  • No, because we have about 12 different ones a year, and at Christmas it's the least likely time we'll see our regular guy.

  • No, I don't see ours we have a box at the end of the driveway.

  • I give my main carrier a gift, simply because I work from home and she has to get out of the truck a lot to pick up packages that I send out. I like to keep her on my good side! :)

  • We don't for the same reason as the post above.

    And don't give them cash if you do give a gift to a postal worker....they legally cannot accept it. Cookies, Cakes, books, DVDs.....valued under $20 is okay. No Amer Ex. Gift Cheques, No Personal checks, no gifts valued over $20, and absolutely no alcohol.

  • Well, Curtis is not just the postal worker who has the route my home is on. He is our yes, we do. When we lived other places we made goodies like fudge or something and left them in a tin for the mail carrier.

  • I used to when we had a regular mail carrier, but he transferred a few years back and we've had a different carrier every other day since it seems.
