DoorDasher Sparks Debate Over Alleged Tree Disorder Over Tipping

One man said in a video that has now gone viral that the food he ordered through DoorDash was left in a tree outside his apartment building because of the tip he left.

The video, posted by TikTok user @i.aaron, was viewed almost 600,000 times at the time of publication as it showed a series of messages he said came from the delivery person.

One of those messages criticized the $1.50 tip @i.aaron added to the order.

The Emily Post Etiquette Institute discussed the different tipping expectations in hospitality, travel, and salon services.

When it comes specifically to meals, a customer is advised to leave a tip of 10 to 15 percent of the bill for the delivery.

The organization said, “$2 to $5 for pizza delivery, depending on the size of the order and the difficulty of the delivery.”

TikTok user @i.aaron said he received a notification that his order was delivered, but when he asked the dasher where he left the order, the delivery clerk said it was in a tree.

“Put it in the tree on the other side of my apartment complex,” @i.aaron said, showing a screenshot of the message exchange. A photo of the forage in the tree was included in the screenshot.

After @i.aaron clarified which tree the order was left in, the dasher sent several punchy messages in return.

He replied and said he was just trying to get his breakfast, to which the dasher responded in several separate messages.

Among some of the responses, the delivery clerk said, “$1.50 tip dumba**. F**k you [seriously]. I’m ready to quit this shitty job [you’re] Luckily you got your food at all.”

The dasher went on to insult @i.aaron’s order.

Although @i.aaron said he retrieved his order from the tree, he said he also received a refund.

Viewers’ opinions were divided on the matter, with some feeling that the dasher was justified in his frustration.

“For a $1.50 tip you deserve that and more,” wrote one viewer.

“I always tip at least $5, even if it’s a cheap order,” commented another viewer. “Gas is too damn much and a $1.50 tip isn’t even worth getting out of the car.”

“Idk where you are but the lowest tip I give is $6 since gas is like that in my area,” one TikTok user commented. “Even if they literally pick it up barely a mile away.”

Others, however, criticized the Dasher.

“People who say they should tip at least $5 are unrealistic,” commented one viewer.

“As someone without a car I always feel horrible just tipping 15% but I’m poor but I need to eat,” wrote another viewer. “S**t’s out of control, my tip shouldn’t be wages.”

“With the service fee and the delivery fee, it’s so expensive to tip a lot,” reads one comment.

In a follow-up video, @i.aaron said the dasher could see the order and the tip offered before accepting it.

He explained that the tip he left was what DoorDash recommended on his screen and that his tips would range from $1.50 to a maximum of $4.

“Give a five dollar tip for everything? It’s definitely crazy,” he said. “If it’s a large order, tip more, if it’s a small order, tip less.” If it is a long distance tip more, if it is a very short distance tip less.”

news week @i.aaron and DoorDash reached out for comment.

Another DoorDash customer said in a viral video that she had trouble receiving her order after leaving a $1.50 tip.

A restaurant has been criticized for a policy that reportedly only allowed new employees after two months of employment to receive tips.

One customer said in a viral video that the tipping culture was “out of control” after being asked to tip at the checkout window at a drive-thru.
