$1 tip per coffee? Really?

Glad I never, or rarely, get coffee out.

He describes his Tumblr site, which launched a few days ago, as "a blog documenting people, and companies who have never seemed to work in the service industry, or don’t think to tip at least 15% on deliveries, and instead opt for 2 dollars on everything. This is for all the people who have been handed $80 on a $78 order and told 'keep the change.' Thanks ass-hole." Reached by phone, Fox tells us, "I just got tired of all these big companies, these TV shows and movie sets giving us two or three dollar tips on a $90 order. The excuse is that 'we can't tip because that's what corporate says' is wrong. I find it disrespectful. And I wanted to make people aware of that."
Why is that a problem? Does it make any difference in his day if he's bringing one bag to a delivery or four? Either way, you drove the same distance, did the same work. I had a delivery guy call me a "fucking cheap bastard" when I tipped him $3 something on a $36 something sushi delivery. I called the restaurant and told them what happened and that I would not order from them again. Fuck that guy, you didn't wait on me, bringing me refills, answering my questions, making sure I was comfortable during my meal. You didn't make my meal personally. You picked up a bag from the counter, put my address in your gps and drove 1.5 miles to my house. In my opinion, tips should be given when a service is provided and it is of a quality better than what was expected. I understand in some industries (restaurant namely) people rely on tips to make a living, and I will tip minimum 15%. Usually 20% unless something bad happened with the meal. But why the hell are their tip jars on every check out counter? Should I be tipping the check out lady at the grocery store because she rang up my items? edit: seems that this guy got fired from his delivery job for starting that blog. good.

Agree^^. I don't drink coffee but if I did, and order from a Starbucks, etc, why would I tip them? I don't tip the person at Burger King!

Glad he got fired. What kind of moron doesn't realize that publishing names and addresses of customers with defamatory statements is going to get you shitcanned? I'm almost surprised it is not somehow illegal in new york.

Also glad that a bunch of sources ran this story...now when they google him for another service industry job, he is going to have some explaining to do.

We need to stop all this tipping nonsense.

I kinda feel for the guy, from what I've heard, around here delivery people make the $2.xx an hour minimum, and rely on the tips to make up the difference, plus gas/ insurance etc.

I'm cheap so I just pick up my food when I eat out.


In college I helped organize some of the massive amounts of free food drug companies order form doctors and nurses.
Usually hundreds of dollars at a time, with multiple trips for the delivery guy, tip would usually be $15-$100 based on how much food was ordered.

i'm not bothered by this. as someone mentioned earlier, delivery is much needed and under-appreciated. people who want to cheap out on this don't know what they're talking about, or never done a mile in the other guys' shoes. delivery sucks and is a pain in the ass. waiting tables sucks too, and people cheap out on that just as often. stay in school for sure. i delivered when i was in school, to help pay for school. i graduated, got a reasonable paying job. quit the job, going back for graduate school. waiting tables (now) to help pay for it. that's how you do it on your own (that, and loans). be nice to your delivery guys. be nice to your waiters. if you can't afford a tip then you can't be affording to eat out. not all delivery guys or waiters are stupid, or uneducated either. and everyone has rent to pay.
