One pizza guy from Portland delivered pizza to a couple, their total was $22.67. They handed him 23 dollars and told him to keep the change. He didn't say anything rude. The next day they came in and dropped this off.

I worked for a couple of years doing pizza deliveries, and although the tips are definitely a nice bonus, I would never expect people to have to give a tip. After all isn't that what tipping should be, an optional extra if the customer is feeling happy with the service, and has the money available to tip.

To be honest, on occasion I did receive an exceptionally large tip. Like the change out of a 50 for a 20euro pizza. Of course, I didn't refuse, though in my head I thought, what logic lies in giving a tip of that amount. So I'd smile, show my gratitude and head off while thinking in my head 'their loss!'.

morrel2, if you thought it was excessive, why did you take it?

^2: In the US, the drivers get paid minimum wage, so tips are a significant part of their income. It's assumed you'll tip at least 10% unless the delivery is very late or the pizza's wrecked or something. Generally I tip 15% or so.

@styopa. Well in that case it's the wage system that's a failure. If tips are expected to cover their wages, why do companies lie and claim their product is a certain price, instead of making the prices high enough to cover their employees wages in the first place.

Also, a little note, 95% of the time, if the delivery is very late, it's not the driver's fault. Usually it's because the restaurant is too busy, or they can't/or don't employ enough drivers etc. So in this case why should the drivers be the ones to lose out because of late delivery?

And @ coydog : I was there to earn a living. If people wanted to tip excessively, so be it, and like I said - their loss :03:

paying a tip for delivery is the price paid for being lazy
