    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.

    That's almost exactly how I go about it.

    No, I don't tip for take out. There is no reason. The top is for the servers, I am generous to servers, even more so to delivery drivers but the goober that brings my bag to me, no, i don't do that. It's like giving the person at McDonalds a tip for handing your bag to you. No, no tip on that kind of thing.

    But I won't quote the rest as I 100% agree. I actually tip so well that waiters and waitresses remember me and I get better service. Of course I was taught to tip to the quality of service. It isn't rare for me to leave a 100% tip.

    Actually. Me and a few friends/coworkers who were also known as generous tippers used to play game of "who can tip the highest." It was basically a pissing contest on who would be more generous. I only one once or twice...but one waitress had like $75 check (between like 7 people) and a $200 tip.

    What I hate is when tips are pooled. I think that is crap. I want my tip to go 100% to the person I tipped. They earned it. Not the lazy sack who only gets minimal tips because he can't pull his weight.

I figure that I'm not taking up any of the servers time as it's usually a hostess or the manager who handles things and they are usually getting a full wage instead of server rate.
    What's to tip? The chef doesn't get tips - tips are for the waitress, who didn't have to wait on you.

    No tip.

    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.
    I usually tip a little at a buffet because they usually do clear your plates off the table at least.

    Re: Tipping on Takeout

    Depends on the restaurant and what I have ordered.
    If I have a simple order I am less likely to offer a tip for a togo.
    And if I do decide to tip, it's never as much as for if I have a whole meal there.

    I may be wrong.

    You could look at it as an actual fee for the service rather than a surcharge on your food.
    Essentially, that's what your tip is paying for-the service, not the food.

    They provide a service for a fee. We get to unilaterally decide the price of the services we have already obtained.
    De facto, servers work for the customer, not the restaurant. They just work AT the restaurant.

    In theory yes but the reality is TIPS have become an expected part of wages regardless of service so in reality it is a surcharge.
