Restaurant Tip of the Day

Eyeball your orders.

Are you sure you’re not getting stiffed at the back door? The world is full of honest people, but there are the few that ruin it for everyone. Delivery drivers are no exception. If you’re not itemizing your deliveries, then you have no one to blame but yourself if you come up short in an order. It’s not likely the distributor is going to run over with your “missing” item you claim wasn’t there. If you signed for it, you’re saying you received it. And if you do come up with a missing item when you’re checking your order, then you can assume it was a mistake and the driver will be delighted to run right back with your missing item.
