I tip my mail carrier.
I am an eBay junkie and I run this woman ragged. She places my packages carefully at my door which is hundreds of feet from my mailbox and has left insurance claim forms with abused packages when her handling predecessors haven't been so careful.
And she has done this in 100° plus weather.
No matter what you say about the USPS, my carrier is a gem:)

$15 in a used envelope marked, "Thanks for 2012!"
They like cash.

My carrier is terrific. Once received an envelope with my name and street, no building number. Give her $50 in an envelope each year.

If you give cash you are only allowed to give up to $20. If it was accepted they broke the rules and could suffer the consequences. I have had the same mail carrier for years and know her personally. Some years ago I had a box of Spode Christmas tree pattern mugs that retail for $45. I paid about 2 buck for each and gave her one of those. Each year I have given her several more pieces in the pattern. She can almost set a table with it and loves the Spode. This year I gave her a sandwich tray and another mug. Because I buy in the secondary market I can give nice things and stay under the $20 limit.

My mail carrier is a young Latino guy and all I want to do is tap his ass.

Mary! How exactly would the postal service prove someone accepted a cash gift? And btw frau R4. ALL cash is forbidden as a gift by the postal service, not just $20. ALL cash. Nobody pays any attention to that silly rule. My mail carrier is delighted to get cash every year.

How's the cube, R8? Cat-filled?

[R9] Why would you hope I am a troll? Why does following the established ethical rules make one a troll? I don't know a single person besides myself that tips the mail carrier. Am I a troll because of the gifts I do give?
I also tip my newspaper carrier.

My mail carrier is fantastic too. I always give her some home-baked goodies and slip a $50 AE gift card into her Christmas card envelope.

r11 I might slip a $20 in his back pocket the next time I grab his ass on the elevator

One of my mail carriers gave me a tip one year... just the tip.

I give my mail carrier chocolate every year, usually a big bag of the Lindt balls from Costco. She loves them.

r4, forget the Spode. Bake the carrier some chocolate chip cookies. All these years she's been too polite to let you know that Royal Doulton Hand-Painted Periwinkles are her favorite.

No... but I was a teen in high school and he decided to blackmail me... and I loved every minute of it.

[R22] Forget the Spode is right. She is diabetic, a plate of cookies would kill her. Then she will need the spade not the Spode
