I had been doing it for about a year & Xmas was coming, normally for a paperboy the advent of Yuletide meant a big pay-day as the tips for your year long slog with scant reward would start flowing. This, sadly was not the case, my round covered the most affluent part of Denbigh, nice houses, nice cars, no tips. The other paperboys who did the council estates returned loaded with 50p’s and pound notes, despite there being little money within the households they served. There was plenty of cash flow, perhaps the phrase; ‘the rich get richer while the poor get poorer’ stemmed from the generosity extended to the paperboy at Xmas.
