Next time Chloe Teply orders a pizza maybe she'll budget a few extra dollars to tip the delivery driver.

Teply learned the hard way delivery men don't like being stiffed when a Des Moines, Iowa, Pizza Hut employee urinated on her doorstep in retribution for the denied tip.

'It's just one of those things where unfortunately, I don't have the money,' Teply told KCRG.

She forgot about it the delivery until a few hours later when she opened the door and saw a yellow puddle.

'I was like 'Hmmm who was at my door that might be upset with me' and it kind of hit me that it was the pizza delivery guy,' she said.

Take the pizza box, fill i with rocks, and go back and fling it through the bastards windshield. Tit-for-tat. It is the only thing they understand.

Sorry, but this is the kind of uncivil act that I expect today from our young people. Wonder why they can’t get better jobs?

This is our upcoming government officials in 30 years or so.

It’s really rude to not tip people who live on tips!

But this is a lesson in humanism. Two wrongs always makes for right if it makes you feeeeeel good.

With the lack of morals and self control in this generation, it will become dangerous to eat out.

Maybe he was just marking his territory to keep the other delivery services away. Wolves do that.

I worked as a pizza delivery driver for several years. This unprofessional conduct is shameful. There’s no excuse for it. I don’t care if they didn’t get a tip.

No what sucks is a business model where I have to bribe your employees to get crappy service.

If you can’t factor a living wage into your product maybe you should close your doors.

I worked in a dirty crappy back busting job for years and nobody ever offered me a tip.

How freakin hard is it to make me a five dollar cup of coffee ! Tip Jar my A$$

Give me a break, if you don’t have the money go get the pizza yourself!

My wife will call in a pizza and then go and get it, it saves on the pizza and no tip needed.

Lazy if you ask me.

I don’t blame her, I never tip delivery people, Pizza or otherwise. I got a pizza delivery man fired for leaving a nasty note in my mail box. I happened to know the owner personally and told him about it. That driver never delivered another pizza for that company or any other that I know of. Why in the world people think you should tip someone who is paid to do their job is beyond me, and I feel the same way about tipping waiters and waitresses.

Agree in part. Tips are NOT an entitlement. But I tip heavy wherever I eat, and particularly to pizza delivery guys.

A number of years ago I was going through MIA on my way to a flight. A luggage handler walked up and asked if he could assist, to which I said yes.

When we got to the counter I realized I did not have any bills, so I dug into my pocket and gave him a couple of bucks in change. (Generally at that time this was the standard “tip”.) (I will not tell you what part of town he was from, but they were all union.)

He muttered an obscene oath and threw the change on the ground at my feet (which a number of astonished bystanders noted).

From then on I have always carried my own luggage. If they think this advances them, they are extraordinarily stupid.

Uh, no they don’t. I don’t know where you get your information or what state you live in.

Delivery drivers are paid minimum wage at least and places like PH, Dominoes, etc. pay them a small price per delivery - usually around .55 to $1.00.

Tips are a plus. In the late 1970’s and early 1980’s no one tipped delivery drivers. I drove for and managed the biggest PH delivery store in a college town. We kept a list of address in the back of places that did tip because it was rare. But then in those days pizza cost a lot more than today. A large, deep pan Supreme would run you $22 or more.

If they only made tips today there wouldn’t be any since you, on average, only deliver about 4-5 per hour even in a 2 mile radius delivery zone.

Remins me of the time a few years ago when I found a wallet while riding my bike on a countryside road here in Japan . Filled with credit cards and about 800 dollars in it . Researched the woman’s phone # from her address on her license and called her up . What was my reward ? An $ 8 sponge cake .

The standard when I worked was this.

20 deliveries a day.

4 dollars base delivery fee + tips.

Average driving distance was 50 miles a day.

Average tips were about 2 dollars per delivery, so we made about 120 dollars in an 8 hour day. so roughly 12 dollars an hour.

You are wrong. My son worked as a delivery driver for Pizza Hutt last year and he only received tips. The ‘delivery charge’ goes to Pizza Hutt and pays for the insurance for the drivers, that’s it.

