This thread is somewhat related to this discussion:
Scamp charges good money for the deliveries, so I think the driver is not starving, but I would be nice to him, anyway, and ask him for a rundown on the camper. He should be prepared for that.

I live to tip....wait staff. Pizza delivery, you bet? But tipping the delivery of your Scamp? Wouldn't cross my mind.

Tipping is another way to say "Thank you" and obviously there are those who do not share that social grace.
Never in doubt, often wrong

I'm one who thinks tipping has gotten out of hand. I'm amazed at all of the places I see a tip jar these days.

I made a pot of coffee. Had it ready with some biscuits when they arrrived. Also let them use my phone for a long distance call.
We sat and had a nice conversation about their trip. They had dropped a 13 off in LA area, one in San Jose area and after mine they were off to deliver one in Yosemite.

I sent them away with a full thermos of coffee and my heart felt thanks.

Back in the early 60's I had a small paper route--only about 20 deliveries. Each month I had to knock on doors to collect the fee. Not many people tipped, but Mr. Taylor always gave me a dime. Now a dime wasn't much, even back in the early 60's. But who's name do I remember over 50 years later? It wasn't about the money. It was about thoughtfulness and making a young kid feel appreciated.
It's not the size.....
