It was also customary in Canada when I was growing up. We knew the mailman by name, he had gone to school and was in the army with my dad. He was wounded at Dunkirk (missing fingers on left hand) and post man was about all he could do.

Same for the malkman, we got our milk in bottles delivered to a small portal at the back door. He would pick up the bottles and bring fresh milk for breakfast.

It wasn't always a cash gift. I remember helping my Grandmother wrap a bottle of whiskey for Dan the mailman one year lol.

However those days are gone, mail is in community mail boxes, no milk delivery available at all and the garbage is picked up by automatic collectors the garbage men seldom get out of the truck any more.
