So I left a bottle of wine and a note for my postman saying season's greetings and thank you for their work during the year.

We live in the country so we have mailboxes in a central location and one of the other neighbours saw this and when I saw them this morning they wondered why I did it and then stated they never got anything for the postman and didn't think it was something that people did.

I said that I am friendly with the post office here since I get stuff all the time through ebay and gear etc and I know they have stayed open later when I have been late getting into town and I wanted to let them know I appreciate it.

I thought it was a nice thing to do. They said I sound crazy to do it.

Heel Hooker - No. But you are cheap. How about some blow next year?

How the heck am I supposed to know where to get coke?

Heel Hooker - They don't have high schools where you live?

Have a happy New Year Dougie, I always get kick out of reading your posts.

No. They bus the kids to a high school in the next town over.

Happy new year!

My parents always left an envelope with cash ($10 or 20) for the mailman, and it's a habit that I picked up and did for years.

But when I moved from my Condo into a house a few years ago we got one of those central community mailboxes, and I stopped the habit.

Nah other people do it. I'm a garbageman, I have some people in my routes that leave wine or whatever else for me too. Your just one of the few thoughtful people left out there. Phone Post

Fine, I will continue to make it habit to be nice to other people before they are nice to me in 2013!

Leaving the mailman a bottle of wine is not crazy.

Leaving the mailman a bottle of wine in the middle of a trap you've set so you can take him home and lock him in your basement and make him play "special delivery" with you is crazy.

We had a great mailman a couple years back who went above and beyond. We bought him a bottle of single malt at Christmas. Exemplary service should be rewarded. Phone Post
