We all tip our waiters, our cab drivers, and our hairstylists, and for good reason: they bring us food, take us places, and keep our feathers shiny and manageable. But for some reason, we usually leave out all sorts of people from the tipping process.
Today we’re going to right that wrong, by extending tipping to those those people who work just as hard, but for reasons unknown to us, aren’t “supposed” to get tips. Here are just a few left-out occupations you might consider tipping this holiday season:
-The garbage man
-The bag boy at the supermarket
-The FedEx guy
-The night janitor at your office
As you can see, the list is practically endless. So be bold and tip your local beekeeper, lion tamer, or professional wrestler; they will love you forever! And if you have a good story when you’re done, share it with us!
A friendly tip (ha, double meaning!) before you try this: we’ve done this ourselves recently, and to be honest, it can be bit awkward with some of the above people, depending on the situation. So you might want to try placing your tip in a Christmas card and enclosing it in an envelope that they can open later.
