The culture of tipping has long been debated across the country. Many question both the necessity and the obligation of tipping in the service industry. While some believe that tipping is necessary, others might think that the service industry should pay their workers enough to not require tipping. However, it's undeniable that not everyone can afford to tip generously. Reddit user u/Odd_Button_5437, who happens to be a DoorDash driver, shared a post on Reddit about his interaction with a customer who could not tip him in cash.

The driver shared a photo where we can see a few items along with a note. The note, titled "DoorDash Driver!!!" expressed the customer's embarrassment at not being able to tip more. It read, "I'm a firm believer in tipping well—we are just tight on cash at the moment!" The customer asks the driver to accept all the items as a replacement for a monetary tip. They have offered the driver a tin containing Pokemon cards, a Hot Wheels car and a Spider-Man plushie. The customer suggested that the driver could give the plushie to their kids or pass it on to somebody else.

They thanked the driver towards the end of the note. The customer also wrote, "You are doing great things. Have an amazing evening and keep up the good work, friend! Love you." It is signed off: "Your friendly neighborhood Door Dash orderer." Seeing the customer's heartfelt approach in making up for a tip, the driver decided to take only the note. People who read the post were very touched and shared their thoughts about the customer's gesture in the comment section. A Reddit user shared, "I still tip, but I also do a similar thing. I leave a box with a note, to tell my food delivery people (and Fedex/AMZ/UPS/USPS/etc) to help themselves. I have lots of various types of snacks, bars, water bottles, etc."

u/Training_Apple_8706 commented, "Man, that would make my day to find that. The note alone. Also would have grabbed the Pokemon cards as a bonus!" u/munchingzia pointed out, "This person was willing to let go of all three things. They didn't say just take one. That's wholesome, regardless of the tip situation. I hope they're doing alright." u/Successful_You_9035 said, "I probably would have taken that Hot Wheels car. It's a 2014 LA Fasta treasure hunt. It could be worth something! My 30-year-old son collects those treasure hunts. I'm sure he has it, though, lol."

DoorDash deliveries are everyone's favorite so when a school prohibited their students from ordering anything from the app, they came up with a unique idea. The incident was caught on camera and was shared by @fromthecounselorsdesk on TikTok. The woman revealed how one of her students had come up with a strategy to bypass the school's rule of not allowing DoorDash food deliveries. In the video, we get to see the student calling his DoorDash driver and saying, "So, you know, we can't have DoorDash food, but can you just bring the food in and just be like you, my uncle, and drop the food off in the office?" While the man is initially confused, he agrees and comes into the office, stating, "This is for my nephew." He gets cleared by the lady at the front desk and the student was able to receive his delivery.
