The pizza place has increased liability by employing people to drive and deliver pizza. They pay additional insurance to cover the drivers and they charge that to the customers which they didn't do in the past. I didn't say the pizza place covered your husband's auto insurance.

Surely it is more difficult to haul a fridge up my front path than it is to carry a pizza up there?
Pizza Delivery are not paid full wages like movers and baristas. Movers get paid quite well actually. I don't know where you got the idea that pizza delivery are paid full wages. Also, at buffets, people pour your drinks and pick up your dirty plates. Most buffets are not completely a self-service ordeal therefore I will leave $1-$2.

I won't order pizza unless I can afford to tip the delivery person...Same goes for eating in restaurants. I won't eat out unless I can afford the price of the meal plus a tip for the server.

I don't put my brain on autopilot. I think before I do anything. I will not mindlessly tip someone well if they did not deserve it. I don't want to reinforce bad habits and provide the impression to the service industry that they can provide mediocre service and still receive 20%. It is their job to provide good service and be friendly. It's unfortunate the service industry devolved over the last 20 years to the point that servers feel entitled to tips when in the past, they worked hard to earn tips.

Food servers have to report a percentage of their sales as "tipped income." The state and IRS want to make sure they get some tax dollars for the tips that servers receive...There have been so many cut-backs through the years in stores and restaurants...Employees are spread thin these days. I don't want to short-change them...Most are super hard workers doing the best they can to try to support their families on very low wages...Sure there are "lazy" and "snotty" employees in every industry. But all in all most of the people who work in the food service industry are decent and caring people who should be paid better wages.
