    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Time is money

    Baggers are paid at least minimum wage, and the IRS does not assume they earned 8% of the food they bag in tips.

    It entails a lot more than putting food in a bag. It involves much of the same labor that is provided when dining in a restaurant.

    I don't agree. Putting together a take-out bag is more organized. Everything is, or should be, there in one location. Most of it is "wham-bam-done".

    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 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.

    They do the same thing a McDonald's cashier does. Do you tip fast food cashiers?
    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.

    Not true

    At McD's, the food preparers wrap the food so it's ready for take out. That is not always true at a restaurant.

    You obviously have never put together a take-out order at a full service restaurant. It often requires a lot more than that.

    Back in the day we tipped everybody. We tipped the kid who bagged our groceries and carried them to our car. We tipped the guy who pumped our gas and checked the oil and washer fluid. We tipped the doorman and the elevator operator. We tipped the girl who boxed and wrapped our shirts. We tipped our paper boy and our milk man. Do you know why we stopped doing that? We stopped because one day some idiot decided that all these people needed to be making a "living wage" instead of tips so all those jobs went away. If you're a 12 year old kid you have to be careful about not running afoul of the law because you're raking leaves or shoveling snow for money.

    And the workers at McD's are paid at least minimum and the IRS does not assume they earned 8% of the food costs as tips.

    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.
