    I don't tip.
    I live in a country where jobs don't pay horrid wages, and thus tips aren't required for them to be able to function.

    If a restaurant allows tipping, it is a shitty restaurant.
    Then why is there tipping in Canada where they get paid min wage or more.

    I tip based on inconvenience and circumstance. By that I mean if the weather is good and I'm just getting a pizza and maybe another item, $2.00. Same order but raining, $2.50-$3.00 depending how bad. Fucking shit weather $3.50-$5.00.

    Most I ever tipped was $10.00, I ordered pizza for my nerd night of D&D (6 people including me), 3 large pizzas, bread sticks, and two 2 liters (and it was also raining) the bill came to something like ~$40 before the tip.

    I tip 20% on delievery based on the post-tax value. Because 99.9% of pizza companies make drivers pay for their own gas and car maintenance. And if you aren't aware, car maintence IS A LOT. The only thing the compnay covers is wrecks. Not Gas, Not break replacements. 90% of drivers use their own cars (1 place in my area has a company car but it's one of those Domino "pizza-Oven" cars)

    Tip 3-4 dollars, I live in a smallish town, so if you have limited food options, its always to be on the best sides of those options.

    No no you wouldn’t you’ll just eat your pizza with spit in it thinking “ I wonder if I’m tasting it” because you’ll never know and they will never tell you. And if you did see it you have to have evidence and proof your word against theirs. Unless you work in a lab and are going to pay the expense to find out.

    All to what ruin some minimum wage kid you felt guilty about stiffing.

    No you won’t do anything but eat your pizza of shame.

    When all it would taken was a little decency showed the poor kid some love by tipping him out of respect. Then you could enjoy your pizza without that thought or fear.

    But yeah man save your $3.50.

    Not me I tip well. Get a few pies hot fresh and well made. Because I tip and tip well.

    And given that this thread is specifically about delivery drivers, you're not even figuring in the cost of the vehicle, insurance, fuel, repairs. And when their vehicle does break they don't keep getting paid, they literally have to pay what little they may have to fix it so they can keep delivering to your cheap ass.

    Selfish fucks abound in this thread, that can't see beyond "me me me me" to consider other human beings as real people deserving of anything other than a hearty "fuck you, I got mine".
    So do you tip EVERYONE in EVERY profession that you interact with that makes minimum wage? And I assume you also donate ALL of your excess money to those less fortunate?

    Sounds like a case of "fuck you, I got mine". Because what's the difference between guy A making minimum wage and guy B? Societal expectations that one should get tipped and the other shouldn't. That's it. Nothing innate. And certainly nothing universal, because MOST countries don't tip either.

    Say you have the following pizza order:

    Subtotal $16.58
    Delivery Fee $3.45
    Estimated Tax $1.65
    Total $21.68

    Pizza tipping guides say to tip a minimum of $3 for orders under $20, and a minimum of $5 for orders over $20. Do you consider this an order under $20 or over $20? I would tend to give them $25 in cash, which means a $3.32 tip. Note that the pizza place is two miles away, straight down the road with no special circumstances like rain or snow.

    What percentage tip is $3.32 on this order?

    A) 3.32/16.58 = 20%
    B) 3.32/(16.58+1.65) = 18%
    C) 3.32/21.68 = 15%


    Do you think this technically crosses the $20 barrier to a $5 minimum tip?
    In a regular restaurant, do you tip based on the final bill amount or the pre-tax amount?

    Edit: Is $25 in cash for a $21.68 pizza order 2 miles away in nice weather decent?
    15% is decent. I try to tip a bit more, but that’s at least partially because I know how many assholes don’t tip.

    I tip waiters, delivery drivers, even the woman that cuts my hair. If they do a good job i like letting them know i appreciate their effort.
    Businesses don't pay servers and drivers minimum wage because minimum wage laws do not include these professions, by not tipping you are only hurting the person who is taking care of you.
    If the law forced business to pay these people minimum wage you would have much higher base rates for food, drink, or delivery. You would also probably get much worse service from these people. What's the incentive for someone to give exceptional service in a dead end job when they know they get the same amount from minimal effort.
    By the way I would never stiff a pizza delivery guy, they are alone with your food with no witnesses for way to long and they have good memories!

    Oh this is also for servers, so I'll add this blip. I am far more judgy on servers, as I know how piss easy their job is (I've done it) and to be a good server all you have to do is be nice and check in every few minutes with your tables, and bring them things you never prepared (except for salads and soup). My tip starts at $10.00 and goes up or down depending on service. Least I've ever tipped was $0.35 (on a $20 bill) in an upside down cup on the table, most I ever tipped was $35.00 (on $40.00 bill). Stories for both of anyone is interested.

    isn't it often to help pay for the gas since the business does not cover the cost of gas in delivers

    False, in the US if a tipped employee makes less than minimum wage after their tips are factored in the employer is required by law to make up the difference.

    Typically for Pizza, $5 or something. Fuck, even for take out I'm typically slipping them a $5. People at the local Thai place LOVE ME. I just tell them who it is, and BOOM, shits ready in 10-15, just the way I likes it ...
    Restaurants are always 20%, unless something went awry (meal/service) ofc.

    In the case of delivery, yes.

    Worked in that industry unless you really are a trash waiter or delivery I will tip 40% or higher. Depends on the amount ive spent and what I ate.
    Fate is one you forge with you're own two hands.

    Personally, I can't wait for drone delivery so tipping is a thing of the past.

    I tip because I can empathize someone who empathizes with the worker bee of an establishment, the day to day ops wouldn't exist without them they are often impacted for how a customer views a place, but they're played as if they don't do shit. Saw the kitchen fucks up, guess who has to face the angry customer? the waiter and the delivery boy even though they have nothing to do with the fuck ups in the kitchen. The kitchen still gets paid, the waiter basically worked for free if the tip ain't right.

    The whole percentage thing is a guideline but doesn't dictate how I choose to tip. Hypothetically speaking, if I order 1 thing that's $50 by myself I'm not going 20% on it just because those are 'the rules'. I'm paying you something that I think is fair for you brings me the item regardless of how much it cost. If I order 50 $1 cheeseburgers and you have to bring them all to my table then I'll hook you up with the 10-20%. If you're a waiter that has to manage a party of 5,6,xxx, you deserve that gratuity because you put in a lot of work. I don't think a waiter who served one high priced item should make the same as you that night.

    Another example. I always tip my barber. That tip is not based on the price of the haircut, its based how much time, attention, and detail they placed on my head. I'll give a haircut I'm satisfied with $2-3, that's about 15% but its not like I planned it like that. If my dude makes my edge on point, pays extra attention to the grain being right, conditions/oils the hair, hooks up the face even if I didn't ask, etc. I'm giving him a $5, which is like 30-40%.
