'If you cannot tip us, just walk to the restaurant, it makes it a whole lot easier, you don't have to use the microwave,' said Ruiz.
There have been discussions going on about the tipping culture and how delivery drivers and servers are not tipped adequately. A delivery person has now spoken out about how the apps are taking advantage of them and making sure that the no-tip orders also get delivered to their customers.
TikTok user and an experienced delivery person, Justin Ruiz, while responding to another TikTok user in a video said, "We all know as everyone says it 'no tip, no trip' but the way these platforms get around it is they will send you 2-3 orders and they will put together a tipper with a non-tipper because that's the only way they are actually gonna get their food."
Ruiz's video was in response to a comment that read: "I hate that Doordash does this. They usually have you dropping off the no-tip order first too."
He then mentioned that everyone has seen these orders in food chains sitting there for hours. "Because all the drivers understand that if you're not gonna value us, us bringing your food, why the hell will we wanna pick up your order anyways?" asks Ruiz.
He continued, "If you cannot tip us, just walk to the restaurant it makes it a whole lot easier, you don't have to use the microwave and you don't need to complain the only reason why you have to tip your delivery driver because we're bringing you your food it's not the other way."
The delivery person went on to say that the customers are not giving them a job. "We make way more money than you ever think because there are people that value us and they understand that if you wanna sit your a-- at home the least you can do is tip $2, $3 or $4," Ruiz explained.
"Nobody is saying you need to tip me $20 for one mile no you don't have to do that we just asked for a damn little bit of a tip $2, $3 or $4, and believe me you won't have a complaint," he added.
"But you all non-tippers are so entitled that nobody's picking up your food and I promise you you're gonna get cold food no matter how you think about it," Ruiz concluded.
People had mixed responses to what the delivery person shared. @tolik9262 commented, “Tip is voluntary, these gig companies need to pay their employees/drivers. I don’t get a tip for picking up electrical supplies and wiring houses.” @rachelgroves63 said, “When I use those apps I tip and somehow my food ends up cold because they have multiple deliveries and I still never take it out on the drivers.”
@tatted_breezy17 wrote, “Y’all can’t be mad at not getting tips, some people genuinely don’t have the extra to do so just enough for the order, on top of the express fees somehow.” @mommymelissa103 said, “I always tip. It's a service that I'm being provided. Just like tipping a waiter.”
