HUGS! I am so sorry! Sometimes people just SUCK! ๐Ÿ™ I can’t believe someone said that to you and didn’t even tip you. 

How much more time do you have in school? I am with you on having a hard time finding a job…. its a bad time to be looking, and it just simply SUCKS! 

I hope things get better, but I know working with the public can sometimes just SUCK regardless. Just know it says more about them then it does about you! Hugs again!!!!

@amyb2012:  I waited tables in the beginning of college out of high school. I always found that the rich snobs were the worst tippers. I’m sorry they’re giving you lip, but you’re goal oriented, and will be in a job you love very soon because of your hard work.

Ugh, I’m sorry you’re going through this. People are asses. When I worked in retail I got some of this kind of crap, but wasn’t dependent on them for tips. But the, “why don’t you get a real job” really gets old. Congrats on working on your RN, though–that is awesome, and takes a lot of brains!

I am so sorry. People like that are what’s wrong with this country.

Been a waitress on and off for ten years, doing so again now, to make extra money for the wedding and such.

It’s hard, it’s demanding and people generally suck. Pray(or send out blessings in your own way), do your job fast and well. Eventually, people WILL notice. And you’ll be compensated.

@amyb2012:  I’m so sorry people are mean to you. I never order delivery, but on the occasion that I do, I tip. That’s terrible people treat u so poorly.

Awww, I’m so sorry you have to put up with that. I always tip and tip extra especially when the weathers bad. That frustrates me even more knowing they have the money to tip but feel people are less than so they won’t.

Reading your post made me sad that people could treat you so so horribly. I’ve done customer service before and there’s always those people who feel they are better than you even if they know nothing about you. I usually pity them, that they cannot see how horribly they act.

I never knew you had to pay for your own gas, btw. We only do delivery occassionally but when we do we always tip 20% like if we were at a restaurant or $5, whichever is greater. Too bad you can’t spit in their pizza!

Wow.  I had no idea you do not get reimbursed for gas!

Darling Husband is really cheap.  He throws a fit if we tip more than $1.  But I think I’m going to start insisting that we either pick it up or give a better tip.

What percentage do you recommend?

@rubyred605:  For some reason, people don’t usually go by percentages with delivery like they do in a restaurant. When I do get tipped, it’s usually around $3-4. Sometimes more if the person is generous, it’s a huge order, or I have to drive really far to their house. But anything is appreciated!

@arabesque:  Sometimes I really wish I could! And yeah, I think it depends on which company, but the one I work for does not reimburse for gas. ๐Ÿ™
