Wednesday, August 12
In aggregate last night wasn't really that bad (I made $43 off of 10 deliveries) but one bad customer had to ruin the entire night. It was my 3rd delivery of the night. I got the door and a kid answered before I even had a chance to ring the doorbell. We stood there for a few minutes waiting for his mom to come to the door with the money. She came to the door with a 20 and 6 ones (the bill was ~$22). After she heard the total she counted out three of the ones and STUCK THEM BACK IN HER POCKET!!! leaving me with a $1 tip. So not only was she a bad tipper, but she also had to throw it in my face. For some reason I was particularly upset by this yesterday. She could have just brought $23 to the door. She could have just brought $22 to the door. Even better, she could have been a great tipper and given me all $4! My normal justification is that she obviously needs that money more than I do, but I don't think she does. I think she's just a mean spiteful person and while I know that I have to deal with those people, it doesn't make it hurt any less. At the same time I'm a little disappointed in myself for letting my feelings be hurt by a customer.
