While tipping has become a highly contentious issue in the US, there is no denying that people can tip if they feel that they have been given good service. But some people either don't tip at all or give really meager amounts, which can be very frustrating for people working in the service industry. u/kytulu shared a story about how a manager stood up for his employees after they delivered a massive pizza order and were given a really small tip. The post has become quite popular on the platform, with 13K upvotes and 440 comments.

They begin the post by revealing how the story took place in the year 2000. The individual had to get a second job as a result of his wife badgering him. So, he decided to apply for the job of a pizza delivery job and got it. The man writes, "Fast-forward a couple of months, and I have settled into my mind-numbing routine of working 60-70 hours a week at two jobs." One particular day, the place where he worked was scheduled to deliver food for a big pizza party at the local homeowners' association.

He shares, "Anyway, they ordered a ton of pizza. So much so that the manager had scheduled extra kitchen staff and had them show up an hour early just for this one order. He even gave them a discount on the pizza since they ordered so much." The man and another driver had to make two trips just to deliver all the pies that were needed for the party. After they got done with delivering such a huge order, his manager asked him how much of a tip he got.

The man told him that he only got 87 cents. The manager was too stunned at hearing such a low amount and refused to believe him. When he realized that it was the truth, the manager decided to do something about it. The man called up the manager of the homeowners association, criticizing her for not tipping the drivers despite being offered a discount with such a big order. He even went to the extent of making the entire subdivision in his computer a "Do Not Deliver" zone. He writes, "He then hung up, opened the cash register, and gave each of us a $20 bill for a tip."

The post concluded with the individual stating that they had no idea if residents of the same area were able to place orders again since the incident. People on the platform appreciated the boss's gesture and shared their opinions in the comments section. u/Fanciestpony commented, "I used to work at a cash-only, fancy, sit-down pizzeria, and so many people would order bottles of wine and dessert and then be like, 'Sorry, didn't bring enough cash,' as their excuse to not tip. Glad your boss helped correct the course!" u/trey74 expressed, "I love it when you get to fire a customer or a whole neighborhood of them in this example."
