If it's an owner of a one-person business, I will tip. Clearly this person is not rolling in cash but working hard like the rest of us. If the owner is the owner of what appears to be a multi employee successful business, I would be reluctant to tip that owner.

You do what you feel is right or can afford. I choose to give these mail people a bit more than lunch at McDonalds. They do a good job
