Customer Tips Delivery Driver Slice Of Pizza And Sparks Fierce Debate
| Last updated
This is the moment a delivery driver was asked to take a slice of pizza instead of getting a more traditional monetary tip, and it's sparked something of a debate. Watch below:
In a fairly typical scene, the driver can be seen approaching the front door with a pizza box before leaning in and ringing the bell - however, at this point, he spots a note.
The message to him reads: "No money for tip, please take a slice of pizza," to which the disgruntled bloke replies: "You kidding me?"
It doesn't take the man long before he bends down, open the box and takes a slice of pizza before removing his face mask and tucking in.
It's not known when or where the footage was filmed but we're guessing it was during Covid times, since the fella is wearing a blue mask.
Not everyone was impressed by the note.
Commenting on the video, one person wrote: "No tip... then don't order."
While another wrote: "I deliver pizzas and I would be pretty annoyed. We eat free already and that's gas I just wasted for nothing."
When another TikTok user asked whether they get paid, the person replied: "Yes. I'm just saying I'd be annoyed if my tip was food I got for free already at a place I work.
"Doesn't mean I'm not making money."
A fourth user suggested it's bad to 'expect' some money, writing: "I tip the dollars I have in my wallet(ones). If I don't have any, I don't tip. Don't expect me to pay you a tip."
Another said: "Tipping a deliver driver? Why? He's literally paid to do it. And no matter what somewhere in the order you have paid for the delivery too."
Hitting back, one person pointed out: "It's sad to see how many comments are okay with not tipping.
"Some jobs in the USA depend on tips. This guy actually lost money on the delivery."
Alongside the 'get a different job' responses, someone commented: "The restaurant pays for his gas or there is already a delivery fee that pays for his gas so him getting paid to deliver pizzas does not lose him money."
Others asked whether you'd rather be a 'decent human being' or be 'cheap'... the debate is getting heated.
