Absolutely. It might not be their fault and pizza deliverypeople get paid crap not to mention they usually have to run their own cars into the ground.

Also you might want to order from them again.

Actually mostly that last point to be honest.

If you order delivery it don't matter if it shows up late since in most cases it's faster than if you made it or went to get it yourself. Stiff the poor pie spinner on his tip this time and your sure to be eating his personal pie topping next time you order.......Shocked

this is actually the first decent question ever asked on caod...

i think its best to not order pizza because when people want take out, they always think to order pizza. this means theres a lot of pizza orders during peak thus it will take longer and theres more chance of it being late.

something i have tried and its worked pretty well thus far, is to order kebabs or indian food as delivery. generaly fewer people think to order those and rather go get them personally, leaving you free to cash in on the quick and delicious foods!

One thing that all customers have to remember, if it's from a 'chain' aka not your mom and pop down the street they force the drivers to deliver in order received, EVEN at times when it makes no sense whatsoever. There are certain managers I know of that even if 3 separate orders are going to the same BUILDING they will FORCE two drivers to go with 2 on 1 and 1 with 1 JUST to fit the 'corporate' regulations. Or better yet during a time when shops needing 10 people they'd start sending personnel home JUST so the GM could get his 50k bonus per year, to hell with people getting their orders on time or drivers making a few bucks more.

It really isn't the drivers fault, it's 20% stupidty from corporate and usually 70% problems with managers from the shop you ordered from, 10% can be from your driver but most of the time don't take it out on her or him.

They don't believe in minimum wage in America, so he probably earns 3 bucks an hour.

1) Hit your pizza delivery guy in the face with a bat.
2) Take the pizza for free.
3) Tell him, "Here's a tip. Get a real job".
4) ?
5) Profit.

You appear to have misspelled prison.

As Doctor Ungabungas said in the US pizza delivery people get paid below minimum wage with the expectation that customers tips makes up the difference which is common amongst restaurant waiters as well. It's a scam pulled off by pizza franchise owners to artificially keep costs down but if you try to stick it to the man by not paying that tip "cause that's their job to deliver the pizzas why do I have to pay more?" then you just screw over a low wage employee who really needs those tips to survive. Besides it's just a couple bucks and you should really just consider it a delivery fee anyways. Take care of your delivery people and they'll take care of you, or even if they don't you'll eat your pizza with a clear conscience and the knowledge that you are a good person :)

In before off-topic-lock

Here's an idea:
1. Petition your government, and vote for people who will put a minimum wage into law.
2. Delivery drivers will be paid fairly
3. Do not tip, unless the service was exceptional
4. Profit

We do have minimum wage in America ... some industries are allowed to pay less than minimum if the worker is customarily a 'tipped employee'.

Unlike some countries where the tip is included in the over all price of the product or service.

If for example our waiters over here weren't a tipped employee ... their wage would go up drastically ... and from there ... the owners cost of labor goes up .. and the cost of service and/or product would have to go up.

Thus making it a fortune to go out and have that pint of beer Crying or Very sad

No, don't encourage ******ed policies, tell him to go get a job that pays more, if all you ****tarded Americans stopped bending over and letting your employeers **** you up the arse, then you might start getting paid a decent amount.

Oh and fun fact, we pay less for some **** in my country than you do over there, and we don't tip, AND the employee gets paid $9.54US minimum per hour, which is ****ing plenty of monies for a person to live off if they're in a full time job, or plenty to add on top of their free government money (student living costs, **** yeah) while working part time.

tl;dr America, sort your **** out.
