A delivery driver has claimed that a customer's $92 food order was sitting for "three hours" because they didn't leave a tip.

A content creator on TikTok - who goes by the handle @dashdropfood - shared a video of an almost $100 food order that was sitting on the pickup shelf at Panera for over two hours.

While at the restaurant, the delivery driver dropped by to pick up an order for a different customer and saw that the same order placed at 2:30PM, was still sitting there when he arrived at 5:19PM.

"When you tip your driver, you get your food delivered quicker," the driver said in the clip. "Tip your driver. Don't be a clown."

As we all know, tipping is a huge topic in the US, so understandably, many users rushed to the comment section to share their thoughts.

The majority were quick to point out that normally a tip would be given after delivery so that the amount tipped can be based on the service received.

One user wrote: "Not tipping before order is delivered. The food service is delivery, you deliver then get tipped."

Another user said: "You can hardly get what u ordered in the first place. yeaaaaaaa not tipping till I know I get what I ordered," while a third asked: "Remember when we tipped once the service was given?"

A fourth person shared their experience with tipping before delivery: "I’ve tipped my driver upon ordering and food was late and cold. I’ve also had issues with order not being delivered at all."

Meanwhile, others pointed out that they always remember to tip, and have had no such issues. One person stated: "I tip extra and always get fast service."

A second user chimed in: "I always tip in the app and I tip at least 30%. I've had no issues." And, one more person commented: "I always tip, I appreciate someone bringing my order to me when I can't or don't feel like getting it myself! Much Appreciated!!!"

Content about tipping culture regularly pops up on the video-sharing app. Recently, a woman sparked a debate after claiming that she was fired after receiving a $100 tip from a customer.

The server, Mar, took to TikTok - under the handle @ughmar -  to explain that she recently lost her job after a customer had tipped a pretty generous sum of cash.

At the restaurant she worked for, servers are required to inform the manager if they were given a tip over 40%, and it would then be put into the system for them. So, after getting a $100 tip for her service, Mar immediately took it to her manager so it could be entered into their system.

Mar was then questioned over the $100 tip, informing her employer that her manager had allowed her to take it since he didn't see any issue.

"Then I found out that the guy who paid call[ed]," Mar said, adding that the customer argued that his signature had been forged by the worker on the receipt. Mar's boss took the customer's side and ultimately fired her, she claimed.

"Even though I've never been written up, even though I'm a good employee, [and] they were literally about to make me a trainer. They sided with the guest and I'm terminated now because of it," Mar said.
