: Worked as a manager / driver for Papa John's for 6 years my dude, and my one piece of advice - try and get a delivery job for whatever the "nice" pizza place is in your town. The deals that Dominoes, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, etc. caters to people who don't make very much money. If you start delivering pizzas that cost $13 + delivery fee, people are going to give you the $20 and tell you to keep the change. Make 8-12 deliveries on a 4 hour evening shift and it starts working out in your favor.

: I never tip, I don't pay you to do your job, your employer does, not my problem you don't get paid enough, I shouldn't have to pay for that, go change the laws. I pay online when I order pizza from dominoes, you drive to my house, deliver the pizza and off you go, it's that simple, not gonna tip you for that. like what you want me to tip the cashier at the super market as well for doing their job?

SEKAI (OCE)
: You don't tip drivers in nations like Australia where delivery drivers actually get paid unlike say in the US where they may as well receive no pay and live entirely off tips (unless they came through the flood to deliver your shitty ass pizza that you inhumanely ordered, I guess). The tipping culture in the US originally came about because employers don't want to pay their waitresses and delivery drivers, and also now used as a justification to not give them any wages as supposedly and allegedly that they survive just fine off wages and so there is no need to pay them extra or some nonense. It's basically a culture of worker exploitation and abuse.

"Just saying, at all these goons who think they're protesting the system by not tipping while still ordering food... you're not doing anything at all. The corperations you're objecting to are still making money. You're just fucking over the people spending their own money on gas to serve it to you. You aren't making a practical objection. If you wanted to do that, DONT ORDER OUT FOOD AT ALL. If you're going to bother, tip your servers. Don't order but then refuse tip as protest, you're fucking over the people most affected by this then telling them to pick themselves up by their bootstraps, you're eating overpriced food in their faces while being a pretentious jerk. Seriously if you object to how things are just don't even bother ordering in the first place." Btw OP you don't need more than 1-2 threads, I'd chill before boards mods see this as spamming.

THIS. I was looking for this comment or I was going to type it myself. Yes, delivery drivers and servers would like tips and stand to make more money off of them, but if they don't get enough tips to meet the minimum wage requirements, their employer HAS to make up the difference by law. And in my state, if i'm driving for work I get paid 54.5 cents per mile by LAW. In addition, it is a false claim that delivery drivers don't get any of the so called "Delivery Fee/Charge". They do in fact get a portion.

: I have a question about tips. A lot of places that allow you to pay online also allow you to tip the driver online. I'm always a bit skeptical that if I tip online then the driver might not get the full tip amount or any of it at all. Do you know if that is ever the case? I just always tip the driver in person to make sure they get the money.

Instead of paying their employees they manipulated a culture where we bully ourselves into extortion. Then make sure to seek out restaurants that have gratuity as part of the bill, or at least actively avoid restaurants that don't. But it's the consumer's fault that such restaurants are scarce. They see the higher upfront cost and instead choose to go to a restaurant that gives lower upfront costs but don't include a gratuity as part of the bill. Do they end up paying the same? Yeah, usually (sometimes even more). Yet consumers still go to the lower initial cost place anyway. But picking a restaurant where their employees count on tips as part of their wages, and *not* tipping them, is certainly not going to change that. You're just cutting into the employees expected money for the sake of being smug and saving yourself a few bucks.
> You're just cutting into the employees expected money for the sake of being smug. This exactly. "I hate the cooperation so that must mean everyone who works for them is a piece of shit"
: So I was actually wondering what happens with tipping through card ? How do you know you get tips ?

If you tip in the same process as purchasing the food, the tip actually gets taxed out. So lets say you tipped $10 for easy math sake, 20% of that tip gets taken out and goes to the company, so the tip will be $8 for the driver. The best way to tip a driver/waiter is honestly cash in hand, because nothing gets tampered with and it goes straight into their pocket. The way we do things is that if someone writes a tip down on the receipt, they count it all up and give us the total at the end of the night, which is why my job is nice because I can get anywhere from $45-$70 cash in hand daily.

Who said anything about assault? I said nothing about escalating the situation. The person in charge of your food might just remember who you are and will only put forth the bare minimum that is required of them. This might mean that your stop is the last one that they go to when they have multiple orders that they are delivering, prioritizing making someone else's order over yours when preparing, putting your cold soda in the bag with your hot pizza to save space, or just giving you the minimum amount of topping if they are in charge of preparing your pizza.

: I agree with other posters, greedy business owners should just pay minimum wage at the minimum instead of having people tip. Tipping ruins the service industry both for the employees and the customers, and the owners are the ones that only benefit from it. The employees have to rely on tips and are really upset and nervous about being tipped while the customers feel uncomfortable with thinking what to tip the employees. The owners get to pocket those extra savings and call it a day. In other countries besides United States, tipping is not only discouraged but also can be illegal because the service industry gets paid a livable wage. In fact we used to not tip either and it was considered vulgar to tip someone but then somewhere along the lines the restaurant industry decided to shift it into a tip based job (I don't remember why). If other countries and United States (in the past) could pay servers a reasonable wage without tipping, then we should go back to it. I'll still tip when I can, but I won't follow a 15% rule. I tip based on the service. If you do a good job, I'll tip a good 15-20%. If you cut my hair and do a great job, you get a 50% tip. Other services that require some skill other than food usually get ~30% tip. I don't tip delivery drivers much (sorry op) and maybe it's 10ish%. I tip maybe max 5% if I'm picking up food. If you do a poor job like delivery my food cold, make me wait in a restaurant for 3 hours for my food (this has happened!), are rude, or anything else that really ruins my experience, then I won't tip. I'm not going to tip out of obligation because there isn't enough money coming into your paychecks if you do a terrible job. That's not how it should work. If you are in the service industry, you are expected to perform a decent service and I'll pay extra accordingly. Oh and PS as this actually happened before: If you come after me and say I didn't tip the 15% or something like that, I will take back the tip, make a scene, tell everyone I know not to support the establishment, and I will leave scathing reviews on yelp and other sites to make sure no one has to go through that. There was this one time at an event where the group paid $30 in tips and the manager came at us and said we didn't tip $35 and our bill won't be considered paid. The guy who was serving us kept messing up our orders constantly and gave a person who specifically said "NO SEAFOOD IM ALLERGIC" a plate of scallops.

