We live far enough away from most of the restaurants, a 10-15 minute ride after the food has been sitting and waiting to be picked up, it would likely get cold.
There is only 1 thing i have delivered and that's pizza. There's only 1 place I order from and I get a Grandma's Pie which is fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, garlic and basil, sheet style.
The pizza bags/warmers most places use, they do keep the pizzas pretty hot.
My total is usually about $20 and I always give $10 to the driver on top.
I order about once a week when the NFL is on, every 2-3 weeks in the off season.
I live in an area where GPS does not work, not easy to find me
We don't eat out as much as we used to
I tip hard at the bars with servers and bartenders I know and have waited on me many times
It's not that hard to pour Whiskey or Tequila, neat.
On a $50 bar tab, usually I leave a $20 bill, even I pay on a card, I leave cash for the bartender, it goes in their pocket and they remember you the next time.
It's not so much that I get free drinks and heavy pours, I just appreciate good service and want the bartender to be in a relatively good mood while I'm there.
I used to tip $2-$3 back in the 90s, I remember when it went to $5 or I felt comfortable giving that.
Gas prices, a pandemic, guilt that i didn't have to drive 25-30 minutes round trip, $10 seems like an easy way to get out of lifting a finger
