I bring this up tonight because I had 3 customers give me the exact (or within a penny) coin change tonight so that my tip was an even dollar amount. For example, my first customer owed $31.09. They paid $31.10 and another $4, so that my tip was $4 (and a penny). I appreciate it but really $3.91 is really just as good.
When this is NOT appreciated is when the customer pays the exact change without a tip. Our delivery charge is $2.59 and most of our menu items are priced in even dollar amounts, so I do collect an extra $0.41 on most cash deliveries (by not carrying coin change). But I had a customer pay $15.60 for their $15.59 order tonight. Really crummy.
The laugh of the night came from a female customer placing an order over the phone. She was paying by credit card and started reading me the card numbers over the phone. She started with 4 numbers, then proceeded on to start giving me letters! I stopped her, saying that credit cards don't have letters. She assured me that this one did, before stating "Oh wait I am holding it upside down!"
Totals for the night were 10.22 hours worked, 20 deliveries taken, $65 in tips, and 79 miles. Definitely my best cash night at the new location and also my biggest # of deliveries!
