Dont threaten me with a good time.
I mean I do tip, but they also charge a sub fee so ima be nice and still give you 5 bucks
@DrSin, the delivery fee pizza companyies charge actually doesn't go to the drivers.... Misleading stuff.... It started when gas went up to $5/gal, which most people on this app are probably too young to remember.. The pizza companies justified the new delivery fees by saying it was compensating gas... But the drivers do not even get it.... I'm pretty sure most of them put it on the boxes as well. Domino's where I'm at charges $2.50 delivery fee, and their boxes state that the money doesn't go to the drivers, to not forget to tip them.... That took entirely too much of my time... So if you're still reading this, thanks....
@Apollo44, and before the price skyrocketed, it was about $1.15 for regular. Also, remember when mid grade and premium increased in 10 cent increments from regular? Pepperidge Farm remembers, and so do I
@Apollo44, where the fvxk do you like that it got up to $5? Northern state? New York?
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, it was over $5 here in Florida, my friend. Like... idk 2-3 years ago
@Leslie Knope 2020, it has literally never been over like $4.10
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, I cant copy comments, but I googled, and you right. Which is weird because I specifically remember seeing it over $5.... maybe it was a diesel sign?
@Leslie Knope 2020, diesel is usually roughly the same price, sometimes cheaper. You were probably seeing like premium
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, I lived in Georgia at the time.. we're talking almost 20 years ago now
@Apollo44, im not sure but when I order online i get a : Delivery fee : a driver fee : and taxes .... so am I getting overcharged ? I always try to tip 5 and over but I never order over $20 worth of pizza I’m a single guy and maybe a friend or two might be here
@Apollo44, it does though. As I used to be a delivery driver for several companies you do get the delivery fee, it is like you said to compensate you for the gas you use to make the deliveries not to be part of your salary.
They put that on the boxes and websites so people won’t be cheap jerks and justify not tipping because of the fee.
@Not A Wolf, that's weird.. Domino's here, I know, does not give the delivery fee to the drivers.. maybe the GM is just crooked lol
@Apollo44, yeah I remember that. It was a out 2 years into the Obama administration. The day he took office gas was 97 cents a gallon in my small town
@tmo0792, I'm talking about turn of the century. It was during the bush administration. Right after he took office and 9/11 happened
@Apollo44, it went up some then but the national average pretty much quadrupled around 2009 https://www.politifact.com/texas/statements/2013/jul/23/roger-williams/says-obama-policies-contributed-raising-gas-prices/
@Apollo44, so a lot of companies have people use their own car. So do they reimburse you for the gas you used?
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, it was above $5 for close to a year in SoCal in like 2013-2014. Now we're lucky that it has plateaued into $3.50/gal since the Hurricanes last year.
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, That may be some blanket cost but if I go down the block right now there's a place charging ~4.60/gallon. They are by no means rare here.
I have Definitely seen and paid for gasoline that was just over $5 at it's peak. I was glad I had a bike/a short drive then.
Now it's back down to a little over $4.00 at most places.
(Not sure how this place down the block is still in business after all these years.)
@Apollo44, I like the new feature where I can tip ahead of time with a credit card. 20-25% tip (depending on the amount the bill was) and not only do I get my food fast but it’s always perfect
@Apollo44, this sounds like a policy problem with the company. I calculate out what a tip should be (not factoring deliverer fee). 15% at the time they say. -1% for every x minutes late and +1% for every x minutes early. (x=1 if they say 15 minutes, 2 or 3 if they say 45). After all that calculation, I deduct the delivery fee. (I have an excel spreadsheet).
Looks like I'm ordering pizza tonight "removes underwear"
My family is always deadset on tipping(my mother used to deliver food from this restaurant called Eli's on Whitney) so we usually try to tip a good amount usually 5 bucks, the way we see it is that if you have enough to choose delivery then you have enough to tip
I used to deliver pizzas when I was 18 and in college. One lady who was technically outside of our delivery area ordered and I took her the pizza she ordered. She paid in exact change and my “tip” was to “go to school and get a real job.” Also, the place I worked for actually didn’t charge a delivery fee.
@wtninja, what a cunt
@wtninja, should've dropped the box.
@wtninja, should have told her, "And here's one for you! Move yo' bjtch into town so you can walk your flabby a$$ over to the restaurant and get your own pie!"
I don’t like feeling obligated to do something that should be optional. When I tip it’s usually for excellent service, and frankly I don’t see someone following a gps to deliver a box of food to me (usually late) as excellent service. If it’s bad weather I almost always tip, but otherwise I tip when I have the means
Sounds kinda gay to me
But this is why I don’t tip pizza boys....
I thought we went through this whole tip thing? The world doesnt owe you anything just like the rest of us 👍
@TheBigJ, Could you at least pay for their gas and wear and tear on their car. You owe them/us at least that.
@mas2de, nope like I said the world doesnt owe you anything my boss could turn around and say hes only gonna pay minimum wage id either grit my teeth or find a new job. Be your own boss if you want things the way you want them.
@TheBigJ, And that kind of "every man for himself" attitude is how society collapses. You are actively damaging someone simply because you can. Grow up, be a better person.
@ archiethesailor, grow up? Ive got my own shìt to pay for its called a tip its not mandatory. Its rare i can afford to get a takeaway im not going to make it rarer because i know im going to have to pay even more for it because a company pays shìt wage
Former delivery driver of two different businesses, Uber, Doordash and Postmates. Please tip. Cash is preferred 😥
I remember how bad tipping is in my neighborhood, a friend said she would rather drive two hours away for better tips than be a waitress here
How would you get the coins out of the $20 bill?
Why cant we just pay people a proper wage?
I don't care about the tip being their income, getting me the pizza fast, making me chuckle with a joke, or being 100% business might get a tip. If your job is to deliver, I shouldn't have to tip because you did your job.
I don't tip the barista for coffee, or the McDonald's employee who doesn't give me a2nd sauce for 10 nuggets.
I just go pick it up so I don’t have to tip anyone.
I'm fine tipping, don't be an entitled cvnt about it tho.
I don’t get tipping. It’s the employers job to pay an employee for their time. I’m buying a product to consume for a set price, check the menu those numbers reflect what you will be required to pay if you want that item, that’s the price I’m paying. Tipping is like saying, “Hey I know your total for you items is $19.20 but I feel like you should pay more for it.” I would rather pay a higher price for food than tip. If having an employee costs a certain amount then make your product price cover their wage cost, that’s what the rest of us have to do.
I like Japan in that regard. No tips needed. ( Its more or less insulting instead)
Don't threaten me with a good time
Don’t threaten me with a good time
Is that a promise?
I have gotten alot of shjt in my life for being a "high roller" but my view is that money is worthless when I'm dead so why not spend it now.
Anyway the point I'm trying to make is that a $5 tip from me is a bad tip. Usually you get atleast a 50% tip and if you are delivering and I got friends over you bet you gon be eating nice tonight
