    Next question: how much do you tip your barber?

    Give those guys cash if you can, don't count on anything given through the app. They are always screwing people somehow or another from what I have read.

    The key is if if there is a delivery fee. If there is, that usually means the driver is getting more than minimum wage. If not, then they likely are only getting that.

    If there isn’t, I always start with a $5 tip and go up from there, depending on the details. If there is, I start at $2 and go up from there.
    The driver basically never sees that delivery fee, most of the chain places will tell you that in the fine print too.

    You’re the third person to bring this up.

    To clarify, I didn’t say the driver gets the delivery fee. They don’t. But usually, places with a delivery fee pay the driver more than minimum wage. Not always, but usually.

    I wouldn’t really say that’s true either. I’ve delivered for Papa John’s, Dominos, and Snappy Tomato here in Cincinnati, and they all have delivery fees, and none of them paid anything more than minimum wage.

    Re: How much to tip the pizza delivery guy

    If you want to tip $3 instead of $6, just do it. Guesstimating that a delivery fee covers the $2-3 you prefer to hold on to feels silly.

    I think it's similar to walking past someone asking for change on the street. It's your decision not to give them anything. "Well, I would give but the statistics show that often times they aren't even homeless/they will use the money for alcohol or drugs/they actually make a lot of money..." feels like a silly waste of brain energy for something that's in your right to simply decline to do.

    Interesting, I’ll keep that in mind. I rarely ever carry cash though.

    I go to a chain (SportsClips) and do $3
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    As a customer, I am paying for delivery if they're charging me so if the driver isn't getting any of that then that's a problem on their end

    Re: How much to tip the pizza delivery guy

    Worked at Domino's for 6 months in college. There was a $1 delivery charge that the drivers made on every delivery. As long as someone tipped $2 I was happy (this was in the mid 2000s for inflation reference). The worst were the people who would stiff you entirely even if you delivered it on time. We had some regulars who never tipped (see Sea Ray) and we always dreaded those calls coming in.

    I always tip $5 at a minimum.

    My barber and I went to high school together. I get a hot towel and straight razor shave along with my cut for $25 and I tip her a $10 spot.

    Re: How much to tip the pizza delivery guy

    In my opinion, $5 tip for Pizza - $5 tip for barber - try to pay that in cash if you can.
