Should You 'Pre-Tip' For Delivery?

The Lempert Report

Another concern that I have is this stupid, stupid, stupid, STUPID deal that DoorDash has now done, where, when you order from Doordash and you don't tip, a little pop-up comes up saying that Dashers can pick and choose which orders they want to do. Orders that take longer to be accepted by Dashers tend to result in slower delivery, so you have a better tip, I think. First of all, I think tipping has gotten way out of hand in this country. We talked some years ago, when all the coffee bars started putting up tip jars, where these employees were not getting the proper wages, so they had to rely on tips. It's getting out of hand and in fact, there was a survey done by Bankrate that found that Americans are tipping less frequently than they did a year ago. 50% of respondents said they always tip their food delivery drivers in 2023, which is down from 57% in 2022, 59% in 2021, 7% of respondents said they never tip delivery drivers, 18% said they do only sometimes.
