how much do you tip pizza delivery guy?

order is $9, plus a 2 mandatory delivery fee that probably does not go to the driver.

How much do you tip? Pizza place is 1 mile away.

yup. I emphasize with the delivery guys, I don't envy their job. They come from all walks of life ranging from an elderly man trying to make ends meet to a young teen saving money for school.

I used to deliver pizzas so I know how much it can suck so around $5, even on smaller bills.

You can make a lot of money delivering though.

This is an ironic post IMO

I don't get why delivery guys would get pissed getting tipped only $1-$2

That's $8 / hr to $10 / hr, minimum if you're doing... 1 pizza an hour.

It is ironic, but I grew up at the Jersey shore so most of my deliveries were to people on vacation so I would get big tips, I worked one winter for a couple months while in High School and it sucked. I would think most areas are closer to my winter experiences, hence the tips aren't that great.

I did get paid $10 an hour though on top of tips and this was a while ago, 1997-98 so I was taking home so decent money.

interesting math. If a guy does 1 pizza an hour and only gets a $1 tip for each, that would mean $1/hr, not $8 (or $10).
