    Still close. 17.7 using 150.

                Did my first Instacart delivery today, and someone lowered the tip from $6 something to 2. For a delivery 20 minutes away.

                  I haven't used any of the delivery apps so I'm not very familiar with them, but is the pre-tipping there to entice someone to take your order?

                  If so, I'm surprised these apps don't have a lockout feature for changing tips. Unless it's a blatant mistake in entering, say >50% of the total or something, it should lock in.

                    At least with Door Dash, the tip comes up when I take the order and they can't change it. Instacart, they can. I saw a $50 order today and I almost took it, but thought that looked too good to be true.

                      Is there any way for you to leave feedback on users like there is on Lyft/Uber? Also, try networking with other drivers through Facebook or something. I'm sure there is a way to out people who are showing bit tips, but then rescinding them.

                        Holy ****. That’s horrific. I don’t think we’ve tipped under $15-$20. Usually 15-20% of the order. Our orders have been in the range of $100-$150. The only times we’ve tipped 15% was when the dude didn’t text us for substitutions.

                        We almost always leave detailed sub notes but sometimes say just “Text for subs” since we’ve gotten burned by people just subbing themselves without asking. If they sub a much higher cost thing without asking, I don’t tip the extra.

                        We also figured out to tip on our first order from a month-plus ago that we didn’t know how. Felt good to surprise the lady with a very hefty tip. Wish we could have sent a note apologizing.

                        Regardless, people are ****ing degenerates.

                          Want to know what nearly unrestrained capitalism looks like?

                          Speculation, arbitrage, and insider trading: Inside the Magic: The Gathering trading market.

                          So as an avid MTG player I’ll add a few notes:

                          1. Wizards of the Coast (or WOTC (pronounced Watt-See) in the MTG community) never comments on anything involving the “secondary market” or sales of single cards. Why? Because if they did it’s believed they’d run into issues with gambling laws and the value of cards in the random booster packs. As far as they’re (publicly)concerned every card is worth the same.

                          Fun fact: In Germany you have to have a gaming license to hold any kind of Magic tournament with a cash prize. It’s why they don’t hold major tournaments there anymore despite its popularity.

                          2. The Reserve List is a real thing. Most of the cards on it are actually pretty crap but the playable staples on it are absurdly expensive and drive up deck prices in the older formats like Legacy and Vintage. It came about after a reprint set Chronicles heavily destroyed the value in cards and many collectors were PO’d. They’ve talk about getting rid of it, and even had a meeting with prominent sellers about it, because most players and sellers hate it but promissory estoppel worries seem to be stopping it. It’s actually why formats like the Pioneer one mentioned have come about, because they can control things with reprints and such.

                          3. Insider trading is almost certainly going on. WOTC is notorious for being a low paying company in the gaming industry and in the Seattle area. It would not be surprising if some employees were selling off info to speculators.
