Between houses, keep the flap down on your sack to stop the papers getting damp. Close gates behind you if they were closed as you arrived. At least smile and nod at your customers, say "morning" if you can. Give a friendly wave if they see you through the window. If you have elderly customers, keep a watch on them - if you can see their mat through a glass door, and it has the same post lying on it from one day to the next, knock on the door to check they're OK. If you get no answer, ask your newsagent to give them a ring. If you are sure they are in, but get no answer, ask your local police to check on them. In the run-up to Christmas, include a slip of paper in with each delivery that says "Merry Christmas from Nutrition Man". If you are going on holiday, add a similar slip that says so, and say when you will be back to continue the service they have been getting. All of this list will make your job harder, but it will also mean you get a much better reference from your employer when you move on to a different job, and increases the chance of tips, especially at Christmas.
