I know I’ve talked about tipping before, but I just got inspiration to revisit it again. I know that if you live in other countries it’s not quite the same, but if you live in the US you need to ALWAYS TIP. Most people in the food industry get 3 bucks for their minimum wage and after that everything they earn is in tips. Aim for 20% and adjust depending on the quality of the service.
Also, if you get delivery a lot you really need to consider how you tip. Your name and address are in the system of the restaurant you order from, and if you don’t tip well or you yell at the driver or you are just a douchebag in general, it will be noted in your file and from that point on every person who makes and handles your food will know exactly how you treat your driver, and it can suck for you pretty hard. Some places will just put your food as last priority, but some may decide to spit in it or do any other unsavory things. If you tip well and act like a decent human being, however, you could get a nice little note in your file which will (hopefully) protect your food and make you more of a priority when it comes to dispatching orders.
But really, tipping is just a decent thing to do and it’s legitimately the least you can do to help another human being who just helped you. Tip pls.
