We always tip

I have just read Duncan Barkes’s article concerning tipping and we seem to be the abnormal!

We always tip the postman at Christmas (even if he has forgotten to give us a card ) as he is the best.

If we are not in, he will always find places to hide our package with a note through the door.

Throughout the year this must be well worth the petrol savings and frustration going to pick up, only to find it shut!

Similarly £10 goes to the bin men who do a splendid job – however, judging by the number of bins that don’t get put away neatly every week in our close, we could again be in the minority but it does make us smile.
