Pizza Delivery Driver Tip Quick Reference Chart



What about people who tip irregularly with varying amounts?

Also when I tip I always try to make sure to do it with singles so that the guy has an easier time making change if he needs to.

You can take your dog in the store all you want, as long as I get to kick it (or better yet, you) if I step in it's poo poo/piss.

If I ever own my own store, there's going to be a rule, posted on a big sign over every register, that attempting to haggle will increase the price of the item by ten percent or a dollar per time, whichever is more

You want to haggle, go to the loving flea market.

Just chill, man. No matter how hard you work, you're not going to get anything special if the CEO looks at a retail store like hundreds of others he probably looks at every year and sees it looks particularly nice.

It's seriously in our blood. I once saw something hilarious happen, where a guy just queued up outside a closed building, and within minutes, people had queued behind him. He then left, they shifted forwards, and I left before any of them worked it out.

Hey, if you're going to make poo poo up, at least don't directly copy a joke that was done by a tourist in the USSR during the Cold War.

Why don't stores just ban applying more than a certain number of coupons to a single transaction? That would shut down the extreme couponing bullshit right quick.

Sure, the store would lose their business, but who gives a poo poo? When their stuff works the store actually loses money.

But a human cashier won't let you put every weighed purchase through as onions! Think of the theft you're missing out on!

At least at the store I usually go to, there's four self checkout stations and then some guy who sits at a computer at the front that echoes all the stuff that gets scanned. So if someone says they're buying 40 pounds of onions and their cart is loaded with beer, they'll notice right away. The system also has a scale so it can tell if the thing scanned was not, in fact, an onion

I wonder if a retail store has ever pulled a fast one on Black Friday, raised prices, and then just slapped signs up everywhere advertising 50% discounts. Given how dumb your average retail shopper is, this seems like a pretty good way to rake it in

I don't know, but I did hear the guy refuse to pick up old lady poo poo, and she started screaming and cursing and calling for a manager. I had to get on with my shopping so I didn't see what happened next.

I had a grocery manager at an IGA I worked for who was loving around with a pallet jack, trying to show how difficult it is to hurt yourself as the pilot because he thought safety was dumb. He stuck his foot beneath the raised pallet, which had a couple layers of bottled water on it, to show that you have to go out of your way to get injured, and then he randomly squeezed the handle and dropped it on his foot.

When he came back from having broken his toes, he was mighty big on safety then, let me tell you. If only he wasn't the owner's little brother, he might have gotten fired for something so stupid.

There's nothing better than management suffering ironic injuries.

Is there anything for people who wear a size 16? I've looked for shoes good for standing in but most of the usual recommended poo poo (Danzo, etc) stops at 15

The guy in line in front of me at the Cub Foods was fussing with a giant cyst or something on his neck, and he popped it to the tune of sending a giant geyser of pus and blood across the conveyor belt

He then just walked out like nothing had happened, leaving the poor guy behind the register to clean it up.

(the entire rest of the line backed up en masse and went to a different register because )

The new credit cards with a chip in them are amazing litmus tests in customer stupidity. Customer slides card, new pinpads beep and say to insert chip card. I tell the customer to insert the chip end of the card in the machine, while pointing at the exact opening, and to leave it there until the register is done processing it. So the customer looks at me confused, asks why the card won't just swipe. I say because chips are the new way of paying and retailers are using it. They get visibly annoyed and jam the card in random places until finally hitting the slot. Oops, wrong end. I tell them to turn it. Correct end is inserted, but they immediately take it out, despite the me saying and the pinpad displaying "PROCESSING, DO NOT REMOVE CARD". They then get angry because the payment failed. They put it back it, hold it there, pin pad changes to "AUTHORIZING, DO NOT REMOVE CARD". Take a wild guess what gets ignored. They insert it again, and when all is done and the pinpad displays "PAYMENT COMPLETE, PLEASE REMOVE CARD" I get "so can I take out my card yet?
