    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.

    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.
    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    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.
