Hey All,

Just wondering, I have a really nice postman and order online everyday and so he's lugging parcels round the streets everyday for me.... if it's recorded and I'm not in he'll sign for it for me and hide it round the back so I don't have to go to the PO to pick it up, really helpful guy.

I was thinkng of giving him a card with £20 in or something to say thank you but wondered if this is still done these days?

:-)

my postie is excellent! he signs for stuff and leaves it too-we live in a fairly remote area so its perfectly safe. we give him 20 quid at christmas.
#6
I always give a £5

We have a brilliant postman and usually get him a box of chocolates or something, before him we didnt get our postman anything though, just that the one we have now is brilliant (and in the run up to christmas he usually has a bag just with our stuff in!)

I'm gonna give my postie something this year as i keep buying bits off here and he has to knock on my door at least twice a week for the past month :oops: . I thinking a tenner :?

I will be this year as I have had the two best postmen ever, as I work shifts they leave my stuff at my mates shop, just trying to think what to get them

I hate giving people money. My window cleaners get a tray of lager each, but the postie walks across my lawn slowly digging up a trench in the turf every morning, so he gets nothing.

I think it sums it up, if your postie is crap he gets nothing, if he's great then give him a tip ! :thumbsup:

Don't give nothing to postie because they keep changing every couple of weeks. Give a box of chocolates to the milkman though...
#15
Nope nothing - mine is useless
#16
A tenner in a card to the " Royal Male " every year.

I have the best Postie in the country, he is brilliant.:thumbsup:
banned#17
I have always given at least a fiver but wont be giving anything this year due to them striking.
#18
take him to see your bedroom

The regular one i had was a right miserable so and so,he's on the sick at the moment,my sis said to the replacement postie,hope he doesn't come back,he said so do i, i'm after his round !! lol

Hell would freeze over before I'd give mine a tip.

For 15 years we've suffered our mail being delivered to a different road (which looks and sounds nothing like mine) - and vice versa with receiving their mail. My neighbours all say they have the same problems.

Maybe reading lessons would be the way to go.

I'm truely jealous. I'd do the same in your position.

When we had a regular postman I used to give him £20, I was getting parcels delivered every day, and if I wasn't in he would either drop them at my mam's or bring them on his way home!
Now we seem to have a different one every day so they get nothing (plus they are useless)
#22
think my postman's had enough out of me this year, a birthday card with a tenner in, NOT HIS! a book, a couple of dvd's and some parcels. , really, REALLY pee'd of with RM this year so nope, i'll give it the bin men.
#23
im a postman and last year i received mostly booze:thumbsup:, a couple of cans and a bottle of whisky from the old folks, from the crackheads i receive a "got my giro guv" and if i haven its ffs do u know where it is? lol some clever people about.

Don't bother, they will probably steal a tip from you anyway with "missing" post !!

yep were all thieves, today i stole 3 amazon parcels, 2 play orders containing forza and mw2 and a pair of wool dungarees!, anyone want to buy the dungarees they didnt fit. 25 starting yeh?:santa:
#26
I never tip anyone, everyone gets paid at least minimum wage, why should i give them more?
#27
My parents always have given to the postie....but I dont see why no other 'workperson' that visits the house regularly gets a tip.....binmen, couriers, gasmen, roadsweeper......:? they get paid a wage for the job they do, simple as that IMO, bet not many people give couriers tips just cos they happen to deliver something to them near xmas :?

This postman was delivering mail in Dublin when a woman appeared at the door in her nightdress. ' Come upstairs 'she said 'and make love to me. ' After he had obliged the woman said ' here's a can of Lager and two pound coins for you ' The postie took them and said ' what's all this for ?'
The woman said " you can thank my husband for this , I suggested giving you 20 pounds for your Christmas tip but my husband said "fukc him , give him a can of beer and 2 quid !"


on a serious note we always give him £20.
bin men we leave them 8 cans of stella.
and paperboy £10.

It was Christmas Eve and the Postman was met at the door by a strikingly beautiful woman in revealing negligee. She took him by the hand, gently led him through the door (which she closed behind him), and led him up the stairs to the bedroom where she blew his mind with the most passionate love he had ever experienced.

When he had had enough, they went downstairs, where she fixed him a giant breakfast: eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, and freshly squeezed orange juice.

When he was truly satisfied, she poured him a cup of steaming coffee. As she was pouring, he noticed a fiver sticking out from under the cup's bottom edge.

"All this was just too wonderful for words," he said, "but what's the fiver for?"

"Well," she said, "last night, I told my husband that i wanted to leave the postman a christmas tip, and that we should do something special for you. I asked him what to give you.

He said, 'Screw him, give him a fiver.'"

The lady smiled and said, "The breakfast was my idea."
