Well, mine are pretty small save for the fresh fruit one. There I eat 'more than my share.')

Do I always leave a 'tip,' yes, but sometimes wondered the why.

It could just be a nice gesture on her part without a need monetary reward. Some people still do those kind of things.

Depends where you are and how good you are at it. At a good restaurant in a sizable town yes. I definitely know a lot of waitresses that work hard for half that figure. And many of them have to because they made bad choices. Many states have that 2 bucks an hour plus tips thing.
