    Tipping doesn't do shit for employee wages, as evidenced by the examples presented in this thread. Someone should do something about tipping, but sure as hell isn't the customers. The owners are the ones who are being cheap assholes by relying on emotional manipulation to pry more money out from their customers, instead of doing the straightforward thing and banning tips while raising prices.

    The great lie here is that the customers are the ones being called assholes by the owners, while the owners are the ones being cheap assholes.

    Where I'm from, the wages are increased so there is no need to tip. Tipping really is not part of the culture here.

    If I did live in a tipping culture, I'd probably give a flat rated $5 for every order, unless they really impressed me with their delivery/manner, then maybe $10+.

    Neither. I don't tip the driver at all.

    He have one job: Deliver pizza in the company car. He's on an hourly/monthly salary and I have already paid a delivery fee.

    Also, since my food is already paid in full, when I ordered, the driver is almost back inside his car before I have gotten it.. Even if I would, I couldn't tip him..... And I don't use cash at all.. Not for 28 years..

    Can't really speak for the weird half-mandatory tipping the US practices. Here in Germany the general rule of thumb is: if you decide to tip (and it's never required) you go for about 10% of the cost of your food. But usually you just let them keep whatever amount it is to the closest amount that can be paid with bills only.

    If your receipt says 18.49 you hand them a 20 and say "stimmt so" which roughly translates to "that's fine" If it's 19.50 you do the same. If it's 16.99 you might still do the same or say "make it 18" and get back a two. Not going for the exact amount owed or not tipping to a full Euro are kind of considered bad form. Tipping is not just for showing appreciation but also to make getting your change more convenient for the staff. It evens out over time anyways and it works about the same for restaurants and delivery drivers.

    A lot of it is up to your discretion. But restaurant staff and drivers are fully paid, so it really is just a bonus for them.

    Thanks Lord I live in a country where tips are not obligatory. Of course they do include it in price anyway but ultimately it's employer's job to reward employee, not mine

    These threads are just funny for showing how fucked up it is in the US. I mean people claiming tips cover gas for drivers? Since fucking when do the companies not pay for gas? Smells like bullshit too me. Also why the fuck do people tip the drivers? They literally have the easiest fucking job, you know they don't share with the people that took your order and made your food right?

    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?
    I don't tip, shouldn't tip unless over the top extra service. The delivery we use, the waiters we meet, are all faily paid already.

    I've never seen a delivery driver in a company car. Most get paid a waiters wage, which is below min wage, and they don't get the delivery fee.

    Just because you haven't seen it, doesn't mean it doesn't happen..

    Besides, in my country, if you use your personal vehicle for work use, your employer is required by law, to pay you (if memory serves me right) DKK3,79 (roughly 0,5 Euro) per kilometer driven, to cover petrol, wear and tear and depreciation of the vehicle. Those DKK3,79 is actually tax free.

    EDIT: DKK3,56 but it doesn't change anything --> https://skat.dk/skat.aspx?oid=2234870 (in Danish)

    Not what you think you know it’s what you can prove. And generally screwing over people working hard who needs tips is a shitty thing to do.

    That's pretty much what the delivery costs... Why would I pay it twice?

    Pizza costs 4 usd in my country, delivery is free, because the restaurant is nearby. If they cant deliver it in 30 mins i dont tip.
    The only person i tip is the hairdresser, because her income is low.

    Tipping is not really a thing in here. Never heard anyone who does, for anything. The workers are compensated with proper wages instead.

    It depends on the situation and where I am. I do not think I have ever had pizza delivered or tipped someone that delivered anything to my home. I tend to tip the the housekeepers however and waiters that go out of their way to make my experience as good as possible.

    But I firmly believe that service personal should be payed enough that tipping should not needed and if I know of a restaurant, hotel or any company where the employees need tips in order to make a deacent living then I try to stay away from thoes.

    Or you know. Lives in a civilised contry where we expect All people working to be earning a living wage by their job, and so why would The customer have to pay for the wages for the delivery people?

    I always tip 50% on the purchase.


    When it's a hollywood actor doing the delivery.

    They would be GenZers. Millennial are GenY.

    Early millennial's are approaching 40, Kids today are not millennial's.

    Besides the tip would be 15% of $16.58. so $2.50

    Are you mad because millenials don't agree with those tipping business models? Seems like millenials are smart to me.
