what's your policy?
who does this?
they're charging £10-15 for a slice of bread with some cheap toppings on top as it is
At McDonalds, no. Pizza delivery is not exactly something that can be done well...it either arrives, or it doesn't. There is no service involved.
that the handing over of a Big Mac is in fact a form of service. Or the pouring of a beer. Or the scanning of a pint of milk at Tesco.
you're all mental
if you eat in a restaurant they're bringing your plates, taking them away, setting the table in advance, pouring your drinks, and smiling politely while you complain that the steak's a little bit underdone and would you mind awfully replacing it? - that's service
the pizza guy's handing you a cardboard box and going away
And it's almost exactly the same as any retail job but they serve less people for more time, and they deserve tips?
we got them to deliver one daY. it was absoluely hilarious
£26-27 worth of pizza last weekend = £30 and keep the change.
Same applies to Chinese delivery, taxi drivers (who actually know where they're fucking going) and people who generally put themselves in danger or gross situations (hi bikini wax lady).
but i just wouldn't because of the extortionate prices.
hence the tipping dilemma
i meant the price of take away pizzas/ food in general. i don't mind the odd pizza every now and then but I honestly enjoy the £1.99 ones you cook in the oven for 15 minutes more.
it's not service, it's their JOB.
