Eh, I live in California and the pizza place I love isn't too close. I prefer their service because they're always prompt, well groomed, most are in their late 20s, friendly but not too friendly, and most importantly the pie's delicious. So I always tip 3 for each pizza and 3 for gas. I tip for the pizza online and hand 'em three bucks and say for gas when they get here. If it's hot out I offer a bottle of water. If it's a Holiday I order the day before or at least add two more bucks to the gas tip.

I figure if I'm only ever gonna order from them I'd best have a good relationship.

God I'm glad Australia has better minimum wage than America, regardless of the fact we don't tip like in the US.


Yes and the cost of living is so much cheaper... Living the lie.

DO you think it's wise to intentionally be a dick to those who handle your food behind closed doors? Now leave a tip you cheap f**ks!

1. They make minimum wage just like everyone else, if the employee does not make enough in tips to cover the credit, the employer must pay the difference.
2.If the employer does not pay for mileage, it is tax deductible. Even if the employer pays for mileage it might still be tax deductible.

"Yes, they only get a few dollars an hour. This guy said it was $4, it at least used to be less. It may vary by state, but I remember friends getting $2.35/hour before tips. It sucks, but most people do make a decent wage from the tips. Unless they do a horrible job of course."

Well that blows. Remember Reservoir Dogs.

Wait. So if I understand correctly (looking at you whodat and broizfam), the people in this particular industry are being paid below minimum wages, plus on top of that they are apriori taxed on tips that are voluntary and not mandatory?

Wow now that's one hell of a rip off scheme.

"@lauriloo, you can still go to school while you have a job"

Yes, but obviously they didn't intend to so there was no reason to find another job before quitting the current one. When I was going for my chem eng. degree we were advised to not have a job if we could help it because the workload was so hard.

I worked as a pizza delivery driver and I guess these people don't realize that WE KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE. There's been times when a customer was being a dick. I waited until it rained real good, then took a sack of pinto beans and threw them all over the yard. In a couple of months, they had beans all over the yard. I have also poured salt on peoples lawns and filled their keyhole to the front door with glue. My friend had one of those car boots (don't ask how he got it cause I don't know) and let me use it on this house that was out of our delivery area. Anyways, they told the manager that they would tip but never did. I waited for a Sunday about a week later, drove out to the house, and slapped that boot on that wheel. I hope he lost his job over that. My favorite way to deal with non-nice individuals was to carry around about $3 of pennies. So, when they wanted all of their change back, they got pennies from heaven.

@broizfam - Yeah, my girlfriend worked at Applebees for a few years when she was in college and when the servers would checkout after a shift they'd have to enter their tips in the computer. The f*cked up part was that the software they used would give them an error and they couldn't checkout if the amount in tips entered was less than 15% of their total sales. If someone got f*cked over really bad, and the manager on duty was in a good mood, they'd go in and delete some their sales to fudge the numbers so they weren't taxed for tips they never made but that didn't happen all the time.

And, if I recall correctly from an accounting course MANY years ago (and if it's still the case), they're taxed on "expected" tip income so not getting tipped is actually losing money, not just not getting money.

F*ck that guy, I would have thrown those pizzas through the door so he had to spend the rest of the night cleaning up cheese & sauce from the carpet & walls. I always tip generously over the holidays, it's the least I could do for someone stuck at work while everyone else is out having a good time.

wait, tipping means the staff don't get minimum wage from their employer, they make it up through tips?

@YANKmyDOODLE: When you order pizza, go to a restaurant etc you know that these people are being paid below minimum wage and that tip is a requirement. At the same time, because these places don't have to pay their employees as much, they don't have to charge the customers as much, so money you are spending on tipping is money that you are saving from the food price.

In fact it's better for the customer for this system to be in place. If an employee is making 4.5$, and getting about 5$ in tips, the extra money is costing the customer 5$. If you abolished mandatory tipping and the business was expected to cover the 5$, the cost of getting the 5$ into the employee's pocket would actually be 8-10$ once you accounted for taxes etc. Who do you think would be paying that extra 8-10$. The customer, through higher food prices.

Also I've been to regions without mandatory tipping... on average the service is worse.

There shouldn't BE a tip system that regulates salary.

"you're supposed to find a better job before you quit. and tipping should never be required and only used as an incentive to do a good job."

Didn't read it? They said they were going to quit to go back to school. The second part of your statement would be true if people were paid a normal wage and tips were extra for going above and beyond, like they should be.

New Years Eve is a super busy time, tipping should be MUCH higher than normal. The tightwad got what he deserved (if it's a true story of course).
