Here's a Tip: 'Tis The Merry Season!
Catalogs keep on coming.
Your mailbox is stuffed with holiday sales cheer. Over stuffed.
The refuse collector truck slows down and they take a little longer to pick up your trash... just in case you want to come out and thank them.
(When my Dad used to put out extra large piles of scraps from his shop, he'd place a cold 6-pack of Pepsi on top. Especially on hot humid days.)
Nor the trash man suggesting that a monetary remuneration would be appreciated for the fine job they do hauling away things from me.
I'm usually not awake when the delivery person makes his/her rounds.
Every morning though, when I open the door, there it is.
If it's rainy and damp out, the paper is double bagged to keep it fresh for me to spread out on my kitchen table.
This morning, inside the bag with the news, was a Merry Christmas card in a blank white envelope.
The card was stamped with a name and a mailing address. Pretty slick!
You'd think the Postal Service would have thought of that as a logical way to let me easily reward my mail carrier.
I'll figure it out.
Also on Trash Day.

Remember, Tipping is NOT a city in China.
