Driver does not get the delivery fee he only gets what you tip on top of the delivery fee.

That's not my problem, I've already paid for delivery. Don't like it, - find another job.

Well you certainly deserve your mystery pizza surprise. I feel bad for anyone that eat's a pizza delivered to your house. Don't like it, - don't order pizza.

I think it's fairly reasonable to tip someone who is specially driving food to your house. You're literally saving 20 minutes of your life, for 5 bucks. I don't know about you, but I value my time far more than 15 bucks an hour, and am happy to pass that benefit onto the poor schmuck who has to deliver pizza's in the snow.

The real problem is that the rest of us have to make up for your tips, in essence, to ensure the driver keeps working. If no one tipped, no one would deliver pizza because it wouldn't be worth it.

Not entirely true. The pizza place is paying for your friends driving insurance, and mileage/wear and tear on their car. Fairly sure they have to, by law. That's where at least half of the delivery fee goes.

Are you unable to comprehend the idea? I pick up my own food. However, if I'm forced to order a delivery when pizza place is less than 5 minutes walk away and get charged for it, not my problem! Whenever the establishment doesn't charge me for delivery, I gladly tip the driver.

They must be getting minimum wage then? What's the difference between doing a minimum wage job as a delivery driver vs working as the McD cashier? Why does the delivery driver suddenly expect tips but the other guy working the cashier, who also deals with customers face to face for minimum wage, don't? A lot of times these delivery fees for pizza places are insane. Sometimes you can call a cab and do a round trip for stores that are relatively close by and come out ahead. Costs even less if you have a car and you account for gas cost.

See I never worry about that because I rarely if ever order delivery and never take a taxi. Take out and driving here. Self service.

P.S: Deliver or pick up, I always tips those hard worker. I even tip at McDonald, but the cashier refuses telling me it is against their policy. 🤷‍♂️

"They must be getting minimum wage then?"
= 9 bucks an hour

"What's the difference between doing a minimum wage job as a delivery driver vs working as the McD cashier?"
=9 bucks an hour vs 14 an hour, and no benefits, sick days paid etc.

" Why does the delivery driver suddenly expect tips but the other guy working the cashier, who also deals with customers face to face for minimum wage, don't?"
=The delivery driver is 9 bucks an hr, he is using his own car with his own fuel out of pocket. When its Snowing, raining, cold, hot, he is out there to deliver food to you @ 5 dollars less than minimum wage hoping the 3 bucks out of your pocket will help offset that. The toll your car takes as a delivery driver is very real. All that stooping, going, turning off the car, turning on the car, balljoints, speed bumps on your suspension etc. You think pizza pizza(or any of them)is paying for any of that? again, no employee benefits, no

even if he was 14 an hour like the mcdonalds rep, his car, his fuel, his parking, etc. its really not the same. Plus customers in the comfort of their own homes are / can be complete A$$hole vs being in a store surrounded by people in a business. Again no comparing the two jobs.

"A lot of times these delivery fees for pizza places are insane. Sometimes you can call a cab and do a round trip for stores that are relatively close by and come out ahead. Costs even less if you have a car and you account for gas cost."
Delivery fees are never given to the devilry drivers. that's to the corporation.

Tip your delivery man. You pay 20 bucks give him a toonie smh. that 10 Percent for those who don't do math so well. All of this is assuming the delivery driver isn't an A$$hole too. If two dolalrs or even 5 is too much then maybe eating out isn't a the most feasible thing to be doing to begin with? how broke / cheap . disgruntled do you have to be that 2- 5 bucks is going to hurt your wallet?

Tipping is optional not mandatory. So if you feel like tipping go ahead, if not then fine. I generally tip after delivery depending on the speed of delivery and just give the guy a toonie.
