Tips Explained

Two customers made comments tonight to explain or justify their tips. One gave me $3.56, commenting about the price of gas. Then on my last trip of the night, a woman said "Well it is Saturday night, just keep the change," leaving me with $3.91. Only thing was, by that time it was actually Sunday morning.

I drove for 7 hours, took 18 runs, drove 63 miles, and made $47 in tips.

This site is awesome! I'll be visiting very often! I've been a part time driver for about 8 years now. I've shared the frustrations that everyone else here does. Pizza delivery drivers DO deserve the money they make and probably more! Why do you think the IRS hasn't gone after drivers for their tips? It's because IT WOULDN'T BE WORTH IT!!! If drivers had to claim their mileage and tips, they could also WRITE OFF mileage at the federal rate which is around 60 cents per mile at this time (most drivers barely clear that) They could also write off maintenance and other repairs. Like I said, there's a reason the IRS isn't chasing down delivery drivers...it just wouldn't be worthwhile...so yes, we do deserve every penny!
