you are completely punishing the driver. I get paid per mile which makes that $3 delivery charge our average mile per delivery. No matter how far or close your delivery is, that gets added on. I may or may not see any part of that. The delivery charge is for the convenience of you not having to get up and drive to the store. Its fucking shipping and handling. You not tipping means i have to rely on my $0.54 per mile and $4.1 per hour and that barely cuts it when ive got college, car parts, gas, and everything else to pay for so i can live my fucking life.

I was already paying extra for the convenience of delivery in the form of a tip. Really not my problem. You should be complaining to your corporate office about that shit, not telling me I'm punishing you.

In my experience, not vast mind you, but the two places I delivered at, one used company cars and had a seventy cent delivery fee which went to maintaining the company cars, the other place the drivers used their own cars and the $1.50 delivery went into the driver's pocket at the end of the night for their own vehicle's maintenance. I'm not sure how it works in other places but the delivery fees were moreso an acknowledgement and payment of means of conveyance, since by ordering delivery you're making someone else consume resources other than those used in the production of your food it would be silly to reflect that in the overall cost of the food.
The gratuity is just that, gratuity, it has to do with more than just your convenience, it's the service supplied, delivery business more than doubles on rainy days, during snow storms people who are scared to drive themselves order delivery, carrying a stack of pizza up apartments stairs on a hundred plus degree day. not saying this is every case but there are factors which apply to services, negative as well, some delivery people are just shit, many service people in general really, feel they are inconvenience by the customers whose business funds their employ, feel they are entitled to a big tip just for "dealing with" work.
But let's be honest, it's much less about the "corporate" aspect and far more about the "supposed to pay" aspect, it is wholly up to you whether or not you want to tip, just know that even a polite driver would rather not hear you explain why you're not tipping them, when I brought someone their food and they were friendly back to me but didn't tip I just figured they'd rather not for one reason or another, maybe they're short on cash or maybe they've decided they won't tip no matter how good the service is, wasn't my business. But also know that if you're spending so much on food to be brought to your home that you're reluctant to spare a few for not even good service, maybe you should be better budgeting your food monies.

I don't explain anything to the driver. If one made a fuss about it, I would though. And the fees here are $3 standard, not 70 cents or 1.50. Expecting me to pay an extra $6 (assuming I tip) on a pizza that's 12 dollars is stupid plus the places near me charge more for pizzas when you don't pick them up. Like, separate from the delivery fee, the pizza just costs more for no reason. By the end of it I'm paying almost double and it's retarded.

I don't know what to tell you, not trying to sound smug, but gratuity aside, if the extra charges for not having to go get it yourself are too much, maybe just go get it yourself.

It's not a matter costing more, it's a matter of how disproportionately they charge. I feel stupid saying it's a matter of principle but I don't double the price of the work I do for people because they ask me for 10 minutes of extra labor and I'm sure as shit not going to pay for the same. Both places I order from are down the street from me. I could go there and get a pizza for 9 bucks but if I order it now it's magically 15 plus they want a tip? Fuck right off. I order pizza when I don't feel like cooking but I don't want to leave the house. Since they introduced that skewed pricing and delivery fee bullshit, I just stopped ordering pizza. I only got the pizza because they were the only ones that delivered. If I'm now forced to leave the house to buy food anyway, I'm going to get actual food, not some shitty grease disk.

Most places don't have a reasonable way to implement a means with which to calculate proportionate price to distance, so I'm sorry to say you're gonna pay the same as someone who lives further away, so you can either pay the price they're asking, go and get the pizza yourself, or maybe hit up a local grocer for some fruits and veggies.
Seems more like your beef is more with exercise than economics.

I get in shitty moods and I don't want to leave my house or interact with people. Ordering online was a good way around that for when I got in those moods. With the new pricing though, if I were to order it I'd not only be depressed out of my mind but fiscally irresponsible seeing as those moods last weeks at times.

Employer has to make up the the difference if the employee does not gain the enough tips to reach the minimum wage. So it really is not his problem.

That's really not my problem. I tipped for delivery when I wasn't being charged for delivery. A delivery charge should go to the delivery driver. The fact that it doesn't is not up to me and not my problem.

then stop ordering from that restaurant after explaining why to corporate. You are punishing the people on the lowest part of the chain for decisions made by the higher ups.

Such a pity that they can turn them off whenever they want or conveniently drop them, though.

That defence has already been used a few times in suspect cases.
