    Nope, nor should I tip any bagger, regardless of where I am. Won't do it in a restaurant either.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Because servers are generally not paid a wage consistent with the work. Their tips are factored into the amount that they are paid. Really what it comes down to is that people who have problem tipping shouldn't patronize full-service restaurants. There are plenty of fast food and more upscale counter restaurants available. Full service restaurant servers are not paid the same wages...and they have to claim 8% tip on sales whether they receive 15% or nothing. When you don't tip.....the money comes out of their pocket. So you aren't only being cheap...you are kinda being rude.

    To paraphrase an old saying "Reason can't talk someone out of a belief that cheapness talked them into"

    The difference has already been explained several times in this thread.

    Re: Tipping on Takeout

    I posted earlier, but seeing where much of the debate has headed, I will add that I believe in rewarding people for good work. Whether it is a job one traditionally gets tipped for or not, I, at the very least, recognize them for their work. For me, it does not matter what their wage is, I just want to see good work acknowledged and respected.

    In the interest of full disclosure, let's point out that...

    1. Most servers, if they're any good at all, average well over 15% over the course of a week, and
    2. Most servers don't declare everything they technically should, especially with cash tips, so
    3. It's not really fair to micromanage to that degree because, if anyone does stiff them, it's unlikely they're actually paying taxes out of pocket.

    Serving and earning tips is akin to a marathon. You will have good nights and you will have bad nights. If you try to micromanage each table you will only drive yourself crazy. Cumulatively over time is the only rational way to look at tips earned.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
