    lol I said I keep the pizza thing in car. I lived like 10-15 minutes from a town, so I would always get food on way back home, just carry food to car, get in, and throw it in in my passenger seat. It is hot as heck when I get home. Was worth it for me.

    Buy a DiGiorno pizza instead , this way you're not waiting for a lost pizza delivery person that hands you a cold and soggy pizza

    Wow, really that's the most elitist thing I have ever read on this board. Does it hurt you neck looking down your nose at people like that?

    i dont look down at people, i just personally dont like the man bun, (lets face it, you wouldnt be caught hangin out buyin a beer for the guy that you wouldnt let date your daughter) and with the years ive had in retail as well as, i have been expected a certain level of professionalism that has rubbed off onto me. if they appear lazy and greasy and shove a pizza in your face with a poor attitude, im sure you would tip less as well.

    there are 4 factors that influence a tip, whether you realize it or not. 1. your mood, 2. their presentation, 3. the bill, and 4. the expectation of a tip.

    if your not in a good mood your gonna tip less. their presentation may encourage you to tip more than you planned, or the opposite. the bill, if its a simple cheap meal, are you going to give the same percentage as you would a 10 person meal being delivered where the employee had to make 2 trips (falls back on mood; was it icy or raining? do you feel bad for the guy because he had to make a second trip?)

    as for expectation for a tip, if you pick your pizza up, do you tip the clerk? it is a form a delivery. do you tip the person at the mcdonalds window? probley not because most feel hey thats their job. the delivery guy isnt someone from the kitchen doing you and the company a favor by going out of their way not expecting a tip of graditude, they were hired to do that job. if they are hovering over your shoulder watching you, you do one of 2 things: realize they are watching, feel guilty that they expect more, and increase what you planned or, feel violated of personal space and put less. that in part has to do with mood and presentation.

    anyways i hope you dont look down at me for having my reasons that were explained and my opinions.

    I do leave tips when I pick up my food. Only a dollar or so, it's mainly for making the food. Always been a habit when picking up pizza or subs or chipotle. Never tipped a drive thru window.

    The sub place down road from me I've been eating from for over 15 years, when I got back from Afghanistan the owners of the submarine house gave me a free sub. And oddly even now I'm friends with the workers there.

    Chipotle, some of them have man buns or gauges and every time I come in they yell Alaska, it's kind of how I'm known as oddly. But there's been times when I'd get to the payout line and the manager would say, "have a good day" with no payment nessacary. But I'd leave a 20 in tip jar every once in awhile, don't like things for free.

    Anyway I digress, the reason I posted the chipotle guys is they look just like you described and have been nothing but stellar to me. I think the days of looks are becoming a thing of past, my doctor who is always professional and knows everything I swear. She wore a lower cut top one day and I followed her, saw a massive back tattoo like entire back piece, and seeing surgeons with full sleeves too now.

    Idk. I try to not judge by cover, but if they have a crap first impression, good appearance or not they suck. Fact is, our society is changing more now than ever.

    i normally dont judge either, i like tattoos and piercings if they are done tastefully. a guy with well done detailed sleeves is one thing, a guy with blotted prison sleeves and tattoos across the face is another..

    a guy like

    cool tats,

    a guy like this [​IMG]

    and your gonna wonder if he might come back without a pizza

    the man bun thing i just dont like, back in fuedal japan when the chonmage was a social status and expected to be well kept, if a samurai was captured before he could commit hari kuri, the enemy could dishonor him and his family by cutting it off. by the time it grew back the family would have known and shun him.

    now a days any that i have seen look like rats nests with hair ties,

    it all comes back to presentation
