He May Not Be as Friendly as He Looks

A happy pizza delivery guy makes more money than a surly pizza delivery guy. That doesn't mean he's all that pleased when faced with bad behavior or poor judgment.

  • You're passed out drunk when he arrives.
  • You take 15 minutes getting the money together and then quibble over your expired coupon.

  • You think tipping is for suckers and explain that you're not giving him a cent, but no offense, it's a matter of principle.

  • Mindy, your Doberman, is snarling, slobbering on his shoes and clearly headed for a canine meltdown.
