Tip everyone you tip in cash.

Waiters, uber drivers, grubhub drivers, whatever, tip all in cash. Otherwise it's either something like this (where it all goes to the company) or it's put into a pool for all the workers to get to and taxed and getting tip money taxed is the worst.

From all the bartenders/servers out there: Thanks, we appreciate it. You're the best.

Love,

I always tip in ca$h NEVER put a tip on a card because of the "pool" bullshit and it's recorded as income. Also, unless your server was a complete retard always tip well. The restaurant I go to a lot I get GREAT service because I take care of my servers and cash is a big reason.

From a former waitor, stop tipping. It's a system that needs to die. People should just be paid by their employeer. Tips only give industries an excuse to lobbey for minimum wage exceptions. $13 an hour is reasonable for a deliverer. The dishonesty is grubhub calling it a tip when it's not. So stop feeding into the system.

Now for dinning because that's the only way people make money you really are screwing someone over if you don't tip. So the fact that it is a flawed system should be disconsidered in favor of treating an individual fairly. Everywhere else it is not absolutely manditory stop!

Maybe it's the former economics major in me that thinks tipping is absolutely retarded. There's no price equilibrium. It's just arbitary and retarded.

Also patronize your local tipless resturant. A few areas have them.

This is what drove me to post this. Great comment.

I do not understand why people use those apps, how anyone can be so lazy to not search the phone number of a place you want your food from and call them directly, its cheaper and they deliver quicker this way

One reason: Fat people. They're too ashamed of what they are to call directly, so the internet or apps are the best way to order a large family pizza with extra mayo and fries without actually having to spell it out. Psychologically, there's a big difference between hitting a few buttons to order something and saying "I want to eat this".

Ok I will, but most of these services make the employee a independent contractor so I doubt anything will come of it.

Interesting. I've used BiteSquad a few times, another issue is getting quality food in the first place. For example a cheeseburger and fries is a bad idea. There is a strong chance the items will arrive soggy and shitty because the restaurant processes the order right away and let it sit around. Other times, they don't process the order and it is a burden to the driver in that they have to sit there and wait.

At the point of sale (the app), you've already been enticed to apply the tip without knowing the quality of the product. I would stick to pastas and items that can hold their own for more than 20 minutes.

I did order in Minneapolis a couple times, specifically Barrio, and it was ok. But significantly less quality than having just walked 8 blocks to eat it fresh.

Thanks for the note about the tipping. Seems like if a restaurant doesn't offer delivery directly it's probably not worth the abstraction for the average foodie unless you're limited by mobility reasons or it's a sure shot deliverable product (pasta & sushi come to mind).

When I used to deliver pizza on a Friday night raking in $8-9/hr + $100 in tips was very possible on just a 5-hour stretch (and obviously nobody reports their tips).

I always hating making orders of fried calimari that were destined to sit in a to go box for 20-30 minutes while they turned to shit. Why the fuck anyone would actually order that to be delivered is beyond me.

Do not under any circumstances tip, ever, to anyone. The food industry has a sweet scam going in which they don't pay their employees enough, and then make the customers feel bad about it. Seriously, in any industry a company that can't pay its staff shouldn't be in business.

If you signed up for $13 an hour guaranteed, don't be mad because you're not making $18 an hour.

It's not that I wanted the tip money when I worked there, I just don't want it going to those shit companies so they don't have to pay shit for labor.

Fair enough, but tipping in a restaurant is nearly the same, they just have a minimum wage that is so low they hit that point every shift
