Do you tip for delivery? *update*

My husband recently got laid off and is now delivering pizza while he looks for a new job. He's a great man and if he's later then they were told because he got lost or the person answering the order didnt check the distance and it was out of thee range he will refuse the tip. He once delivered to the fire department and refused a tip to show his respect for what they do for a living.

Anyways, more often then not he doesn't get a tip from normal everyday people. He delivers to this one women who is always like a dollar short and never tips. I would never imagine not tipping for delivery I always assumed it was what you did

*my husband pays for his own gas. And only makes $8/hr he works 12 hour days

If she is a dollar short I would refuse to give her the pizza till she had the amount.

Yes, I always tip. I work a job where tips make up a good portion of my income so I understand how important they can be.

Depends. 

If you come to my door with a piss poor attitude and five minutes past my delivery time, then nope you don't get a tip. 

But if it's a bad weather night, and you have a pleasant attitude, and are on time then you get a two-three dollar tip

I've delivered pizzas off and on for the past 15 years. Most people tip. You are supposed to tip. That's how the drivers make their money.

We normally give 1-3 dollars. If the order is under 19 we give 20 bucks. If it's over 19 we just add 2 dollars and the change..

I think a tip is in order , my husband delivers for lowes and they deliver household appliances and hook up appliances and often extra work and more than most dont tipped i think it should be a common courtesy to tip no matter what the delivery is.... IT SHOULD BE MANDATORY , i thought this before my husband even delivered because i waited tables and all i took was a plate to the table and expected a tip sooo of course delivery drivers deserve one.
