**** FOR THE CUSTOMERS ****
Here's the real deal:
**** We are NOT employees
**** We go to the address in the app (not any other address - for safety)
**** Do NOT tip based on WHAT your total bill was. You are "tipping" based on not having to get in your car (or lack thereof) and drive, sit in traffic, all kinds of rain and heat, etc...., WAIT for YOUR order, drive back....almost get in daily accidents....I could go on for days the HAZARDS of this job.
**** Tip on the CONVENIENCE of having it hand delivered to you....without you leaving your front door
**** Tip is a misleading word. The companies get 30% or more of the restaurant bill PLUS the delivery fee. Drivers WORK for the "TIP"....This is actually our PAYCHECK. So, if you "tip" low, your order will sit.
I MEAN, THINK ABOUT IT.........WOULD YOU GO TO WORK AND SAY TO YOUR BOSS, "Hey, boss......I think I'm going to work for free today!"
No, you wouldn't.
So, don't expect us to.
And, MAKE SURE your address is correct - including gate codes, BUILDING #'s, anything you normally don't think about - but, someone coming to your place would have NO idea to see or think of.
We don't LIVE with you. We can't always find a specific location.
We wait 5 minutes. And, that's it.
If you live 4-10 miles from the restaurant, "TIP" well. $5 or $6 is not sufficient if a driver is driving 4-7 miles TO the restaurant, then 4-10 miles to YOU, and then back to an area that has restaurants to get another order. A driver can use a WHOLE gallon of gas to bring you food and they aren't going to do this for $5 or $6.
Many times, deliveries actually COST a driver money.
We don't get paid to wait. So, you are LITERALLY making us LOSE money by waiting on you to give us whatever information we may need - and, yes, there are many people (you) who don't give all information needed. Like, say, an apartment # so we can actually get your food to you. Or, a gate code. Or, the suite # that you work in.
We can't read minds.
Again, we work 95% of our paychecks on "tips". So, think about that when ordering.
It's a convenience.