: If your tips don't make up the difference between your wage and the untipped minimum wage, your employer is supposed to make up the difference. > A tipped employee engages in an occupation in which he or she customarily and regularly receives more than $30 per month in tips. An employer of a tipped employee is only required to pay $2.13 per hour in direct wages if that amount combined with the tips received at least equals the federal minimum wage. If the employee’s tips combined with the employer's direct wages of at least $2.13 per hour do not equal the federal minimum hourly wage, the employer must make up the difference. Many states, however, require higher direct wage amounts for tipped employees. In addition your employer should be reimbursing you on a per-diem basis for the miles you drive delivering pizzas, and at 11 hours I believe you should be getting overtime.

Can you explain what you mean by that? Sorry I'm new to working and stuff.

The reason I know this is because I've been on quite a few ride along's. Honestly, my recommendation is to find another job. A grocery job is not fun, but you will make more money without having to rely on tips. There are a lot of jobs out there that don't have to make you suffer. I never worked in the service industry except grocery stores and I don't plan on ever going back to those jobs. The extra stress of having an unstable income is not worth it.

Well it's like I said in a previous comment, I'll usually make 13 bucks an hour, it's just when I do 9 deliveries in a row and not get a single cent. That's when it becomes a problem.

In Japan, for example, people are taught that a job well done is its own reward, and there have been cases where employees will actually follow foreign customers out of the restaurant to return their money if they tip. Tipping in many Asian cultures is considered disrespectful to the server. Why is it "required" in the West? Because capitalism necessitates it, and nothing else. Except that doesn't change that in the West not tipping is considered rude. Just as you shouldn't tip in Japan you *should* tip in the U.S. In japan tipping is taken as, "This business probably isn't doing well, here is some extra money". In the U.S. not tipping is taken as, "You did such a horrible job that you don't deserve a tip".

: I agree with other posters, greedy business owners should just pay minimum wage at the minimum instead of having people tip. Tipping ruins the service industry both for the employees and the customers, and the owners are the ones that only benefit from it. The employees have to rely on tips and are really upset and nervous about being tipped while the customers feel uncomfortable with thinking what to tip the employees. The owners get to pocket those extra savings and call it a day. In other countries besides United States, tipping is not only discouraged but also can be illegal because the service industry gets paid a livable wage. In fact we used to not tip either and it was considered vulgar to tip someone but then somewhere along the lines the restaurant industry decided to shift it into a tip based job (I don't remember why). If other countries and United States (in the past) could pay servers a reasonable wage without tipping, then we should go back to it. I'll still tip when I can, but I won't follow a 15% rule. I tip based on the service. If you do a good job, I'll tip a good 15-20%. If you cut my hair and do a great job, you get a 50% tip. Other services that require some skill other than food usually get ~30% tip. I don't tip delivery drivers much (sorry op) and maybe it's 10ish%. I tip maybe max 5% if I'm picking up food. If you do a poor job like delivery my food cold, make me wait in a restaurant for 3 hours for my food (this has happened!), are rude, or anything else that really ruins my experience, then I won't tip. I'm not going to tip out of obligation because there isn't enough money coming into your paychecks if you do a terrible job. That's not how it should work. If you are in the service industry, you are expected to perform a decent service and I'll pay extra accordingly. Oh and PS as this actually happened before: If you come after me and say I didn't tip the 15% or something like that, I will take back the tip, make a scene, tell everyone I know not to support the establishment, and I will leave scathing reviews on yelp and other sites to make sure no one has to go through that. There was this one time at an event where the group paid $30 in tips and the manager came at us and said we didn't tip $35 and our bill won't be considered paid. The guy who was serving us kept messing up our orders constantly and gave a person who specifically said "NO SEAFOOD IM ALLERGIC" a plate of scallops.

The reason I know this is because I've been on quite a few ride along's. It's just a massive fuck you to my face when you can afford to pay $20 for a pizza and a side, but cannot even spare me 1-2 bucks for driving to your house on my gas and vehicle while giving you excellent service.

Ok, then all restaurants need to be closed because Waitors live off of tips.
Kanzler (NA)
: Dominos specifically has a delivery fee and they explicitly say that the delivery fee is not a tip. What is this delivery fee going towards if they are paying you so little? Unfortunately there are a few jobs, like delivery drivers and waiters, that are paid below minimum wage because tips are supposed to make up the difference. Also unfortunately, you get people who dont tip because they are under the impression that they are "not obligated to make sure you get paid".

Also unfortunately, you get people who dont tip because they are under the impression that they are "not obligated to make sure you get paid". We have a 3.50 delivery fee, it goes towards mileage on our car, which is 28 cents a mile. We don't technically get the delivery fee in a sense, it goes to the company.
: My parents taught me to make sure to always tip these jobs unless they did absolutely abysmal; The delivery man/woman. Waiter/waitress. Barber. While I don't carry cash on me, thankfully most places allows you to tip through your card as well.

Yeah, you can tip through your card, right down your tip amount on your receipt , or pay cash. There's literally no reason not to.

I agree, but Riot won't remove it because people will have a pissy fit. Personally, the thought of having a duo queue that knows your strategy and is in voice comms with you is completely fucking unfair, but hey that's just me.
