I tipped $8.50 on a $42.00 pizza order tonight and the delivery driver not only DID NOT acknowledge the tip with a thank you [which would've been nice] he actually saw the tip line and gave me a dirty look. Think eye roll with a sneer.
I already paid in the $2.00 delivery charge and then tipped - can someone PLEASE explain to me why a 20% tip on delivery displeased this man?
I was trying to treat my family to a fun, out of the ordinary dinner since they have worked so hard taking care of me and feeding me. The driver's attitude completely ruined dinner for me. And please don't tell me it shouldn't have - YES it should - I did above and beyond - it is delivery for heaven's sakes - not a sit down, in a restaurant experience.
I am tired of people bitch'en on the net about not getting tipped - check your attitude and your high expectations of what you are actually worth and get back to me.
And this isn't an anomaly - read the net, talk to your neighbors and experience it yourself - they all think because they "are putting themselves through school" or "it causes wear and tear on my car" or "I only make minimum plus tips" they are entitled to MORE than 20%.
This is the last time I order out. I just really wanted to give the gang the night off. Y'know?
