The delivery guy called me on my cell tonight and wanted me to come down and meet him on the street and get my food

... that is 17 floors. He said he couldn't find a place to park!

I said NO. I'm paying for you to deliver my food. You want to deduct the delivery change and your tip from what I put on the bill and give me the change in cash?

He stuttered and said "Well I cant do that."

And I said, "I'm not coming down 17 floors. What do you think delivery means?"

about 90 seconds later he was at my door. Typical New York... just trying to get a piece of me. ... always some body just tryhing to get you to do it instead of them and they take whatever they can get for free.

Ass hole.

You don't need a stapler.

You think food delivery people are lazy, did you see the TV reports last year showing either a USPS, UPS or FedEX delivery guy literally throwing a large HD TV box over a fence. Of course, the TV broke. The home owner had a surveillence camera, the guy was immediately identified. What an idiotic douchebag.

I don't know about the USPS or FedEx, I understand that UPS has excellent starting salaries. A co-worker's brother starting at $50,000 and that was in 2000! Not bad money for a lazy loser who could never keep a job, of course, he quit!

What exactly is enough of a salary for a delivery person to not throw a breakable item over a fence?

We got a pizza a couple of nights ago. It was from Papa John's (I know, but my local PJ's has nice kids working there and I don't want them to lose their jobs). I walked over to pick it up and I asked them if they remembered to include the extra garlic sauce (I know, fat, cholesterol, etc.) because we like to have our own, plus my partner is just getting over the flu. The guy (not my usual cutie - must remember to never order on Sunday) said he did put the extra one in.

Got home and it wasn't there so I called them up and told them they needed to bring one over immediately. He said no, they would give me a store credit because they wouldn't send a guy with just one garlic sauce. I told them we needed two because my roommate is sick and I didn't want to get sick from sharing. I told them I didn't want to have to complain to the main office but I would. He finally agreed but said I had to come downstairs to get it. I'm on the sixth floor with an elevator and I told him no. I said I was already in my pajamas - I had changed out of my work clothes - plus we were eating and I wasn't going to go downstairs while I was eating.

He finally agreed but only after arguing with me. What has happened to customer service? He NEVER should have gotten into a discussion. He should have apologized and said he would send one right over. They have delivery guys in and out every five minutes and I'm only three blocks away.

If any worker is ever caught doing this shit to your food today they are fired or criminally charged or both. Trust me, it's not the 80s anymore and this shit is taken seriously.

And regarding the delivery guy. That's part of the delivery. They come to your door. The lazy surly New York attitude gets thrown around a lot by people who think you don't know any better but you need to call them on it. It ranges from the Spanish lady at the laundromat pretending to not know English when you need something to the brusque Asian delivery guy refusing to come to your door. I'm an extremely polite, considerate customer. But I notice, often in New York, that people will pull the "I don't speak English" card when they don't want to do something, or they attempt to bully you into coming down to retrieve your food because they think you don't know any better. You have to call these people on it. Or call their boss. It's unprofessional.

The first time I visited NYC (1999), I ordered chinese. The delivery guy came to the door with the doorman. Which I thought was odd cuz the doorman stood at the end of the hallway kinda hiding. Anyway the Asian guy gave me the order but he didn't have change for a $20. The order was around $10 or $12. He insisted I give him the entire $20 and get no change back. I shut the door and managed to scrounge up the exact amount in small bills and change. I opened the door and the doorman had moved to the door. I shoved the money in the Asian's hand and slammed the door. No tip for you!!

It might of been cheap of me to not tip $7 - 10 but I didn't appreciate how aggressive the delivery guy was insisting I give him the $20 nor did I believe he had no change.

So when in NYC, I never order delivery.

by Anonymousreply 49February 2, 2013 8:18 PM

That same thing happened to me R49. The good thing was I already had my food in my hands so I told him to go find change and come back. I slammed the door and he came back about two minutes later. Not sure if he really had it or if he went to the deli on the corner.

Do you all really think the delivery guy was purposely lazy/surly? It's the restaurant's fault for not providing mopeds for delivery, instead requiring them to drive (what I'm sure are their OWN cars.) Parking is next to impossible in NYC and the poor guy probably couldn't find a space and had to risk either getting towed or ticketed. Would the restaurant pay for that? And you know if the food was five minutes later than the quoted time you would have called to bitch that the food was late, not your problem that the guy couldn't find a place to park, is it?

So, you really got him fired, or attempted to?

On a related note, I frequent a place in Chelsea called THE DISH where most of the wait staff is friendly and fast. Except for one. Cute young trick. Drops my check off, i put the money in the folder and he refuses to come back and pick it up. For the record, the rest of the servers do bring the check up to the chashier and return with the change. So I don't tip him. If he's too lazy to take my check to the counter then i'm too lazy to go back to my table and leave a tip. And he's not busy. He stands around bs'ing.

They are tiny. It's hardly worth sharing them. They make many deliveries to our neighborhood every evening. They just had to give it to one of the guys who was coming this way.

We order pizza maybe once a month. Why should we not get what we wanted and paid for, especially considering I asked if he had included it and he said he had.

I am not the OP, but the same thing happened to me (in Philly) about six months ago. The delivery guy just wouldn't come up. I told him to go fuck himself and leave. I shrugged off the charge and called another place where there has never been a problem.

Two weeks ago I called the old place and a guy rather than the usual women answered the phone. They had my phone number and info on the computer and he asked me where I had been. I told him about the delivery guy who wouldn't come up and that was it for them -- except I had a hankering for their wings that particular night.

"We fired him," the guy said, "we had too many complaints about that; unless the security people stop them, they are supposed to go to the apartment door." And so it has been, both times I've called since (hastening my death for sure but their stuff is delizioso and yes, this is a first world problem, absolutely).
