I got called in to work tonight just before 10 pm. I knew something strange was up when I got the call. I was just finishing up some shopping at Toys 'R' Us.
I arrived to find out one of our veteran drivers got robbed, at gunpoint. It seems random. The delivery was legitimate, paid (tipped even), then confronted by 2 youths on his way back to his car. This was a veteran driver, neither young nor small.
So I worked 1.79 hours, took 4 deliveries, made $7, and drove 10 miles. I delivered to 2 houses and made $7. I delivered to 2 businesses and made $0.
That's right, a nurse on the 10th floor chose not to tip on a $30 order, even though I brought the pizza all the way into the hospital and up to their floor.
Then a girl working at a bar, that's right, a girl that works for tips, paid $13 for a $12.99 order. I wished I had a penny to give back to her. I was totally dumbstruck and unprepared, I don't think I've ever been stiffed at a bar before!
