Tipping the Pizza guy!!!

Just got into an argument(nothing big, more of a debate) with my husband about not tipping the pizza man. I told him I would go pick it up and he told me no, and that the $2 delivery charge should cover their tip.
Do you tip the pizza guy? Or do you think the $2 fee should cover it???

  • The $2 fee doesn't always go to the driver. It didn't when I delivered pizza.

  • we never have, out here in Wa but after traveling I've found that most people do, Now that they charge a delivery fee, we just go pick it up these days anyways. Especially since the pizza joint is 8 blocks away.

  • No- that barely covers the gas (It's over $3.00/gal here) We usually give a $2-3 tip depending on how much we order.

  • The delivery charge often does not go to the delivery guy. I always tip.

  • I always tip 2-3 dollars. I feel horrible if I don't. I used to work on tips so I know how it feels

  • The delivery fee covers their gas, not them bringing it. We ALWAYS tip.

  • PP is right about the fee not going to the driver. As a waitress they are working on tips and get paid a very small hourly wage. I usually tip b/n 3-5 and its usually 5 when I know the driver. We live in a small town so i know most of the drivers lol. If tipping is an agrument then your best bet would be to just pick up

  • We tip the driver a few bucks, but more often than not we pick it up to avoid the extra cost.
