OR: You sound young so I will give you the benefit of the doubt. Yes, doormen and most service people in a residential luxury building count on annual tips as a significant portion of their salary. You should give what you can afford, but $100 is really not "too much". This is a tip for an entire year's worth of work and if this is a FT doorman who goes out of their way to help us on a "daily" basis, we try to recognize that effort. In our situation, that will be $100/doorman. [ Reply | More ]

Keep your apartment habits. Get rid of everything you are not using, wearing, etc. do not let clutter creep up on you and be mindful of everything you purchase. [ Reply | More ]

OP: thanks. I'm just concerned they will get really hungry so I need a bunch of snacks that won't take up much space. I'm really maxed out on space [ Reply | More ]

Whatever they like. Bring some treats - dried fruit, m&ms, Pez (stuff that takes a while to eat). Bring empty sports bottles you can fill once you are through security so they don't knock over a cup and sit in wet clthes all day. Pack extra- better to throw out than run out. Bring hand wipes and sanitizer. [ Reply | More ]

I go to whole foods and look for interesting finger foods that they aren't overly familiar with. Junkier than the stuff we typically buy, but not horrendous in the grand scheme. (Things like those fruit "shredz" or the sunflower seed/jam sandwich bites or fruit leather or yogurt melts) [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I wasnt here in the 1980s, but why would you ever pay a squeegee man? He's on the outside of the car, you're on the inside, presumably the windows are rolled up and the doors are locked? 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

+1. Always had to make sure windows rolled up and doors locked. And this was before it was all automated. If they saw you locking doors and rolling up windows they would start banging on your car like crazy. [ Reply | More ]

They also used to hover over your windshield until you paid them. If they were still standing there when the light changed, there was no way of driving off with out hitting them. [ Reply | More ]

If you told them to fuck off, all their squeegee buddies would fuck up your windshield. If you ignored and stared straight ahead, you'd get the guy splayed out on your hood with his squeegee begging for a tip. If you paid, you fueled the problem. There was no way to win. [ Reply | More ]

Pp: hope this doesn't hijack this post but I didn't even realize what a PITA suede was until I got the pants. My dry leaner won't clean them, had to bring to Madame Paulette and it cost a fortune to clean. [ Reply | More ]
