Yesterday, as I was out for a fitness walk, I passed a water delivery man returning from a house to his truck. He was complaining loudly to someone on his cell phone, "Man, if each customer gave me just a dollar, I'd have 40 dollars today!" That got me thinking about people who deliver things to my house. I don't get water delivered, so it never occurred to me that the delivery people would expect (or even hope for) a tip. Certainly I tip for pizza delivery (though we haven't ordered one in ages), but I don't tip the UPS or Fedex delivery people. Often, they just drop packages on the porch, ring the bell, and are gone before I can even get to the door. So I'm curious what other Sparkers think about tipping. Do you tip for water delivery? Flower delivery? Other delivery?
EDIT: Thanks, everyone for great feedback!
