I went to Kalahari this week with my family. This is an indoor waterpark and hotel in Sandusky, Ohio. On Thursday night we ordered pizza from Chet & Matt's. We got 2 large pizzas, breadsticks, and cheese sticks, for $33, which I thought was a pretty good deal.
Now anyone who orders delivery to a hotel should tip a minimum of $5. Increasing for big orders, bad weather, or delivery all the way to your room.
The order-taker told me they would bring the pizza to the front desk, and I would have to meet them there. I was planning to tip about $8.
Well I messed up. My wallet was in the room, and though I called my daughter to bring it to the lobby, we had a miscommunication and the pizza guy had to wait about 5 minutes before she found us.
He said he didn't mind, we actually struck up a conversation about P90X, which I used to drop 30 lbs last summer, and he is just getting started, hoping to add some muscle. But I felt awful, making him wait, so I gave him a $10 tip.
