To tip or not to tip? – that is the question. Most of us abide by the “tip for good service” rule and will happily spend a few pennies when our food has been delivered promptly and with a smile. But, there’s a few of us that don’t – which is just rude really.
To get back at these people, a pizza delivery driver has come up with a pretty hilarious plot. “Every night I get people who will not tip,” he wrote. “The worst is when it’s a large and expensive order.
“If I’m late and they don’t tip, I understand I didn’t provide a good service and don’t deserve a tip.
“Orders where I get there quickly and provide good service but they don’t tip kinda make me mad.”
When the driver feels they deserved a tip for a job well done and they don’t receive one, he uses the number that originally placed the order and schedules two early morning wake-up calls from an online service. So simple, yet so effective.
And, it sure beats some of the alternatives, as he explains:
“I’ve worked at a few delivery places over the years. If a repeat customer doesn’t tip, I’ve seen drivers spit or blow snot in the food (and worse).
“I think it’s wrong to mess with someone’s food, regardless of how they treat you. But if I don’t do something I just stay angry all night (maybe I need a different job).” Euurgh!
