My family and I moved to Connecticut for a better life and we don't regret it, but one thing that we have noticed is how cheap people are during the holidays. My husband has worked in the maintenance field for a very long time and only here in Connecticut have we found people that don't tip their maintenance personnel as a gratitude for all they do throughout the year.

At times, my husband must get up at two or three in the morning to take care of emergencies. Really, come on be a bit more thankful to your maintenance crew.
