Nice, we don’t have Amazon Fresh here in Canada. With Instacart we also have 5 accounts so we receive lots of coupons mostly 15$ off 35$ and they keep offering us 14 day trial to remove fees, its like the 4th time I am doing the trial lol There was also a promotion for Visa cards where you get 6 months free subscription.
Actually I still have 3x 15$ off coupons now but my parents got mad at me for ordering as they prefer going out together shopping for fun, they don’t want me to replace them, they said I am removing their fun of shopping
i always tip but i feel like some food delivery apps try to rip people off by charging tons of fees then a percentage tip based off the items and fees combined. when i order groceries i have like 100-150$ of food and i usually tip $7.77 which i feel is generous considering the food is payed for with food stamps
Maybe its ok online but in person in restaurants servers will harrass you for tip as they are underpaid hourly because they are expected to receive tips. They can actually call the manager and not let you get back in that restaurant. It happened to my friend.
i dont like when i see servers or delivery drivers on social media blaming the customers for not tipping enough. go blame the employer for paying you less than a living wage and expecting you to make enough in tips to live off of.
Yeah - food service people get paid under minimum wage.
(So restaurants owners have taken advantage of this law + exploit working class and make food people work off tips. Lowest in the 90s was $2 / hour.)
That is a very different situation. Grocery delivery drivers serve a larger percentage of people who use the service as a necessity, not a convenience.
And then, also, tipping is percentage based because higher bills usually mean more work was done. A higher restaurant bill means a waiter was bringing you more food, refilling mroe drinks, etc. A higher hairdresser bill means the hairdresser did a trickier haircut. That isn’t always the correlation with grocery delivery, because picking up a $1 object takes the same effort as picking up a $40 object.
The thing that annoys me about tipping culture in the US is that people who expect tips don’t tell you that they expect a tip. I went to a hairdresser for like 4 years as an adult before I found out that tipping hairdressers is expected. I felt like a jerk for not tipping, even though nobody ever told me it was expected.
There the PayPal ipad kiosks at small businesses now everywhere - and they have a screen to fill out when you pay by credit card, and the cashier can see how much you tip. So embarrassing. Its like forced tip culture.
