There are so many occupations and services in this world that people take for granted. More often that not, we forgot that these people are just like us – earning a honest living, trying to make ends meet. Fast food delivery crews are just one of them. They risked their lives on the road so that the food we ordered reached us still hot and crispy, just like it has just been taken out from the oven. So next time if you ordered home food delivery, remembering to tip the people who deliver your food because it directly affects how much they make. So when delivery people get slighted, it’s a big deal.
Here is one heartwarming story :
For one pizza delivery man in Oregon, a terrible tip turned into a heartwarming story.
Andrew Schaffer recently received a tiny tip on a $22.67 order. But instead of getting upset, the Portland resident took the $0.33 pizza delivery tip and went on his way.
The next day, Schaffer, who delivers pizzas to help pay for school, got a pleasant surprise: The couple who gave him $23, Tom and Jenn, realized they botched the math and wanted to make sure Schaffer was adequately compensated. So they handed his manager an envelope that read “To the driver who delivered our pizza last night around 9 p.m. – A thank you note.”
Inside, Schaffer found a card handed to him by his manager :
“It really made my day! Tips make up about two-thirds of my income, which pays for school for me, so I remember who tips and who doesn’t,” Schaffer wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. “The $20 was much appreciated, but the obvious time and effort put into making the card and hand delivering it meant even more.”
It just goes to show that sometimes a thank you goes a long way. So please pass this story around and inspire someone that you cared for !!! Have a great day everyone !!!
