A poll on pizza delivery, tipping in particular. Be honest, no one on the internets cares if you're a lousy tipper. I probably left off like half the questions I had in mind... oh well. And where I said "pizza guy," just imagine I said "pizza delivery person," it was too long and unwieldy for me to care to be PC.
