The conversations around tipping culture have always led to some sort of tension.
Whether people pay too little, too much or downright don't pay anything at all - it's clear that not everyone agrees when it comes to the subject of tipping.
And, for one Domino's driver, this was no exception as she revealed just how much she earns a day delivery pizzas door-to-door. Check it out:
People all over social media have jumped on the trend of sharing with followers exactly how much money they make in a day at their jobs.
Hopping on the bandwagon, Domino's driver Milena, took it upon herself to quantify every single drop-off she does alongside the tip - if any - she receives along the way.
Heads up - it's already caused outrage on the internet.
Taking to TikTok, Milena shared with her 17.4k followers just how much she makes per shift working for the fast food pizza chain.
She captioned the three-minute-long clip: "Tbh this was so much fun."
The driver began by explaining a new system that Domino's have started rolling out regarding selfies of all things.
She explained that the company calls its customers 'friends' and a new 'friends first' competition asks staff to try and take selfies with their 'friends'.
"If they take a picture with us and their order, we get a wildcard," she continued.
Milena added: "If we get so many wildcards, we get different rewards."
The rewards in question include iPads and a day off work among other gifts.
She then began relaying the interactions she had with each customer - or 'friend' - explaining the amount of money she received as a tip alongside whether or not they agreed to take a selfie with her.
Many of which did not tip at all.
As part of the 'Job Details' page on the official Domino's website, the company explains to customers that their tip makes up a considerable fraction of their hourly wage.
One of their US branches outlines that drivers earn $10 an hour and are expected to make three deliveries before hour.
They explain an 'average' tip per delivery is $2 - giving them an hourly tip rate of $6 which then bumps up their hourly earnings to $16 an hour.
After having worked a six-hour shift, in which she made 19 separate deliveries, Milena reported that she earned $125 in tips.
Clearly doing better than the reported average, those numbers make for an average tip of around $6.58 per delivery.
The first TikTok of the series has since received over half a million views and thousands of comments from people eager to weigh in on her daily earnings.
Many were outraged at the 'no-tippers' with one TikTok user posting: "I am honestly so shocked why people aren’t tipping? That’s like common knowledge to tip pizza delivery."
"Im surprised on how many people don’t tip their delivery drivers," a second added.
Clearly also shocked with the amount of people who didn't tip, another wrote: "So wild hearing all the no tips. I could never do that to my delivery driver."
"I would be embarrassed not tipping," a fourth revealed, "what's wrong with people?"
Compared to the customers in the video, many began to wonder if they've been over-tipping this whole time.
"I realised today I'm a really good tipper cause I definitely tip more for less than these," one TikTok user admitted.
Another questioned: "Why are people not tippers or tipping so low. I never tip less then $10."
"Here I am ordering just 1 pizza and tipping $10," chimed in a third.
Others, however, commended Milena's positive attitude when handling such customers.
Someone wrote: "I love your attitude whatever the outcome! It’s so refreshing."
"NO TIP?! And you’re so gracious about it," another praised.
