Tip the Fed Ex guy?

Our Visa documents were shipped to the wrong address. Fed Ex guy figured out who and where we were even before I saw the email Fed Ex sent saying there was a problem. DW was very grateful, and asked me if she should've tipped the Fed Ex guy.

Do they even accept tips, and if they can, would you?

On this one-time basis, for going beyond the call? Yes, why not? You're just showing your appreciation.

There's no sign on the trucks saying "Tips not accepted" or "please don't tip."

I would. However, I rarely see FedEx or USPS peeps as they usually come and go so fast. I’ve heard my doorbell ring, gotten up and found a package on my doorstep, and the truck is already pulling away.

FedEx has never rung my doorbell. And after the way they delivered a tv set(see Amazon thread) the thought of a tip would never cross my mind.
