This really happened. The Los Angeles Times confirmed it. An Amazon Flex driver based in Virginia began to suspect that Amazon was pocketing his tips. So, on a two-hour shift, he ordered and delivered a pack of paper towels to himself, tipping himself $15.90. For the same shift, Amazon only paid him its guaranteed base pay. When he complained, the company adjusted his pay rates accordingly, but offered no further explanation.

OH ho ho ho!!!! Yeah I did one of those Prime Now things and tipped my driver in person. She was ungodly cute too. The truth is, you should never tip the company as they never give that money to the driver and if they do, it’s taxed like it’s part of their regular pay.

At a restaurant I rarely leave a tip on the table -- I put it directly and discreetly in the waitress's hand. I don't trust the busboys and I don't trust her manager.

I don't go out to eat often, so I can afford to tip well when I do.
