It's the holiday season, so I wanted to give a little love to the folks who make our days easier -- namely, the trash collectors in our neighborhood.
Not knowing when they come, I didn't know the exact mechanics of tipping them during the holiday season.
So, I put some cash in a bright-colored, yellow-highlighted envelope (labeled "DO NOT THROW ENVELOPE AWAY / TO: TRASH COLLECTORS") and taped to the top of the can. In the card I wrote, "Thank you for keeping our neighborhood beautiful. We appreciate all you do. -- J and TJ McGuinness"
Corny or practical. I guess I'll let them be the judge.
I'm just hoping they don't chuck the envelope.
