    Got it. You don't give them the tip; you give them the whole thing.

    When's the last time any of us were given a tip for hauling anything? Let alone showing up late, running over a hedge, knocking a light pole over and asking for a tip?
    If we cared as little about our job as a lumper we'd be un insurable.

    Tips are reserved for underpaid people that provide us with a service.

    But lumpers are not providing us a service; they are hiring out for a service from the consignee that is too cheap to hire their own staff to unload their own freight.

    Any tips the lumpers should expect should only be coming from the consignee.

    If they ask, I always give them a tip. “ Don’t Park your car in downtown Detroit after dark”. That’s my tip.

    Hmmm, never even thought about tipping lumpers. I'm a generous tipper, always leave tip at hotel for cleaning lady, leave tip in shower for shower attendant, etc.

    But, lumpers, uh, no.
