Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Tipping During The Holidays

It’s that time of the year when you might be thinking about giving a tip to your service providers and like me, may be confused as to how much is appropriate or even if it’s necessary.

I normally leave a cash tip for the trash collectors but never know how many are on the truck; the mail carriers, but they change so often and sometimes don’t arrive until after dark; and the newspaper deliverer who throws my paper under the tree instead of in the driveway!

So this year, instead of cash, I am thinking about giving them Wawa gift cards which can be used for either gas or food – what do you think?

In yesterday’s paper there was an article by Jonnelle Marte of The Washington Post with some suggestions from the Emily Post Institute that may help with that decision.



I love reading your comments!
