15 %

end of the zone scumbag

Submitted by CJ

Manhattan Ave. greenpoint took you 8 minutes exactly to come downstairs after two phonecalls (14 stairs in a standard american stairwell) because you don’t have a functional buzzer like everyone else in brooklyn.

corner of meserole ave. end of delivery zone - about 23 blocks from my restaurant for 4 slices of pie during prime dinnertime.  two bucks for well over a mile.  thanks for the two bucks to bust my ass because you didn’t specify your cross-street as meserole ave from street bro. not on deck. i dropped your food a few times. whoops.

I thought 20% was standard and 15% was considered a crappy tip?

A Delivery Person Saved My Life

I order delivery only when I’m at the end of my rope…stressed out, beaten down, sick as hell. When that delivery person shows up, I have at least 20% waiting for them…usually more so it rounds up to the next even dollar so we don’t have to jingle change (including food, delivery charge AND the 20%+ tip). AND, I have it counted out BEFORE the deliveryperson arrives. The way I see it, they’re saving me the run. I worked food service and it’s no walk in the park. Put me in with the “I don’t believe in tipping. I believe in OVERtipping.” group. I remember what it felt like to have someone get all generous toward me. Made me want to give the best service on earth.

Why bother

Why bother creating a blog that whines about bad tippers? Why didn’t you create a blog that praises good tippers instead? You seem to be a very angry person and I’m a little concerned about the fact you server people food for a living.

Do you really think Gothamist would have picked up a blog congratulating people?

I’m actually extremely laid back and friendly, I greet everyone with “Hey, how’s it going?” attitude.
