    Do any of you drivers ever tip your loaders for x-mas?

    I try to give tips on proper loading but they seem to go in one ear and out the other.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    I'm a cover driver so no but I haven't seen a load worthy of a tip in years.

    Sounds like a sure fire way to create animosity among the drones, that won't do.

    Yes. I tip a days pay (my loaders pay, not mine lol) and I send home something for my loader's kids.

    Seems it is more old timers that tip the loaders if it is an everyday loader.

    My first peak as a loader my drivers had 24, 15, and maybe 5 years respectively. Each one stuffed an envelope for me.

    If you have the same loader everyday and they do a good job I don't see how you can't tip.

    Usually it's $50 for loader, and $50 for the helper.

    This year it's $100 for the helper since he is taking a beating due to the mess the loader leaves me with.

    It's not easy but a little effort goes a long way. :)

    And don't forget to throw something into the Salvation army kettle and make a food donation to the food bank.

    My loader sucks. He gets nada. If I had a good one I would have no problems giving $50-100.
