We recently started getting a newspaper delivered in the morning. The delivery person put a holiday greeting card in today’s paper, with her address listed. Are we supposed to send her a tip?
Well, that’s the suggestion from her, and it is pretty customary to send a check. Back in the days when neighborhood children had paper routes and had to collect payment for the paper every week, a small tip was usually added to the fee. Now that adults do this job, it’s a perpetuation of that custom, even though you probably have never even seen the delivery person. It’s up to you, but it is a way to thank her for her services, assuming she does a good job.
