Here's A Tip
A DMK Production

Your son, Mitch, is twelve.  You and your significant other go out every Friday night.  You used to hire a sitter for Mitch but he talked to you and you agreed to allow him to stay home alone now that he was older.  The arrangement seems to be working well.  You always leave money for Mitch to order a pizza along with fie dollars as a top for the driver.

Mitch - 12

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

You are out shopping and Mitch goes with you and you notice he buys a video game he has been wanting.  You know how much the game costs and you know how much Mitch's allowance is and it doesn't seem to work out that he could have saved enough money to buy the game. You ask Mitch how he worked out paying for the game and he lets it slip that, for the past five weeks, he has been keeping the pizza tip money for himself and not giving it to the driver.

What do you do?

I'm taking the money. I'm going to explain to him that we tip for service and then I'm going to wear out his behind.

I'm going to explain we tip for service. I'm also going to explain that taking my money for one purpose and using it for another is theft. And finally I'm going to explain that he is clearly not old enough to stay home by himself (legally, a kid is supposed to be 14). If he seems appropriately contrite, we're done. If he argues about it, he's getting spanked.

As a part time publican (=bar owner) I can understand why and how a 12 y.o. won't understand the system and significance of tips. As a fact, a significant part of 18+ customers don't understand that. I can only blame myself for not explaining the basics of customer service to him. So, as hard as it is, it's just a talk. Cool

I'll explain to him that although the cost of delivery is included in the price of the pizza that it is the practice in the catering trade for employers to pay inadequate salaries to their workers in the expectation that customers tips will make their remuneration up to a living wage.

Also that in the US the taxman also expects a level of income from this source and that by not passing over the tip he is robbing the driver on two fronts.

Then he can drop his pants to clear the slate.

I'm not au fait with US pizza prices but a $5 tip on what I presume would be about a $20 order seems rather generous. I can sort of understand why Mitch felt tempted, but at the very least he should have split it in half!

I can see the 'theft' argument, although don't entirely go along with it.

I think a medium spanking is in order rather than a large.

A better system than tipping for good service would be whacking the delivery boy for bad service. Cool

What really bothers me about this is that the scenario makes it sound like I made it clear what the $5 was for (yeah, that seems generous to me as well for one pie, but it probably depends on where you are). I'm going to ask him why he thought that was okay, and I'll make it clear it's not okay (rather like keeping change from money I gave him to go to the store). I won't spank, but he's not buying the game either.

I'm not au fait wit the US system for Tipping for pizza deliveries but it is clear that my lad has misappropriated my money and will be spanked for that. If it happens again I'll be hiing a babysitter again. Must admit 12 does seem young to be home alone
