    Default my garbage men

    Eveytime my garbabe men come for pickup they ring the bell. It can be 7 in the a.m. or 8 in the p.m. They ring and ask for a tip each time. I have had it, but fear if I stop tipping they will stop picking up the garbage. Any advice??

    thanks

    Tell them you will tip them every Friday, or the last Friday of every month, why not? ;-)

    And that if they ring your doorbell, you will never tip them.

    You should never have tipped them in the first place. Tell them "Navidad, soilamente" and be done with them. If they do not pick it up, make a stink at the local ayuntamiento or at the company that does the garbage collection, or take it to the neighbor's place
