Default How do Villagers do it ?

Greetings -
Now that the holiday season is approaching, I'm seeking guidance on how most here tip / show gratitude towards those who serve our needs all year round.

Does the typical Villager tip during the holiday season and if so, how much and to whom? As a point of reference, where I came from I always tipped the garbage guys, post man, UPS guy, pharmacist, grocery employees, accountant, house cleaning lady and lawn guy.

Any constructive advice appreciated. Thanks

I have not figured out a good way to tip the recycling and trashmen, I do not like the idea of leaving an envelop of cash clipped to the bags, any ideas?

I hand it to them and I throw my own trash in the back of the truck (I do this a dozen times per year). They seem to appreciate it.

Default Postal

Postal workers are government employees. They are not suppose to except tips. This coming from my mother who was a lifetime career government employee.

Postal workers in TV are independent contractors, not gov't employees--just like rural mail deliverers
