    tesco grocery delivery men

    Just done our first online shopping with Tesco, delivery was fine, everything ok....

    My question is. Do you give the delivery man a tip?

    The missus seemed to think he was hanging about a bit, and she said was he expecting a tip..

    What do you do???

    i rarely ever tip..or if i do the tip i give is "want more money? get a better job!"

    i never have, been getting my shopping delivered for 2 years now

    they shouldn;t expect a tip - its up to you, but im a sucker who always tips people even if they dont deserve it.. my missus kicks my **** when i tip arrogant sh#ts

    nope, they have a job and get paid.
    Better than being on the dole, they should tip you as you are j=keeping them employed.
    The £5 delivery cost is for them.

    Did he want an actual tip, as in cash, or do you think he maybe wanted a "tip" of the missus?

    Interesting ;-)

    nice avi:thumbsup:

    I never have, but then all that happens is that he gets it out o the van and puts it on the doorstep - if he put it in the cupboards...that might be a different story!

    yeah - give him a tip "DON'T SHOP AT TESCO's"

    Whats the point of getting your groceries delivered, paying the delivery … Whats the point of getting your groceries delivered, paying the delivery charge and then tipping the driver, adding extra £10 on top of your shopping :?Do you tip your postman when he drops of a parcel?



    who says anything about a tenner?

    yes i do tip the postman at xmas as it goes as well or i used to.....only thing is in london its not the same 1 so its a little difficult

    you said they get paid a wage along with a few others but yet i imagine most of you tip in a restaurant if any of you go anywhered other than mcdonalds.....not a dig btw.....whats the difference?

    depends on the scenario but generally if the delivery man comes with a big shop he will get enough for a pint or at least a tin of beer from the fridge:) we aint talkin notes here

    The question made me think and I must be weird.

    I tip delivery of takeaway but not a weekly shop. How I make a difference is beyond me actually but there we go.

    At chrimble I tip. Usually beer though

    I'd like to say that it's down to the delivery charge but it can't be. I got some free delivery codes for adsa from here and didn't tip then either.

    I need to re-think that. You're right.

    we never had groceries delivered when i was a lad so.....i made a new tradition

    if i only ever went on what id been shown and brought up on i would never have left the village......thats a poor excuse im afraid

    I only tip when i'm abroad for some reason like a waiter

    same as you bought a drink/meal why should you tip the barman/waiter:?

    cant see where you are coming from really but your right its your choice:)

    sorry to pick on ur post btw as there were several others spouting the same crap

    they are not allowed to accept any tips and should they do then they should be reported for it as its against the rules

    i understood what u were saying but i cant comprehend how you discriminate between who gets a tip and who doesnt they all get paid to do their jobs so why tip 1 and not the other?

    you dont have personal contact with the driver of a train so its not the same.....

    no thats not what i meant i am refering only to tesco delivery drivers they are not allowed to accept anything and if i as another employee of tesco found out someone was accepting tips then i would have to report them.
