I just had a pizza delivered, Im working and tired and didnt feel like cooking for just myself.


So the pizza guy gets here, and I said that I was sorry but I couldnt tip this time. I normally DO tip, but I just didnt have the extra this time. 

And he got snarky and said 'yeah whatever lady, tell me another one' And starts to storm away. 

Oh hell no. 

I said 'Excuse me, it is not MY fault that you are in your what, 50s? and still working as a delivery boy for dominos. If i cannot tip you, I cannot tip you. And when i cant tip, i make sure to remember, to make up for it the next time. But you can be sure, you will NEVER recieve a tip from me, and your boss will hear about this. have a good night sir"


fucking pissed me off.

Guess what. I had pizza tonight with my husband for a date night. 

And the pizza guy got tipped.

At least you had the courtesy to mention it.  You could have just taken the pizza, given him the money, and closed the door.  The only reason you said something was because you normally tip.  People who deliver pizza, any kind of food service workers (waitresses, etc.) know that tips are never a given.  They know some people tip, some don't.  Most do - some are good tippers, and some are lousy - but the tip is meant to be the cherry on top, not the ice cream.  He forgot that when it comes to food service, you have to just grin and bear it, and remain courteous.  Was he someone who had delivered to your house before?

Why did you insult him like that?  Your reaction was bit over the top in my opinion.

If I can't afford a tip, then I just don't order. My opinion only.
