I normally tip, but have got no change at the moment.....My flatmate swears against tipping them, but he won't tip in places like Gourmet Burger aswell so he's just a tight ****

Do you normally tip the pizza delivery guy?

They get paid to deliver your food, so why give them extra money for doing their job? Like DAMNOME said you don't tip your postie

If it arrives on time, and they're polite, then yea. Even if it's late sometimes, if they apologise for the delay. It's probably not their fault at the end of the day.

I've done food delivery before, they're paid an absolute pittance, and tips can make a huge difference to what you take home at the end of the night. It's probably not what they want to be doing on a friday/Saturday night, but sometimes it's what they have to do to get by - sometimes though after petrol costs, they might only just break even. Most are using their own cars, it means a lot of extra miles, a lot more wear and tear on the car through constant stopping and starting, short journeys etc.

if its that bad they can do something else. I dont get any tips in my job and sure they're not just getting by if own and run a car.
pointless saving a couple of quid on 12 cans of coke, 50 toilet rolls and torch of here to give it to some stranger.

if you are going to tip the delivery driver you may as well tip everybody you exchange money with. I still feel guilty when I don't tip after a meal. I have no idea why certain sectors still get tipped

A lot can't get anything else. I did it as an addition to a full time job and it really is that bad - it topped up my earnings by a really minimal amount, but it made life just that little bit easier.

It's your call whether you tip or not obviously, but personally, if I'm feeling flush enough to spend £30 or so on pizza, drinks and sides, I can spare another quid or two for the guy that delivered it - on minimum wage and probably base rate tax - saving me having to go out in the peeing rain to collect it myself.

1. Yes, I always do if they're on time and polite.

2. No-one should feel obliged to tip.

It's cheaper to buy pizza and wings at my local than just pizza.

How to annoy a pizza guy:

1. Ask about pizza maintenance and repair.
2. Ask for extra homo-sapien
3. Ask for the guy who took your order last time.
4. Ask if the pizza is organically grown.
5. Ask them if you get a free date with one of the staff if you make an order over £30.
6. Ask if they have any idea what is at stake with this pizza.
7. Ask if they're familiar with the term "spanking a pizza." Make up a description to go with the term. Ask that this be done to your pizza.
8. Ask if you get to keep the pizza box. When they say yes, heave a sigh of relief.
9. Order a one-inch pizza.
10. Tell them to put the crust on top this time.
11. Ask what the order taker is wearing.
12. Ask them to not put a band-aid on it this time or you will sue.
13. Change your accent every three seconds.
14. Dance all around the word "pizza." Avoid saying it at all costs. If he says it, say, "Please don't mention that word."
15. Learn to properly pronounce the ingredients of a Twinkie. Ask that these be included in the pizza.
16. If using a touch-tone, press random numbers while ordering. Ask the person taking the order to stop doing that.
17. Imitate the order taker's voice.
18. Move the mouthpiece farther and farther from your lips as you speak. When the call ends, jerk the mouthpiece back into place and scream GOODBYE at the top of your lungs.
19. Order 52 pepperoni slices prepared in a fractal pattern as follows from an equation you are about to dictate. Ask if they need paper.
20. Order two toppings, then say, "No, they'll start fighting."
21. Put an extra edge in your voice when you say "crazy bread."
22. Say hello, act stunned for five seconds, then behave as if they called you.
23. Tell them to double-check to make sure your pizza is, in fact, dead.
24. When they repeat your order, say, "Again, with a little more OOMPH this time."
25. Terminate the call with, "Remember, we never had this conversation."

They get paid to deliver your food, so why give them extra money for doing their job? Like DAMNOME said you don't tip your postie

But your Postie is not a face to face transaction and even if it is it is never a cash transaction.

I always tip on cash transactions when a service is provided. However, if the service is poor I then go elsewhere....as in my Dominos thread the other week. I will never ever purchase another Dominos pizza as long as I live in this area, therefore the people who work for that company have shot themselves in the foot by:
A) selling me a pathetic pizza with incredibly poor toppings
B) Letting the delivery driver destroy it by smashing it all over the box

I always tip no matter what, if it is a bad product or poor service then I move elsewhere and then the company that is consistent gets to keep my business and the person who is the point of contact gets the tip.

You my friend, are absolutely spot on.

I don't generally tip pizza delivery. Mainly because my local don't accept cash on delivery anymore so I have to pay on card.

Wasn't there a court case over the hard rock cafe using tips to make up staff salaries to the minimum wage?

Why would you tip them ? Its their job. Are you going to give every 16-17 year old a tip who serves you on the till because they are minimum wage ? Course not. The pizza guy chose to do the job hoping to actually meet mugs like you who tip him. This means he can do his pizza job for a few hours a night and get just as much as someone who does a full time job and pays tax and insurance. Bet the pizza guy doesn't declare his earnings.

Wise up and don't tip them or we will end up like another America where you have to tip 15%.

And for the record. Myself and my wife do not tip. Its peoples jobs. Don't like the job ? Find a better one with better pay.

Dominos drivers do pay tax and insurance... And earnings are declared. While this isn't true of all takeaways, the big ones are run absolutely by the bookz

I really dont like idea of tipping it makes it awkward. You dont tip shopworkers and they do just as good a job and get paid the same. I dont think you should tip anywhere, though i have before due to pressure

The guy is an idiot. Implying that he shakes a fizzy drink before he gives it to a customer (the ones who didn't tip last time), it's not mandatory for someone to tip you. You shouldn't expect a tip, it's optional.

And this is why people don't tip.
