The Holiday season is ALL about giving, spending time with ones you love most, and being thankful for the life that we are living! I personally believe that you should give back to and help as many people as you possibly can because you never know what someone is going through and always remember that there is someone out there that is less fortunate than you. A really questionable topic that is often talked about is, whether or not we should be tipping the people that do everyday services for us, such as our landlords or mail men, trash people, etc.! Today I am going to be talking all about this topic and what I think about the matter!
Some people say that we shouldn’t have to tip our service people for things that they would normally have to do for us anyway. I mean after all, that is their job, and they are getting paid to do it. It’s not as if they are a waiter at a restaurant where they are making less of an hourly wage and rely on their tips, this is a completely valid argument!
I definitely disagree with this thinking! I think we absolutely should tip these people in our lives during the holiday season. These folks have to go through a whole lot of things for us! For example, your trash people and mail delivery person have to work throughout the winter season even through the freezing cold and snow and inclement weather, or your landlord has to come around when necessary to fix things and take care of problems for you! I order a ton of packages and things online, so the mailman is constantly busy at my home, and having quite a few people in our family creates a lot of trash for the trash man as well! I’m not suggesting that you tip them some crazy amount, but sliding them a little extra love for the holiday season, it will be much appreciated!
After all, the holidays are all about giving back and being friendly with the world! I personally believe that tipping your servicemen will give you the great feeling of giving; it will help you to create a relationship with these service people, and they may just even give you a bit of a better service treatment when you need them next! So if you’ve never tipped these people in the past, try giving a little something special this year for the holidays!
