Hi all,

Had some shopping delivered last night, I usually have deliveries during the day
so last night was the first time hubby was home for the delivery.
After the delivery man left,my hubby turned to me and said..
"Did you not tip him"??

I'v never even thought of giving a tip before, my hubby tips anyone who delivers,
but I'v always just been kind to delivery man and never thought of tipping!
Do other people tip?
I feel really mean now!!

I hear what you are saying, but where does one stop?

I too felt quite mean after the delivery driver had gone, probably because it was obvious he was waiting for something. However, we all search for discount codes and reductions for products and delivery charges, so why would we just give any discount away in the form of a tip.

I didn't tip the postman, dustmen and the courier who delivered my mobile phone this morning.

So does he tip the postman every morning? :giggle:

I don't think you should tip a delivery driver, he is only doing his job.

But then i am not a fan of tips anyway, i don't think you should give someone money just for doing their job, which they are already getting paid to do!

Sorry no i never tip delivery men either and no its not mean, its their job, god i dont get tipped to survey quantities i just get p[aid, same as he did, so does your hubby tip the post man? i mean he never even paid to receive the post did he? someone else put a stamp on that and paid to send it to him, and you paid for the groceries to be delivered.
Dont feel bad see at as though if you went out shopping the poor bloke may be out of a job.

Well that was my answer lastnight, the delivery man seemed quite happy
to be delivering my stuff, but in the cold light of day I'v realised he may have been jolly
looking for a tip.
Was starting to get paranoid that maybe tipping him was the norm and I'd just never realised!:oops:

Dont worry bout it, they are NOT allowed to accept tips, bottom line, it is looked on as Gross Misconduct, so even if you offer, it should be refused.

"1 or so is not worth him losing his job over.

i used to work for tescos and quite often i went out delivering groceries, i would never dream of taking anything from the customers as you have all said i got paid for doing the jo and the customer has already paid for me delivering it as well.

Althou it is nice to be appreciated by the custiomers but a thanks very much is all that is needed :)

Totally agree. There are onlytwo occasions when anyone gets any extra money from me.

1. Xmas - Milkman, Postman and Binman all get a card with a £10 in it. They also knock on and say thankyou.

2. Resturants, but only if the food and service is good.
#9
I worked for home delivery for Tesco and another supermarket in the past and they are not allowed to accept a tip the same way the staff in store can't. It is a written warning is anyone finds out.

Don't feel so bad now!
I do tip people in restaraunts etc and I guess it would totally defeat the
point of searching for (and rarely finding!!) working tesco codes, If I were to tipdelivery man.
Cheers all. My conscience is clear!

When I worked at Tesco (In-store) I got tipped for taking goods out to a customers car - they tipped me but I just put the money in charity box on the tills! :)
#14
No I don't tip the drivers and its never crossed my mind that I should and I've been getting groceries delivered since 2002.
If I tipped everyone who brought a delivery,I be poor!.
Everytime a courier delivers or collects a parcel return.

Got to admit though it must be hard work delivering the groceries when they got deliver to flats,I bet they dread it if lift not working or some flats with a few floors don't even have a lift and gotta go to 5th floor or something.

I have had my shopping delivered 3 times I think. I stay in a 3rd floor flat. The stairs are not that high,but it can leave you a bit out of breath. I give the delivery drivers who carry my shopping up to save me the hassle of doing it £1. Yes they get paid,it's there job etc. but I think a wee quid is a nice gesture and worth it to save me the hassle. I know I pay the delivery price,but I also tip the driver who delivers my chinease take away or my indian take away,pizza etc. Same thing. If you don't your are what we call in Scotland a TAB - tight a***d b*****d! :whistling:

Many years ago when I worked in Tandy (remember them) we enjoyed advising our regular customers to wait on buying something if we knew it was coming down in price on offer in the next month's flyer. The boss had a great set-up for tips. We couldn't take them, but he reasoned that as we were next to an off licence we should tell everyone we saved £50 for to go and buy us four cans. We built a patio out back of the shop and spent the summer months having after work barbeques and beers! Ah, those were the days!
#20
Best tip I could give our Tesco's delivery driver is give us the right ferking bags for a change!!!!!
#21
What a right bunch of tight fisted mean people some of you are. I ALWAYS give a tip to the driver when he delivers, like 'close the ******* gate next time on your way out' or 'carry 6 bags at a time and you'll save yourself a trip to the van'

you lot make me sick.

Don't agree with tipping AT ALL! I had an awful experience with Pickfords removal men after splitting up with my partner and I have NEVER tipped anyone since. I gave them £20 and heard them call me "last of the big spenders" . What did they expect? £100 perhaps on top of the £600 I had already paid for them to do their Bl***y Job!!
The whole issue of tipping is awkward, embarrassing and ultimately expensive. If companies don't pay their staff enough - tough! I expect the service I have paid for and done with a good grace and not to have to pay some wierd unspoken and unknown amount on top. Ridiculous practice that should be outlawed.

I can see why he left you.

They get paid for their job. Why should you tip? This is England, not America :)
I do tip (sometimes) and you should see the shocked look on the op's face :D
Generally, I dont tip. They are doing their job.
#25
I work as a Tesco delivery driver, yes its true we are not allowed to accept tips BUT you get told in training you can accept them just be careful of how much you accept and off of who, it is nice when someone chucks you a quid or 2 makes your day better and a life saver if you leave your wallet at home!

I just tend to sleep with the female delivery drivers. And the female posties!

Bless them all, spread the love, it is Christmas after all!