If a driver receives NO tips during their shift, they can collect an hourly wage, but that never happens. If you get ONE tip, that negates that option.

As for tipping a waitress... I worked for $2.60 an hour as a waitress.

Why?

Because they assume you’ll make up the difference in TIPS.

People who don’t tip are garbage.

Waiters and waitress are different. In my opinion the laws should be changed and employers should be forced to pay them minimum wage. People don’t tip the wait staff like they ought to and at times the staff may not deserve it. So just pay them minimum wage and anything after that is a bonus.

I delivered Chinese food in 1965. I was paid minimum wage of about $1.30 per hour plus tips. The tips would generally make up about one third of my total pay.

You get to be pretty good at fumbling with change in order to maximize tips. You carry a lot of one dollar bills. You don't want to hand a customer 35 cents plus a five dollar bill in change unless you really want a 35 cent tip.

The total purchase price was key to getting a good tip.

It was terrible if the total bill was $9.35. You're getting a 65 cent tip. Much better if the bill was $8.70. Then you got $1.30, twice as much.

ez said: "I give delivery drivers 10%."

The take-out place I worked for delivered to a wide area in the mid San Francisco peninsula. Some deliveries might take about eight minutes; some closer to 25 minutes.

Sometimes the orders would be for just a couple of menu items, totaling perhaps $5 or less. A large order might get up to about $25 dollars for dinner for four.

Using your formula, small orders to a distant customer might net about $1 per hour in tips. Large orders to close customers could earn $27.50 per hour in tips.

I would suggest that you look at what percentage of his income your tip makes up. It should probably be between 50 to 100 percent of his wage, taking into accound how much of his time you have used. The actual value of the item delivered is probably not very relevant.

Actually located in East Palo Alto. The delivery area was pretty prosperous and eventually became Silicon Valley.

Are you implying that take-out delivery drivers in other areas throughout the U.S. would not have received tips? If so, that is not something that I was aware of at the time. Being just 16, I was just happy to get the extra money.

It was just a summer job. During the school year I spent all that time studying.

The business was a take-out and delivery operation run by a husband and wife. They had no sit-down area and opened for business at 4pm as I recall. On the busier nights they had two of us delivery drivers. We peeled shrimp, cleaned vegetables, and washed pots and pans between deliveries.

The two delivery vehicles were the Chinese couple's own cars.

George and Doris were good to me and I tried to do my best for them. I really hated to leave them at the end of summer. It was a great learning experience.

Anyone who is loud and proud of not tipping waiters and delivery boys and goes out of his way to get a kid fired has no soul and probably has other problems.

In a word, he is an A$$.

A Pizza from Costco is only $10.00... and it is pretty darn good...

Why would anyone want to pay $25.00 to $30.00 for a comparable pizza plus a tip?

Jacquerie said: "In a word, he is an A$$."

Are you assuming that the kid did nothing whatever to deserve his treatment. Do you think a rude waitress deserves a tip?

I had a waitress accidently spill an entire milkshake into my lap. Did she deserve a tip? Perhaps it was not her fault and perhaps she didn't deserve to be fired, but I certainly didn't feel well served.

Perhaps the pizza customer said, "wait just a minute", so she could get proper change. Perhaps the delivery kid said, "well hurry up. I have other deliveries to make."

There could have been many reasons not to tip somebody who behaves in an immature manner. Certainly leaving a rude note was immature.

Further, you seem to be assuming that the delivery kid had no background of other misbehavior. Most employers are not anxious to have to go through the hiring process. If all your employees are competent, you should be thankful. Hiring somebody new is fraught with risks.

If the employer was justified in firing the delivery kid, why are you blaming the customer for bringing such important information to light? Is it your opinion that NOBODY ever deserves to be fired?

Could you elaborate on that? I'm not sure what you are getting at.

If you disagree with me and believe that a waitress who spills food in a customer's lap deserves a tip, you should just say so.

If you disagree with me and believe that the pizza delivery person couldn't possibly deserve firing, you should just say so.

If you disagree with me and believe that customers should not report rude behavior of employees to their employers, you should just say so.

By attempting to demean me, you simply belittle yourself.
