    Tipping on Takeout

    When you order food to go from a restaurant and don't use table service do you leave a tip anyway? I mean, I don't tip at any fast food places or other places where you order at the counter so it's never occurred to me to tip at a regular restaurant if I order out. 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.

    One of the reasons I order food to go is to avoid the freakin surcharge TIP.

    I understand. Half the time when I'm ordering out it's because the place has good food but crummy service.

    Yes, but usually at slightly lower rate than I tip for table service. Unless the waitress is hot.

    I'm very generous as a tipper when attending a restaurant to eat and even when I'm receiving delivery of food at the door. These are people who generally receive less in wages because being tipped is part of the culture of the service they provide.

    I do not tip for any food I pick up at a counter myself - I would no more tip the counter help at McDonalds or Swiss Chalet than I would if I was buying underwear at the local department store.

    If people are going to be expecting tips every time they interact with others as part of their jobs, then be assured that the counter help at the DMV or any other government service window won't be far behind.

    Gipper is not a tipper.

    Re: Tipping on Takeout

    I pretty much never takeout from an actual restaurant so it's not really a question, but if I did, no I wouldn't tip them. Who am I supposed to be tipping? The only people who get a tip normally are wait staff who are providing me a service above and beyond the bill for the food. Nobody is doing that for takeout, who has earned a tip?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    At least it's an honest answer

    No, I only tip if I'm getting service at a table or if I'm ordering delivery.
