'He's going to call the store manager and complain': 15 Pizza delivery workers share their worst tipping customer stories

After being stiffed on tips a few times, these pizza delivery drivers are fed up. There's an ongoing debate about tipping , and no one seems to know quite what the appropriate amount to tip is. It definitely depends on the service you're getting. That's why it's nice to tip a waiter who brings you your food and drinks, or a barista who makes a latte with a nice cinnamon heart on top. It seems like a good idea to tip pizza delivery folks, too. For one, pizza is usually a really cheap food, at le…

Client demands frequent updates about their truckload of onions, trucker maliciously complies: 'You want updates? I will give you all the updates'

When you get overly worked up about your job, it's important to remember it's just a job; it's not like someone's life is at stake or anything… Of course, this logic doesn't really apply if you're a Cardiothoracic surgeon in the middle of an operation because—well, someone's life is literally at stake. Other forms of employment with the same level of gravitas also need not heed this advice. Still, there's no use crying over cut onions—if you can help it… and there's no use getting overly worked…

10+ pizza delivery drivers share how their most bizarre customers got banned from the restaurant: 'His living space was a shrine of greasy cardboard'

It's remarkable how eerily similar some of these delivery tales are! Whether it's entitled customers getting frustrated about the silliest things (like not enough extra sauce) or teenagers trying to pull pranks or people getting a little too flirty with their delivery drivers, the ways in which customers can end up on a “No Delivery” list seem to fall into the same range of uncalled-for behavior. What's more surprising is how many people try to pull the same stunts over and over again and how c…

'He wanted to be the first one of the day': Entitled market owner delays trucker by 4 hours

This customer tried to get some petty payback on a company that he felt had wronged him. It didn't end well for him!

The store refuses and won't budge. The customer may get so irate that they declare, “I'm never coming back here ever again!” Here's where the two groups come into play: some of those people mean it, and…
