$10 tip on $1400 pizza delivery

The internets are abuzz over this receipt posted showing a ten dollar tip on almost $1500 worth of pizza. First of all, that's a lot of pizza! What would you have tipped?

  1. All in one trip ?

    Five bucks for the first 4 pizzas that come through the door, and then two dollars for every four pizzas thereafter. So if 85 pizzas were delivered (all in the same trip -- using the same gasoline), the tip should be about $45 to $50.

    1. Probably between $100-$150.

      1. Given numerous trips the delivery person(s) needed to load and unload their vehicle(s), and if they were delivered in good condition, $50.00 per person.

          Good point--I wasn't even thinking about this being a multi-person operation.

              Bet that person worked pretty hard to load and unload. Seems a bit questionable that one person delivered this considering it may have been close to 100 pizza pies..

        2. $170--$2.00 per pizza x 85 pizzas. $10.00...what the heck were they thinking?!?!!

          1. I would offer US $80 for the entire entourage to deliver that many pizzas. I would guess a dozen drivers?
