Saw on the news a video clip of a Door Dash Driver deliver food and mentioned to the person they had not tiped on the App  . The Door Dash Driver tells the lady I put a note in your bag. The note  said " you're lucky I din't touch your food, next time you might think abt tipping on the App " 

 

 Have never used Door Dash  services and this makes me think , I probably won't.

Unfortunately, these drivers are often hired in these low-paying jobs because the employer tells them they'll "make a ton of money in tips" and so expectations are set too high.

I have always understood that the tip is not included on an app or debit/credit card because it has to be reported on their income tax. I once had a pedicure and there was a huge sign saying please tip in cash only.

@skatting44    Totally wrong of the Door Dash Driver to tell that to the lady.  Having said that, the drivers who deliver these food services  are working and depending on tips just like waiters and waitresses, bartenders, etc.  It was wrong of the woman to not tip.   

 

My nephew did Door Dash to afford expenses at college.  They are paid very little by the company and depend on tips.  Don't forget, they're also using their own vehicle and gas to provide this service as well.

 Maybe, but that doesn't call for a veiled threat.

That kinda of publicity is unfortunate, but it's not a normal occurrence.  I can't imagine not tipping a person who buys his own gas and takes his time to bring somitting to you.

I would never NOT tip a driver who delivered groceries or food to my house. What do people think that the delivery drivers are doing this out of the goodness of their heart?  People need to make a living even delivery drivers.

@lgfan.  I order occasionally from GrubHub and it is on the app, although you can change it.  It's also on the Walmart delivery app.

When we order on line thru a restaurant website never a service we always include a tip on the order

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

My nephew said the tip is 95% of the time included on the app and rarely is it ever done in cash.  It sounds like this lady added a tip on the app to make sure a driver would pick up the order, but when the order got delivered she didn't include it.  Sounds like she purposely stiffed the guy.
