Delivery man yelled at us for not tipping 20%

OP here - I would have tipped a bit more on $65 myself. My sis is younger and wasn't sure. Also I usually - pick up because it seems so wasteful to take delivery for one - but this was for more people. Anyhow - I'm relieved to see there isn't one perfect answer - a dollar or two extra might have avoided the whole thing. Still 2 blocks on a bike - $4 isn't bad. Unless ofcourse thats his only source of income. Still its not nice being yelled at.

Delivery man yelled at us for not tipping 20%

re: Quine
OP - this was a typical order, and the guy did not come to the apartment. We always meet the delivery people on the ground floor since there is no buzzer. My sister did not yell back. She was a bit embarrassed and a bit angry. We did call the restaurant. The woman didn't seem to care too much, just said ok.

My sister ordered from Grand Sechuan at St. Marks (8 Street) located between 2nd and 3rd Avenue (NYC, NY). The bill was $65. The distance was up one block and across one avenue. She didn't know how much to tip, but figured a 2 block bike ride - about 2 minutes, right ? was worth $4. It was early evening, nice weather.

The delivery guy yelled at her and said she owed him a 20% tip - which would be about $12 and then told her to never order from Grand Sechuan again.

What do you think ? Should tipping be 20% for delivery people as well as eat-in ?
