Tipping the delivery guy?

Just curious...you order a bag of food, the place adds a $3 delivery charge - what’s an appropriate tip for the guy? Is $5 still good?

I think we're at the point now where a fin is minimum, not bad, but anything less would be.

In my younger days, I had people ask me for exact changed back in coins. :kook:  Quite a few single quarter tips as well.

How much was the bill? I was in the restaurant business for a number of years, and it sucks. Because of that I'm an over tipper. Not just when I go out to eat, but anybody that gets a tip gets a good one from me, unless you suck at your job. I always go by how much the bill is, delivery or otherwise.
30% is about my minimum.

Was it his own car? 
Cinelli’s has a little fleet of delivery trucks, they tack on a surcharge. 
If it was his own car, 8 bucks ain’t so bad.

That’s kinda what I was thinking, thus the question. $5 used to be a generous tip for some guy getting paid to deliver food...then it was probably decent...now it feels kinda minimal. Not ready to double it to $10 for your average stranger doing their job...but $5 all the sudden feels kinda blah. 

 

Whet about the $3 delivery fee some restaurants charge? Does that go to delivery guy?
