Re: When is a $10.00 tip not enough?

Mar 8, 2013

Depending on how fast they got there with the pizzas, I probably would have tipped around 80 to 100 dollars. I used to work at a job where tips were a majority of my income and got stiffed many times over. Having said that, I tip based on service. If a waitress or waiter is rude or forgets things like refilling the water, getting another beer, or getting more bread, then yeah I tip them a lot less and it's their fault not mine. I do tip more than the norm for good service too. Bottom line imo is: you want tips, work for it.

 

BUT a ten dollar tip on a 1400 bill is pathetic, no matter how you slice it.

As a former Zza Delivery guy, I would have liked to get at least $30 for the delivery.  Not that it should be based on the receipt value, but rather on the size of the order.

 

If I got 85 Boxes of Pizza to s destination in the time frame they wanted, and the boxes were all in pristine condition, I think I would appreciate more than $10.00 for my efforts.

 

This being said, Delivery is its own animal.  I never went to a place expecting the tip to reflect any percentage of the bill.  I usually expected at least $1-$2, on normal orders.  For the larger orders (10 Piazzas+), I would usually hope for, but still not expect, between $5 & $10.

 

I always tip 20% on Dine in service.  I do not, however, include the Well Drinks in the total when figuring the tip.  No one actually should.  If you want to tip the bartender, then go in and give them their own.  Most, waiters/waitresses do not share their tips with the bartender.  I did say most, not all.

 

So in essence, if you order a $15.00 meal, and $25 worth of drinks, you should only tip on the $15.  The waitress did nothing more than stop by the bar for the drinks.  The food is another story.

 

So in review, for the large Pizza order, they should have tipped at least $20 if not $30.  $10 is a bit of a slap.  At least in my opinion.

This is basically my tip stratedgy. I go by what they are doing and how much of their time I am taking. I know they get paid way less per hour then they should all due to tips. I do not go by the check amount. If I buy a quick lunch, I'm supposed to give them $1.50? Seems far to low for 15 minutes woth of work. On the same token if this receipt was a dine in restaurant and they only spent 30 minutes at the table, $150 dollar tip is far too much.

 

Seeing this was delivery, I agree 85 pizzas in a car is some difficult work to make sure they get it there hot and in one piece. I know they are just doing their job, but I think they should have gotten $50.

 

Do we know if the driver was given cash too? Or only what e see on the receipt?

The order below was for 85 pizzas, the total bill came to $1,453.93, the customer tipped $10.00, that's around .0069% of the total bill!

 

I discussed this with my wife before coming here to ask you guys what you all thought, & although we always tip somewhere between 10% & 15% we decided that for something like this we would probably have given the driver somewhere around $100.00.

 

Maybe the manager of the pizza place should have agreed a delivery charge/tip before accepting the order?

 

So everyone, my question to you all is what would you have given the driver?

and THAT is why most places automaticaly charge a 10%-15% tip when a bill is over a certain amount.

That's a standard practice when telephone orders are taken for credit card transactions JERM, it just means the customer accepts to pay the charges & waives their signature.

I can never come to an agreement about tipping because I always find myself both agreeing and disagreeing with Mr. Pink. Why don't the workers at McDonalds get tipped seeing how they prepare your food? If the service was not great by any means, why am I obligated to tip?

 

Don't get me wrong, I always tip out of courtesy. And I think pizza delivery drivers should be tipped because of gas prices and the fact they're driving to your house. But isn't $10 sufficient? On any other order, that would be an above average tip (usually hovers around $2-5). Granted, the delivery person is cramming 85 pizzas into his car, but he's still performing the basic service and driving to one destination. If anything, the workers responsible for making the pizzas should be tipped, because it's not easy to make 85 pizzas at once. 

 

I'm just not really into the whole percentages thing. Why should I tip a waitress more for bringing me a high-priced steak rather than a substantially lesser-priced slab of bologna? I'm tipping for a service; not paying a tax.
