    So who tips their mail carriers, UPS FED EX, DHL?


    Just wondering I see my UPS guy almost everyweek. He has gotten so good it seems he knows my schedule. I never see a yellow tag on my door anymore just that familiar knock and package sound.

    I do occasionally when I've been ordering a lot of heavy **** in a short period of time. Otherwise no.

    As a grumpy side note, I think it's a crock to tip waiters/waitresses at restaurants, I don't get a tip when I'm extra friendly at the cash register.

    That's kind of how I feel, except when my ORD boxes, rims, (4) lo-pros on 20" rims (for my friend), and welder came he has to carry them all the way up our driveway since his truck doesn't have the departure angle to go up it, pretty soon he's gonna have to carry a bender and a whole bunch of other stuff. :D

    I've been in the restaurant industry before.....it sucks. But man those people live on their tips. Minimum wage, less, or even have to pay for a spot in some upper class places.

    I understand, and don't mean to sound unsympathetic but there are a ton of jobs that start at minimum wage, including two of mine when I started them, that are not tipped that are far worse than food service.

    Mr. Pink: I'm very sorry the government taxes their tips, that's ****ed up. That ain't my fault. It would seem to me that waitresses are one of the many groups the government ****s in the ass on a regular basis. Look, if you ask me to sign something that says the government shouldn't do that, I'll sign it, put it to a vote, I'll vote for it, but what I won't do is play ball. And as for this non-college bull**** I got two words for that: learn to ****in' type, 'cause if you're expecting me to help out with the rent you're in for a big ****in' surprise.

    Nice Guy Eddie: C'mon, throw in a buck!
    Mr. Pink: Uh-uh, I don't tip.
    Nice Guy Eddie: You don't tip?
    Mr. Pink: Nah, I don't believe in it.
    Nice Guy Eddie: You don't believe in tipping?
    Mr. Blue: You know what these chicks make? They make ****.
    Mr. Pink: Don't give me that. She don't make enough money that she can quit.
    Nice Guy Eddie: I don't even know a ****ing Jew who'd have the balls to say that. Let me get this straight: you don't ever tip?
    Mr. Pink: I don't tip because society says I have to. All right, if someone deserves a tip, if they really put forth an effort, I'll give them something a little something extra. But this tipping automatically, it's for the birds. As far as I'm concerned, they're just doing their job.
    Mr. Blue: Hey, our girl was nice.
    Mr. Pink: She was okay. She wasn't anything special.
    Mr. Blue: What's special? Take you in the back and suck your d!ck?
    Nice Guy Eddie: I'd go over twelve percent for that.

    I agree. It got old listening to servers complaining because they only got a 10% tip, shut up and get another job. Most servers complain unless they make more than $100 a night in tips. There are plenty worse off, it is the restaurants fault that tipping has carried over into so many other industries, eventhe garbage guy. But hey who wouldn't want a soda or beer if your picking up garbage all day.

    Tips go to the pizza delivery, barber, waiter/waitress, bellhop, and the kids.

    a friend of mine leaves a tip to his garbage man when he throws out questionable stuff (heavy items, toxics, etc), and they always dispose of his stuff with a smile....I've thought about it a few times.

    do i need to tip to ensure you do a good job? not me
    pizza delivery? sometimes ill tip, not always though ( i order from different places so the dont put **** in my pizza

    OK I'll admit I tip the sh!t outta waitresses, especially if I'm a regular and I have paid off the garbage man to keep my unmentionables,,,,,Well unmentionable...I once had a guy walk up to me from outta nowwhere and give me 20 bucks, told me to spread the wealth, I'm not stingy, it just takes so long to squeeze that penny into a buck...:haha: :D
