I hardly ever make $50 on a Wednesday at the pizza shop, but this week I made almost a hundred dollars.
The day was already busy due to the fact that it was snowing and there was ice on the ground. We’re always a lot busier during the day when the weather is harsh. Nobody wants to pick up a pizza or breadsticks when it’s raining or snowing and almost all of our orders are delivered. It was cold and it was snowing on Wednesday and we were busier than normal. I had five deliveries before noon. One of those deliveries was a 25 pizza pie order that went to an HVAC repair store. The manager for the HVAC repair store ordered the pizzas in the morning so we could have them ready at lunch time. I delivered the pizza hot and fresh and on time. I didn’t expect the manager of the HVAC repair store to give me a $50 tip. When he gave me the cash, I was shocked. It’s the biggest tip that I have received in a long time. I got a $60 tip one year during the Super Bowl, but the customer was extremely drunk and I still think it was a mistake. I made $100 on that day and I used the money to buy a really nice gift for my mom. Her birthday is on Monday and we are going out to dinner to celebrate. My sister is coming and so is my mom’s boyfriend. She is going to love the present I bought with my fat tip.
