    Posting names and addresses is definitely overboard. Being pissed off about the way most people tip delivery drivers is very understandable. But if he thought he'd make money delivering pizzas or whatever, he's an idiot.

    Names and especially addresses are way overboard.

    I didn't read the blog but if the dude expects more than $2 or $3 for orders $20 or under, or if he expects more than $5 or $10 for super-large orders, he is retarded. Delivery does not equal being a waiter. Deal with it.

    x a billion. Since when does a deliveryman get 15%? I admit I've never worked as a deliveryman but are deliverymen paid the lower "service personnel" minimum wage like waiters and waitresses?

    Go back to the Learning Annex and take a typing course you over-entitled douche.

    What I think is most insidious about this blog is that you only hear his side of the story. You know, if we order out and it gets there in 20 minutes, all nice and hot and the delivery person is nice, I have no problem giving between 10-15%. If it shows up 1.5 hours later and the box is ice cold? Forget the tip, unless folks in the house have the drunken munchies, it's getting sent back and the order cancelled.

    I'd feel worse about having sold off my copy of A Confederacy of Dunces if I didn't have all the blogs to remind me of all the Ignatius J. Reillys out there.

    Except anybody who has actually delivered knows that they don't.

    I tip $1 at my normal coffee place around the corner, but if I'm just getting a drip coffee from some random place, sorry, not paying for the 2 seconds of work.

    Delivery drivers get 10-15% usually though I don't get delivery all that much.

    $1 tip per coffee? Really?

    Glad I never, or rarely, get coffee out.
