The practice of Tipping service workers is quite prevalent in the US, but continues to be hotly debated. How much do you tip a delivery girl or gal? Some even question the premise of tipping: Why even tip when the delivery service includes a service fee?
A video that has gone viral shows a pizza delivery guy taking a slice out of a box of Pizza after he was refused monetary tips.
In the short youtube video recorded from a door-camera, one can clearly see a pizza delivery guy finding a sign that says, “No money for tip, please take a slice of pizza instead.” He then goes on to remove a mask and bite into a slice grabbed from the box.
The digirati on the web are divided over customer’s refusal to give a monetary. Some wondered why even order a pizza if you can’t afford a tip for the delivery guy.
Not all patrons are as frugal as the one in this story. Many delivery guys claim they are able to sustain themselves on such minimum wage jobs due to the tips they receive from generous patrons like these stories show
