Delivery driver: "No tip, no groceries!"

Delivery driver: "No tip, no groceries!"

Do you tip the delivery driver?

Ordering groceries online is something that has made people's lives much easier over the years. 

But with many of our retailers, the tip for the driver isn't mandatory because the drivers work for the retailer and get paid. Of course, a tip is always welcomed. 

However, it seems that some people are not able to or prefer not to tip. 

We have to admit that we have seen our fair share of videos where delivery drivers end up eating their customer's orders or worse. 

This time we saw a driver, in the US, take the groceries back to the grocery store because the customer refused to tip her.

The reaction from people in the comments was mixed. 

Many siding with the delivery driver, while some saying that the company should cover the tip. 

What do you think?
