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.
