    Tipping isn't a thing here like it is in England.

    Our postboxes are out by the front gate, if there's anything that has to be delivered that is too big, or requires a signature, we get a card telling us to collect from the Post Office, so we have no contact with the postman.

    Our garbage is collected from the road outside by a truck, we all use wheelie bins. So we have no contact with the garbo either. When I worked as a garbo in England there were seven of us to a truck, we had to take the bin bags out of the bins, stack them out front, and load them by hand onto the truck.

    As we don't have milkmen or bakers delivering to the house, we don't have anyone to tip there either.

    Australians aren't big tippers anyway. My son delivers pizzas after college and almost never gets a tip, even if it's just a few cents change.

    We gave the Binmen some lager. The Postman got a bottle of wine. Paperboys got double their usual tip.

    That is all.

    Nice one Gripper.
    when I was a postie I got on average 300 squids, damn hard work at crimbo time being a postie, I had some great customers that always invited me in for a hot drink and if I was lucky I got a biscuit as well
    My round was split into two, one half the town run the rest was residential and I got more tips from the residential area than the shops.
    it's nice to be appreciated and the Money was well Handy

    Mine is not much better mate, damn twat was shoving my mail in without opening the flap first, so all my post had a good concertina effect, my radio ham mags that are not cheap all fecked up, so i had to put a big post box at the back of my house and sealed up the damn letterbox so he could not do it anymore.
    The Garbo person is ok, not had a prob at all.
    some people just cant do the damn job right.

    That's a typical example mate, it was on the tv the other day about stuff being damaged and going missing,
    I think the modern day postperson/s are a Lot of "tea leaves"
    or is that tea bags
