The flipside/anecdote: I over tipped a waiter and they later tipped themselves an additional $10 on a $20 meal... You guys feel bad for waitresses and waiters what about delivery people... They make even less after gas and wear and tear on their vehicle... Very few places provide drivers with a vehicle and the $1.00-$1.50 delivery charge that some places tack on to the bill isn't much. Food for thought I guess...
Having worked as a delivery driver in a past life, of that delivery charge, we very rarely saw much more than 50 cents of it if we were lucky. That charge actually hurt our tips as it went up simply because people would think that we were getting all of it so we didn't need more.
