Re: Tipping

For groceries I tip based on the whole weight/volume of delivery and not bill amount.

I would definitely tip more on deliveries that include something like 2 cases of seltzer water in glass bottles. If the whole delivery is $250 bucket of caviar I'd tip 2 bucks if that.

A dude driving to your house and knocking on your door = $5 min, imo.

Re: Tipping

Wife cooked dinner (delicious carnitas tortas!), brought me a couple beers while I watched the baseball game, and cleaned up the kitchen afterwards, but I had to unload the dishwasher.

How much should she tip me?

ok, it was a lady, definitely took a few minutes to unload. So, I'm feeling good about the $10-$20 range. As a former busboy and waiter I try to go high in the range, so I went with the $20. Didnt get a great read on her reaction, she was busy, but I think she wasn't unhappy. Thanks for the responses.

Re: Tipping

$270 for no booze and very little meat? Is that two months of groceries? I don't think I could fill a whole cart and spend that much.

And if you give a $20 tip for that you should get a clear reaction from them that they are happy with it.

That is a them problem and next time with same person I cut that in half.

This.

+

A dude driving to your house and knocking on your door to deliver anything less than a refrigerator = $10 max, imo.

Refrigerator + = $20 per person that showed up to help deliver .

The correct answer to this question and what you could possibly ever hope to receive are so far apart it's best not to think about it!

Re: Tipping

20 for a grocery delivery is generous. 270 is what? 5-6 bags?
