OK so, this guy picks up a Pizza off the counter, puts it into a holding bag, jumps into his car, drives to your house, rings your doorbell and hands you a cold pizza. Now for this action he gets a 50% tip for a $10 order or a 25% tip for a $20 order, based on a $5 tip. It's not like he had to jump on a horse and ride through wind and rain hitting him in the face while dust gets sucked into his nose....
Now, stop in a burger joint with table service, or maybe a diner. The total bill comes to $20, 15% tip gives the server $3.........
Lets see what the server did this for $3 or a 15% tip
The Food service Server:
1...Said hello my name is Chewy, I'll be your server today
2... gives menu and Takes drink order.
3.... comes back with drink order after being sexual harassed by the bartender.
3...Comes back for your food order, I need more time,How much time can I need its a freaking burger joint.
4 ... server comes back,.takes my order and gets asked why I have to pay an extra $1 for a .10 cent slice of cheese. Server rolls eyes, takes order
5....server comes back and asks if you would like refills on pop, my wife asks for extra napkins knowing her husband will drip burger juices all over his shirt..
6... The server comes back with the refills, tells customers that the food will be up in a minute. The serve knows the cooks are a bunch of aholes, they are screwing off in the kitchen and the server gets blamed for their being slow with the food order.
7...The food is ready, gets picked up by the server, they stick a ketchup btl in their pocket (This isn't Louis Lunch) and asks who's the big shot that has the burger with the high price extra slice of cheese on their burger. I raise my hand, it's mine, my wife rolls her eyes knowing she made a mistake 35 yrs ago. Server tells us to have a good meal, and asks if there is anything else we may need..
8.... Server comes back, asks how every is, I say, the burger is well done and I ordered it Medium Rare. The serve looks concerned and asks if she can get me another one. I say No thats ok, I'll just suffer through this brick on a bun, the cheese is the best part of the burger. My wife says her meal is fine, she rolls her eyes at me saying, I told you to order the chicken sandwich.
9.. The waitress comes back, asks if we would like anything else, tells us about the 4 layer chocolate cake that is 4000 calories for dessert. I say, do I look like I need dessert, both her and my wife agree that I don't...the server says they will be the cashier and walks away.
10....Server comes back picks up the money and returns with the change, all in $1 bills..
11....Me, being a big spender, take the receipt and see the food bill is $20. Well, the server did a good job, although my burger was well done. Being the high roller I am, I guess it was worth a nice 15% Tip. On my way out I hand her $3 and tell her the service was great, thanks .....
All this for $3..............and the Pizza guy gets a 25% to 50%.........I guess that was a bunch of work sitting in the car with the radio blasting to bring the pizza to the door.............I don't tip the pizza person.....We go pick up New York Pizza, why eat cold junk, when you can eat the best.
