Who’s the most popular celebrity who patronizes the Hollywood Post Office on Wilcox? According to a long time postman there, Ben Affleck is by far the best liked celebrity customer. Ben was described as “The sweetest man you’d ever want to meet!” Our postal worker went on to say that sometimes Ben comes in at the end of the day to pick up all his packages and mail and he’s one of the few people who tip – and he’s VERY generous. “Everybody wants to help him.”

    Ben has never forgotton what it was like to be struggling in his early Hollywood years and knows how hard the service industry people work and frequently tips large. When he goes to Las Vegas he is known for thounsand dollar tips if he is winning and even tips hundreds of dollars if he loses! The guy is class all the way and he will enjoy a very long lucrative career in Hollywood because he is finally playing the game and showing you CAN be nice and still come out ahead!

    I thought it was illegal for federal postal workers to accept cash tips. Hope nobody in a position of power reads this.

    ^^You’re right, they’re not suppose to. They like BA being above and beyond but the postals worker are not. BA should just give them presents during the Christmas season.

    it has got to be the best way to keep the pap smears (paparazzi) from taking photos of you walking out to the mailbox in your robe.

    Is he in a movie right now? Why isn’t he with his wife?

    I know we all have faults and bad habits….However, Ben has always had a wandering eye, gambled extremely excessively, patronized strippers and lap dancers. Do old habits die hard? Even the Mafioso were nice at times…has Ben really lost his taste for all the above? Just asking.

    Ben is not a friendly guy as a rule. And it IS illegal to tip postal workers. If this is true, you just screwed over the employees at this postal station and they’re going to be fired and fined.

    Nobody is going to get fired. They’ll probably donate that money to food drives and what not.
    Course, why is that guy tipping postal workers who typically are making $22 a hour.

    12:05: have you ever BEEN to the post office on Wilcox? I guarantee you, none of those dimwits behind the bullet proof glass is going to donate the money to anyone other than their crack dealer.

    I would LOVE to be of service to Ben in some way, I most certainly would get his package and I’m sure he would leave me a large tip too.

    Well you’ve ruined it for the postal workers. They have to declare and pay tax on any money they make.. and it is illegal for them to accept tips. Of course you might be hinting Ben is recieving things thru them illegally? Sheese

    Why on Earth would you tip a postal worker for doing the job they agreed to do for the salary they agreed to do it for? You Americans are very sick people. It’s not all about the dollar, and the tipping culture which you’ve created is disgusting and vile.

    I agree with 2:33pm and I AM American!

    I agree with 2:33 p.m., too. I’m sick of being hit up for cash from people who are getting paid to do a job, like the “tip” jar on every retail counter. It’s a form of blackmail against celebrities, too — overtip and you’re praised as a good celebrity; untertip and you’re scum.

    It has been a long time custom that you gave a tip to the postal workers, milkman, and any service worker that regularly gives you service during the year. You would give this tip during the Holiday season over many years here in the USA.

    To 3:48 p.m. – The tips cannot be cash. They can be cookies, clothing and the like. Cash is illegal, however, just because it is illegal does not mean people don’t do it.

    My postman delivers to my mailbox at the sidewalk and don’t always have the same person. Am I supposed to watch for him to come around the holiday time and give him a box of cookies? I hardly ever am home when mail is delivered. Hey, this is supposed to be about the great and powerful Ben, a real ladies man, as Jennifer Lopez finally learned. He as you remember hooked up with strippers, porn stars, etc. To his present Jennifer: Keep an eye on him, babe. He is not an easy one to tame.

    The onus of tipping and bonuses has been displaced by the corporate world onto the shoulders of the consumers, yet you sheep continue to support that system. Why? Look at the rest of the world where restaurant and cafe owners etc actually pay a living wage. WTF is wrong with you people?
    Wake up already. The joke is on you.

    I’m always reminded of the classic opening scene in Reservior Dogs; while in a diner, Mister Pink (Steve Buscemi) proudly pontificates on the absurdity of tipping.
    Here here!
    Indeed 8:35 p.m., proletariats make the rich, rich; share your wealth!

    Hey I know! Let’s start tipping at fast food places too! I mean, they’re food service workers who can use an extra hand. The majority of them make less than Starbucks employees, who we tip. Oh, and what about cashiers at Ralphs and Trader Joe’s? They probably need some of your extra cash too.

    This bad boy seems to have calmed down since he got serious about his former pornstar girlfriend and he has his friends wondering WHY. What’s so special about HER? We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy. It’s a family affair – the girlfriend watches while the bad boy fiddles around with the guys!
