    The person who packed it up for you?

    I only tip servers. Everyone else in the food biz is paid a full wage.

    Pretty much same here.

    I tip for table service.
    I tip for delivery.

    I do not tip for take out.
    I rarely tip for buffets (I'm pretty much serving myself)
    I absolutely refuse to do tip jars. That's nothing less than outright begging, IMO.

    The third choice was "Sometimes (Explain)". I did the third choice. I have a local food venue I frequent twice a week for REALLY REALLY GOOD home made soups. They have other good choices. If I call in a pickup order and it is one of my usual wait staff, I know they will have the cook give me a little extra, etc. as I have a "relationship" with them ( actually know tons about them because of frequency seeing them) I will give them a tip when I pickup. Maybe not my usual but something.

    Re: Tipping on Takeout

    It's bad enough I have to tip a waiter simply for doing the job and not for the quality of his/her service when I eat in. Why should I tip when I am essentially serving myself?

    As you may have guessed I voted NO!
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    No, never for carryout. When it comes to wait staff, it depends on how well they did.

    If you were horrible - 0%
    If you were just fair - 10%
    If you were great - 15%
    If you were one of the best waiters I've ever had - 20%

    Re: Tipping on Takeout

    I see no reason to tip for takeout. The only reason why people tip is because wait staff makes less than minimum wage. It's a commission based on services provided. The cooks make a full wage, and the cashier is only pushing buttons and taking money.
