Pizza Delivery

I wonder how many customers realize that by rewarding my prompt, courteous service with crappy tips like the one i just got, that they’re pricing me out of my job. I took a delivery that was 14 miles round trip and got a $5 tip on a $50 order. So not only was it less than a waiter would get for the same amount, I had to use 3/4 of a gallon of gas to take it. So after gas I made about $2.75. If this keeps up I’ll have to quit because it will make more sense to work somewhere where I get to stay in one spot. Customers are so clueless sometimes.

  1. It feel u, since u got drive 7 miles the store should charge the customer some type of fee or give u extra $ . What would happen if the order was 15 bucks,the 5 would still sting,imo a five dollar tip for a 50 dollar bill is not that good,it’s ok. Where I live a store 7 miles away probably won’t delivery to me.

  2. Most places, including the one I work at do charge a delivery fee. None of it goes to me. Most places are doing that now. They blame the economy, but they’re screwing over the people who make delivery possible, and, often paying us cash (below minimum), so we could get them in trouble for that…
