Serving a table is more spread out, and is even being catered to when the server is not actually at the table interacting with the customers. There's a lot constantly going on behind the scenes in order to provide good service. It even stretches out to prior to the customer arriving and after the customer leaves.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
I agree...which is why I said that it involves a lot of the same labor but not entirely....and why I indicated that I personally tip 10% on a take-out order from a full-service restaurant while I generally tip 15%-20% when dining in a full-service restaurant.
But suffice it to say, there is still labor involved for the server doing take-out orders...that takes away from his/her ability to serve the guests in the restaurant. When I was serving tables, it involved much of the same service that you give to dine in customers. I still had to place the order, I had to prepare salads (which I indicated was actually MORE work on a take-out order), I had to prepare and packaging the bread that went with the meal (which again was more work). I had to package the order and deliver it to the hostess, in the same way that I brought food to the dine-in guests. I also had to take payment....or the hostess would bring it to me to process. The biggest differences is that I didn't have to serve drinks, I didn't have to clear plates and I didn't have to bring extra items that the guests requested. I still was required by law to claim 8% of the sale as tips whether they tipped me 15% or tipped me nothing. Taxes are then taken out of my check based on those tips claimed. In the end...if you don't tip 8% on a togo order, your server is paying taxes on money that the government assumes that you gave to them, that you didn't. You might say that this is between them and the government....but ultimately it is between you as well.
Again...I didn't get upset with the togo diners that didn't tip me. I expected no tip because I don't think the vast majority of them understand or appreciate the level of service that you are providing them. I did...however, greatly appreciate those who did tip me..even if it was just a buck or two because it showed me that they had some understanding of the extra effort that I made which is why I have personally carried that over to my own tipping whenever I get take-out from a full-serve restaurant.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
