We pay for our own gas, shit is expensive. What a cheapass, I hope they spit on your food.



& at least the garbage or mail lady/man make above min wage.

I'd prob make it an even 40. So 7.50 I guess.

I tip 20 percent.
Our drivers make 4 something an hour and get none of the delivery fee.
They pay their own gas and maintenance fees.

My SO was a pizza delivery driver at three seperate locations, and made below minimum wage. But, he was paid $1.75 for gas for deliveries within their zone, and an extra 10% of the total cost of the order for deliveries out of their zone. Were I live, the city is pretty small and everything is center around four main roads. He would have to put $5 in gas at most to make all his deliveries. I always tip 20% though, because I used to be a waitress.

Quoting ✽Sara✽:" I may get some grief over this, but I don't tip the pizza delivery guy. Ever. I figure he gets paid to walk the pizza to my door, plus I have to pay extra for it to get delivered. :/"


This. With the delivery fee they charge, unless it's shitty weather I don't usually tip. When someone relies on tips and makes less than minimum wage the employer must make up the difference. So yes, they rely on tips, but it's not as if they are getting paid only 3 bucks an hour. To charge a 3 dollar delivery fee to pay for gas and upkeep on the car (thats what most plaves say the delivery fee is far) is a lot when you don't even use 3 dollars in gas to get to the persons house from the store.



I will tip when the weather is crappy or its a bigger order or a delivery fee is not enforced (I dont know of any places that dont charge for a delivery fee though). But normally, I don't tip for food delivery. I really am peturbed at the whole delivery fee being charged in the first place and made me not give a damn to tip anymore!



The chinese food place near us always delivers our food piping hot, gives us extra sauce and extra appetizers for free depending on what we order. It's like a free appetizer for every 10 bucks in food you order or something like that. We tip them well because they make the effort to be fast and they do good service. But the pizza places are only making a pizza and take more than double the time and enforce that stupid delivery charge. Its almost like a forced gratuity, I don't like being forced to tip a certain amount, or have other forced expenses. Tips should be earned, not forced, especially a certain amount. Tips should be based on how the service was. Most other countries don't treat tipping the way America does to be honest.

obviously things are different here but when I worked for Dominos I got to drive a company car (as did most of the drivers)

There are just so many things wrong with this post, it makes my head spin. First, delivery charges go to the establishment, it has nothing to do with the delivery driver. Not tipping because you dont like the charge is ridiculous.



The reason why other countries dont tip is because service staff are paid a liveable wage. You hate the delivery fee now? It would go up probably about 200-300% if they paid the drivers for what tips normally cover.



If you dont want to tip, then you should have the balls to state that when you order. When you are waiting forever and get a crappy cold pizza, maybe you'll see what their service is worth.

Soo the restaurant is busy, and your pizza is one of 20... That delivery driver could have gotten it to you fast, but the kitchen was slow. So he doesn't get tipped?



I think it's rude. Honestly, you tip for services... you could have gotten in your own damn car and picked up the pizza. We pay for convenience and we pay for service, that's how the world works.

Ive never heard any pizza plave saying the delivery charge goes to the drivers. I know dominoes specifically says on their website and commercials that the fee does not go to the driver. I don't understand why someone would not give a tip for someone willing to drive them their food. Even if the company makes up the difference up to minimum wage that does not offset the cost of tires oil changes gas and other general maintenance of delivery driving.

I'd give them a $40 and say keep it.
My husband would not be as generous and would probably give $5.

The delivery fee attached to that is not even given to the driver though :? It's the damn business.



Jeez, why are people so cheap?
