A rant about Microsoft tipping

This “rant” was submitted to The Seattle Times Rant and Rave feature:

To the cheap-o employees at Microsoft who constantly order pizza and never tip the drivers! Pizza delivery drivers make their money off of tips not from the minimum wage they receive. Microsoft orders hundreds of dollars worth of pizza at a time and deliberately do not tip the drivers. I can see it happening occasionally but every time a delivery is made? Come on you millionaires share a little of the love and stop acting like these drivers are beneath you throwing them a few extra bucks their way. It’s no different than leaving a tip at a restaurant. A SERVICE is being provided!!

Maybe the drivers would cut the ‘softies some slack if they knew how Microsoft stock has performed the past couple of months.

Or maybe the rant was submitted by someone in Google’s black ops PR department.
