It's inappropriate not to tip, but it's at least equally inappropriate to negotiate or even mention the tip. OP, your quote never happens, and if it does then you're in the right not to tip them because their expectation crosses a line in social propriety.

Delivery boy detected.

>> No.22403426

This is the common perception socially awkward people like to think happens.

The reality is that delivery people deal with being slighted the way normal people do all the time. They'll think you're a jerk and certainly not want to hang out with you, but they're not going to risk getting fired spitting in your pizza just because you didn't give them a tip. Assholes happen. It happens infrequently enough that it might ruin their day, but frequently enough that they can't go retaliating every time it happens to them.

And on the flip side, do you really believe that tipping a person well makes them eager to serve you? This guy delivers perhaps hundreds of pizzas a day. He doesn't care about you unless you're ordering from him like every few days (or placing a huge order every week). That one generous tip you give him one time isn't the basis of prompt, faithful service.

If you want people to get to your place more quickly, live closer to them. There's really not much else to it. If the guy's got 10 pizzas to deliver he can't just go out of his way to deliver your pizza out of order. He'll get complaints and lose out on other potential tips. It's not worth the extra 5% he MIGHT get from you based on past tipping experience. Instead, you're likely to get a smile, some more casual conversation, and a casual "bye, man" when he turns around and heads back to his car.

I can't believe I went and had to explain all of this. If you couldn't be bothered to read, then
TL;DR: Delivery people are human beings and there's no secret etiquette or trick to getting them to do shit for you.

(shit's way easier than bread)

Add 2 1/4 tsp yeast to 1 1/4c warm water, mix in 2tsp sugar & let proof 10 min (make sauce while waiting).

A Quick Sauce is just sautéed onions, 14oz can crushed tomato, small can tomato paste, maybe a little water; garlic, basil, oregano, salt & pepper to taste.

Make a well in 3cups flour, add yeast/water & 1/4 cup olive oil. Mix until too thick for whisk. Continue mixing with spoon, add flour until dough pulls away from sides. add a little flour at a time and kneed until spongy and only slightly tacky.

Divide in two, brush with olive oil and let rest 10 min covered. (Put the pan on top of the bowl).

>> No.22403531

Two things

1) That illustrates a serious problem with minimum wage laws, and people should be protesting and rallying to get restaurants to endorse legislation that promises minimum wage PLUS tips, thus easing the burden on this unspoken ritual crap. Because it IS unfair and I don't like the thought that my waiter's EXCELLENT service really only bridges the gap to get her to minimum wage.

2) Waiters can't afford the risk involved with fucking with food. There are health inspectors, internet divas who post on Yelp, and other employees who would not be as tolerant of a loogie in a bowl of soup. You simply can't know who your customer out there is, and if that loogie-soup goes out and it turns out to be an active Yelp reviewer, the restaurant goes under based on that one review. And if it's a health inspector and s/he catches some hair or something, again the restaurant faces stiff penalties and potentially closing down.

Most kitchen staff would rather see you bleed out on the kitchen floor than tamper with a dish.

Bake that shit for 15 - 20 min, until golden like in this pic, at 425 deg F, or 220C.

That first pic has no sauce. Instead: Browned Itallian sausage, bell-pepper, onion, feta cheese, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh basil & thyme (most of this shit's from my garden, growing shit's technology for zombie survivan).

Use 1c whole wheat in with the white for a heartier crust. Shit tastes so light and crispy, not oil drenched like that other shite... I don't even want to know how much grease they must use.

Use only Olive oil because it's good for your cholesterol.

Over the past month or two I started tipping more and more and my pizza started arriving 5-10 minutes faster on average. I think that delivery guys will treat you better (and give you as much priority as they can) if you tip them more.

However, I really dislike how tipping has become expected now due to below minimum wages. Tipping has lost pretty much all of it's meaning and you're completely expected to do so now. The only reason I don't not tip is because I feel bad that they are getting below minimum wage, but they're probably overpaid as is with it.

Tipping is a concept developed many years ago in Europe. TIP is an acronym meaning "To Insure Promptness". Today, tipping has become an "uniquely American" custom and is fully expected from your server, unless otherwise noted in the restaurant.
Tips are an incentive for the server to give good service. Since tipping is expected, though not mandatory, the customer is given a certain amount of power to reward good service or punish inferior service. However, servers do depend on tips for a living. According to the Minimum Wage Act, employers are able to pay "tipped employees" less than the mandated minimum wage because in theory, servers will earn tips to make up the difference between the two wages.
Michael Lynn, a researcher at Cornell University, actually did a study on customer reactions to restaurants who included tips in the price of the meal. Surprisingly, most people perceived these restaurants as more expensive than restaurants who expected customers to tip the server at the end of the meal. Also, there are restaurants, Per Se in New York is one, that tack on a 20% service charge to every bill instead of customers tipping the server directly. The money, which is still a form of tipping in my opinion, is then divided among all employees, who make a resonable wage.

Originally, public eating places were Inns, where there were no staff to serve you. You went to the bar to get your drink and to the kitchen to get your food and took it back to your table yourself. In places where the rich ate and drank, poor people used to wait around (hence the name "waiter") in case a rich person wanted their glass filled - in which case the rich person was expected to give the "waiter" a small payment, or tip, for saving him trouble. The Inns soon started to control who they would allow to wait, and then to employ their own waiters, but the custom of tipping remained, and the wages of the waiters reflected the fact that they were still getting tips.

Because it's more appealing to consumers when they see that a large pizza is 5 dollars.

What they don't tell you is that they're going to charge you a 3 dollar "delivery fee" on any order under 15 dollars, and you're expected to tip your delivery guy because paying him more would require the store to actually raise the prices they list in advertisements.
