Is good newspaper delivery service worth an extra $300 a year?
The next day, he told me, the deliveryman shook his hand and handed him the paper and, since then, it's delivered by 7 AM sharp every morning, "practically gift-wrapped" on the front porch.
Bribing the delivery guy to do his job might seem distasteful but, on the other hand, $1 a day is hardly too much to pay for the peace of mind of an on-time newspaper, if you can afford it.
What do you think of the big tip as a strategy for procuring solid service? Have you had a similar experience?
