My stepmom says everyone does.

Life isn't like a box of chocolates . . . it's more like a jar of jalapenos.. What you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow!

Never thought about it before. I've heard of it but never done it. We have the big thing of mailboxes with one central place for outgoing mail. Never thought to leave anything in my box for the mail person. I also know a lot of people who don't. Don't know anyone in real life who does.

 I have never heard of anyone doing that before. I have never thought about it. My mailman in particular is a bit.........strange.

I don't personally know my mail lady to leave her anything.

No, but only because our mailbox is now  community one, so it would get lost.

We used to do it but then we got a new mail carrier and she would always just leave it in the box.

We live in the country and my dad was the mail carrier for 30 years here.  Every year he got tons of things left in the boxes for Christmas and in the summer when it was very hot, he had people that would meet him at their mailbox with cool drinks.  When he retired the whole community threw him a retirement party and he got tons of gifts then as well.
