There are also “big bosses” and you are to pick one. They have a group of men that help you get the luggage loaded into your truck and keep the other men back, then you are to tip only the “big boss” and he is to divide the tip fairly. This is so crazy because there is usually a fight between Haitians trying to get your business. It’s awful that they have to argue over something that we see as so minute, yet this may be their only chance to have enough money to feed their families. Please thank God today that you have more then enough food in your pantry and clothes in your closet… and if for some reason you were to lose your job, there are programs in place that won’t let you and your family starve. As much as we complain about our government, we have the strongest most blessed government in the world. Thanks be to God.
