As far as deliveries went, I had the lowest tip average I've had at this store. We weren't terribly busy. I expected more business since the weatherMan predicted sleet (which never came). I know there's been snow other places, but I'm happy to have no precipitation whatsoever. Our lake is finally back up to normal levels, the aquifer is recharging, and I'm ready to get back to wearing flipflops.
I had two bad tippers in a row tell me to keep warm. I wanted to throw something at them. I kept their pizza warm and a couple of singles is my thanks? I could light those singles on fire for more warmth than they get me out of the electricity bill.
Pacman reported 4 tips over $7, so I guess I just got the bad luck.
Speaking of tipping higher, if your pizza isn't late yet and I call for directions, tip me better. My options when a street doesn't show up in my GPS and I didn't write down directions are:
- Wander around hoping I'm in the right neighborhood until I spot your street. Estimated time it takes: 15 min - infinity
- Call the store, wait for someone to be available, wait for someone to look up the street, locate me, get coherent directions from here to there. Estimated time: 20 min + travel time for how lost I am
- Stop and call you the instant I realize you're not in my GPS and am not yet lost. Estimated time: 5 min + normal delivery travel time
I made $33 of 8 deliveries, a tip average of $2.83 per delivery.
