Christmas Tips

I wondered how much/what the procedure should be for tipping the papery delivery person?

I have had two cards posted - wishing me/us a Merry Christmas - one from the Paper Boy, one from the Sunday Paper Boy.

(they both look like they have been written by the same person - not a young person's writing - perhaps the paper shop owner ?)

I think last year I popped £5 in a card and dropped it into the paper shop.

Should I be sure to be up and pounce when they approach the door and hand it over in person ?

To add - many, many years ago when I had a paper round I knocked on the door, said Merry Christmas and handed customer their paper. (That was an evening round though, not the morning).

We don't have a paper boy but maybe a fiver or something? The bin men get a bottle of wine each.

Our paper boy is an oap, so we get him a bottle of whisky as he's been delivering to us for years and years. Probably no good for school aged kids fgrin
