for takeaway food. How much is standard?
bonus question: do you tip the tesco delivery man?
Don't order any to avoid this situation
None. I use Ocado, you fucking pleb.
(don't tip the Ocado guy either)
However much the meal was.
it was just cos I thought they'd given it to me by accident and I didn't want it but the way I phrased made it sound like a reward for their hard work.
Don't tip any deliveries other than takeaways...
Don't tip em
Which almost certainly comes across as insanely patronising considering they're spending their day/evening delivering food to twats who can afford to spend daft money slowly killing themselves but won't stretch to bung an extra couple of quid in as a tip.
felt like a right knobend afterwards and havent done it since.
Christ, you people.
I agree, but it's stupid.
And to think how much moaning about the living wage there is on DiS!
I wouldn't have to tip anyway, would I?
So you'd end up paying the same as if you tipped them now.
cut out tips, prices and wages go up.
it's insulting to tip.
If on card, I always feel awkward giving them anything. Don't know why. I tip with a card payment if I'm drunk though.
if tesco people give extra service (helping take stuff upstairs or evs) then i'll chuck them a fiver
I worked as a delivery driver for a wee while and it was shite money. But if everyone had tipped you just a quid it would have made it worthwhile.
funnily enough it was always the people in nice houses that gave you fuck all.
so now I usually go £2. if you're lazy enough to be getting food delivered you can spare a couple of quid anyway.
not really. probably minimum wage.
it was dominos and they paid you an extra 30p a mile or something fucking stupid, which wasn't enough to cover your petrol. it was alright if it was somewhere in town, but sometimes you'd have to drive out to the sticks maybe 20-30 mins away and then the cunts wouldn't even tip you.
Rarely order more than about £10 or £15's worth of food, so there's either too much left of my cash to say keep it or not enough left for it to not be a savage slap to the face. Easier to swerve it entirely.
that's the thing, feels kinda insulting handing someone only a couple of quid but I'm too tight to give any more. moral quandary.
I think if I were due £2 change, I'd probably be happy to say 'keep it'. The issue is if there's more than £2 change. Somehow getting my change and then handing some of it backs seems more socially grating than just taking all my change back in doors with me.
The fact that this has more replies than the wank/fingering thread despite having been posted after it might be the most DiS thing of all time.
Already made a mental note to have a look at that on my phone on the way home. Work DiSing can be spent on tipping etiquette.
it was never going to last
I'd never think of tipping a tesco delivery person but I'm not sure why.
it's basically the same thing.
...are allowed to accept tips.
maybe they're not? idk
I get the feeling that's more of a full-time job with a wage whereas takeaway delivery drivers work much shorter hours and get work as it comes.
Probably total bullshit.
Whereas you have already paid the supermarket before they deliver
Cheers love, keep the change.
Here are all of your big heavy shopping bags.
Oooh lovely. Here's a couple of quid, get yourself some sweets.
you odn't tend to pay for that in cash, so you can't really round it up nonchalantly.
Also their job seems more of a proper job with benfits, company pension etc, rather than casual work/ student on a bike that you get from delivery places.
we have got this idea from the Americans, but they tip everywhere. Barbers, waiters, bartenders, hotel porters, the lot. At least that is consistent. Here we feel we should in a restaurant, but not in a pub. Rounding up to the nearest quid for drivers or barbers or in pubs just seems like such a petty amount it becomes an insult. It just causes worry and embarrassment, we need to stop.
I'm all for that
It is usually in places where the service is unlikely to be really bad, but then it won't be amazing either, which is probably why they do it.. You would feel like a right prick asking to take it off, even to be honest if they were pretty poor overall.
However chip and pin has helped avoid tipping as you can just enter it all there and not put a tip. I tell my girlfriend I have as she tells me off if I don't tip.
this place banned tipping (which as you say, is weird for america) and instead offer the servers either $10 an hour or 20% of all food sales, whichever is larger.
Brings out baskets of prawn crackers and dip as appetizers. Then stick £4 a basket on your bill at the end. Outrageous behaviour.
(some places do it with a roll and butter too). Extremely sneaky. you have every right to challenge it, even if you have eaten it, as you didn't ask for it, tyherefore are entitiled to assume it is on the house.
one place gave us sausages too. we accepted them though, as they were delicious. I did see some people saying no to the bread
The problem is i order online so much now and pay by card, and I feel a wee bit funny/ patronisigin (?) about giving them a couple of quid at the door when otherwise no money is changing hands. but I still do, apart from when taco mazama delivered and I had forgotten to look for some changes, and my 20 second scramble only yeilded about 40p in tuppences and 5ps, which I decided in the end not to give him.
I thought everyone tipped them- surely at least you rpouind up to the nearest quid, since nothing is ever like £8 on the nose.
I feel less scared of takeaway delivery drivers
where one of the delivery cars is a Nissan Juke.
Does not compute. Silly to buy or continue to own a Juke if you find yourself delivering pizzas for money.
