Chipotle App Blocked Customer From Giving The Driver Too “Generous” A Tip

  • After ordering on the Chipotle app a customer got a notification saying they couldn’t give more than half of the order total in tips, according to an appalled diner.
  • “Whoa, whoa, whoa. That is mighty generous of you, but tips can’t be more that [sic] 50 per cent of your food’s total,” the misspelled popup message pointed out.
  • “Well we can’t have the peasant making any extra money that the company isn’t!” one Redditor wrote sardonically.

“A fast food customer has shared their shock after they were prevented from tipping their delivery driver too “generously”.

After placing an order on the Chipotle app they received a notification informing them they couldn’t give more than half of the order total in tips, according to a screen grab taken by the appalled diner.

“Whoa, whoa, whoa. That is mighty generous of you, but tips can’t be more that [sic] 50 per cent of your food’s total,” the popup message said.

The customer posted the image to Reddit explaining that they had offered the driver $5.45 after ordering $10.90’s worth of food because they were “just trying to help”.

In the end they were forced to pay the driver’s bonus in cash to avoid the app limit, they told the Daily Dot.

But fellow Redditors soon asked why Chipotle and other delivery apps would take measures to explicitly prevent larger tips.

“Well we can’t have the peasant making any extra money that the company isn’t!” one wrote sardonically….”
