Actually, most pizza delivery guys make like $4.25 while in the store and $2.25 on the road. So they get paid more even if they're slow. Servers still make $2.13 an if they're slow they still make $2.13.

Same #49, in Scotland you don't tip unless you actually want to, it's optional, and you tip for great service. But yeah, it sucks for them when the waiting staff get shit for the restaurant having set rules, or a fuck up kitchen has done somehow becomes the waiting staffs fault.

I wouldn't be surprised if they made a big fuss over nothing on purpose, so that they'd have an excuse not to tip OP well (or at all?). They probably planned it all from the start.

noberg - you dont just give customers discounts because they want them, that would make people think they can force menu items to be cheaper just by complaining. that would be a shitty way to run a business...

I hate when waiters/waitresses spit in a customers food because the customer was being rude. No you don't deserve to be treated like that, but lowering yourself to do something that may get you fired is also stupid. Plus I don't think anyone deserves to have spit in their food. Be the bigger person; they're probably miserable people anyway and they're not worth getting fired over.

It's not the OPs fault for the restaurant policy. Maybe you're privileged enough to work wherever you want but most people can't up and quit their jobs over the policies they have no control over.

15, I'm not sure where you come from, but where I live it's common practice to charge a small amount for extra sauce. Sauce costs money to make/buy so restaurants charge people for extra sauce to cover that cost.

@mistress, I'm pretty sure you're the cheap one, not the restaurant in this situation. The last time I checked things aren't free. Why should a restaurant take a hit because someone wants an excessive amount of ranch? Small things add up over time. Apparently you've never ran a business.

Every resteraunt I've gone too gives free sauce as long as you don't go overboard. Maybe it's just Colorado, but I think resteraunts who charge extra for something that should come with the meal are cheap.

what I don't understand -- they charge for ranch or barbeque sauce and the like, but not ketchup. not salt or pepper. you can get extra mayo but are charged for extra ranch....

Everywhere I've been, a portion of sauce is already included in the initial price of the dish, and is the customer wants a second, (or more), portion, then it will cost extra. 50 cents might be much for one little portion, but it adds up, soon 50 cents can become $50, just from extra sauce.

Where I live, Canada, you're rarely, if ever, charged for extra sauce. I've never been to a restaurant where you're charged for extra sauce. I understand they do it to make money, but as someone mentioned, they don't charge for ketchup either, which is weird. Glad we don't have to be charged for extra sauce here, but I do see why other places do.

I know a lot of people who own businesses, especially restaurants. My fathers family owns an investment realty company that owns a bunch of rental properties like strip malls, apartment complexes, etc. I live in one of the apartment complexes, which has an underground heated garage. Residents complain about the added 100 dollar cost. Number 1, it's an extra/not a necessity. number 2, it costs to maintain (can't even imagine the cost to heat such a massive garage). 3. They're a business, they want to make money. Another example is that one of my friend's family owns a restaurant where they hand make basically every sauce and salad dressing except for like ketchup and A1 sauce. They give a generous portion, but if people want extra they charge for extra. We don't know what kind of restaurant OP works for. if it's a good quality local restaurant who gets their ingredients locally (like my friends family does), then you shouldn't gripe. If you want extra ranch for free, go to a shitty chain restaurant.

At a restaurant that doesn't charge for extras, it's probably built into the cost from the start, whether you get it or not. Just like the "but wait, there's more" infomercials. Do you really think you're paying $19.99 for one thing and getting three more free? No. You're paying for it all, they just make it sound like you're getting a deal.
