Whenever my girlfriend and I get delivery I love messing with the drivers. Usually companies will leave a special box for instructions for the gate code or whatever. I always either write a novel in that box or ill write ridiculous instructions like for them to do the hokey pokey or answer trivia questions for them to get a better tip.

I just ordered a pizza and the guy should be on his way and in the special instructions box I put: Knock three times and I will ask what the password is. The password is New England Clam Chowder. Then I will ask if that is the red or the white. Its the white.

We will see how this goes.

No I don't like making their already crappy jobs any more crappier.

These people are just trying to make a honest living, why would you be a jerk to them?

If I were the delivery person I'd think twice about going to your house.

If it gets them a better tip then I guess its not to bad, but these guys do work on time and not sure they love playing your games.

Big sports night, bet those guys are swamped right now.

No those guys bust their asses, are moving all day long and usually don't get paid all that well. I bet you think you are really clever and smart, making someones day a little harder, your not.

I don't crap where I eat. Or on the person that brings me food.

I tip well and am polite.

You may think it's funny but it's probably incredibly annoying and you're not the only one that does it. Like the idiots that ask if something is free because the register can't scan it. It is not, and we've all heard that joke. Give them a break and a good tip. You might find yourself pissing off the wrong guy on the wrong day and wind up eating something nasty.

Well not sure they can tell you to go to hell for it.
They know they nicer they are the better the tip so of course they will put on the face.
Not to mention that they can get fired for being anything but nice to you.
Fake it till you make it is a very popular sales term.

Making someones day harder??? Im sorry but delivering Pizzas is not brain surgery. That job should not be hard in the first place. If delivering pizzas was hard it would pay more.

Im just trying to have some fun and get them to smile and I always do. Its not like im a jerk to them. Im always nice and thank them and tip them. Like I said they always get a kick out of it.

When the economy tanked and I lost my job, I had to deliver pizzas for a few months just to keep a roof over my head. I had a customer that kind of did the same thing. He'd give instructions like "Look for the naked guy at the community pool if I'm not in".

He was always in, he was always high as a kite and he always tipped twenty bucks. I didn't mind at all that his little messages were on a slip. Now if he'd have demanded I do the hokey pokey? He'd have been wearing a pizza.

You will never know what they really think tho...
They can't tell you that it was stupid and it made their job harder, cause they know you can then call and complain and they get in trouble, and get stiffed on the tip.

I am always polite to waiters, delivery people and flight attendants.

Telephone sales people.
Still polite but it's hard to do.

Its actually quite upsetting to see all the negative responses here on ATS. I guess when you hear negative news all day its hard to be in a good mood and not take things so serious. Like I said once and ill say again. These people are never upset about what I do. I always get positive genuine responses back from them.

Oh and BTW the guy that just dropped off my Pizza said that what I put in the instructions box made his night. He and I were laughing our butts off at it so cram it all you negative nancy's.

Tell that to the guy who has the pizzas and some big bottles of soda to deliver up 3 flights of stairs. Not everyone lives in a one family home, there are tons of apartments and not everyone is on the first floor. So these guys are doing a lot of running up and down stairs carrying things.

People trying to make a living bringing food to your house DO NOT need you to make it more Difficult or Demeaning.

Shame on you.


May your next joke be in the welfare line as you have to ask for help.

I guess delivery people can take jokes better than people on ATS.

Noted for next time only post horrible despicable things on ATS unless you want to get chewed up by people.

Ill go enjoy my pizza now.

Peace Nancy's
