I usually tip a dollar or so for take out - especially if I'm paying by card and I don't want them to write in something more.... :)

Put in cabbies too...I generally tip 10-15% for them....
govtcheez03:  i kind of look for it - i seek out stupidity and annoy it until it either gets better, gets banned, or goes away on its own

Are you supposed to tip for takeout
Yes, and I do.  Usually between 2 and 4 bucks.

But if tipping a waiter is supposed to be for the service, what are you tipping for when you get takeout?

I generally don't tip on takeout nor tip jars.  The exceptions are when I go regularly and I constantly get good service.

Well part of it for me is the distance they have to drive.  I don't live in town so they have to come further for me.  Plus I feel bad if my driveway isn't shoveled or whatever.  Hell, I think some delivery people do more for me than some waiters/waitresses.

I don't do tip jars either.

That's delivery, not take-out.
I watch you...

Yeah, take-out:  I go into the store, order, and leave with the food
Delivery: I call on the phone to order, they drive it to my place.

The first doesn't get a tip while the second does.

Oh... fuck.  Read that wrong, obviously.  No I don't tip people when picking up takeout.  That's insane.

Actually, I take that back.  If it's a curb-side deal and it is either really fucking cold or I have to send them back for an extra trip for some reason, I sometimes throw them a dollar or so.  But if I have to walk in and get it myself, hell no.

Yeah, I definitely tip on delivery, those guys get screwed otherwise.  I meant if I go get a pizza or chinese food from the restaurant myself but the credit card slip still has a tip field.

I throw a dollar or two on the receipt if I do get takeout.  I usually get food from the same few places so I want them to be happy, I guess (I'm also conditioned to think that I'll get spit in my food if I don't)

In that case, is it worse to throw in change to make your amount "even" or to leave no tip at all?

For example, something comes out to be $12.27 and I pay by card to pick up with a tip field. Is it bad to leave a 73 cent "tip?"
definitely bas

That seems tacky to me.  But I'm sure they'll take anything they can get.

This is what I do. I tip when i pick up take out if the place sees me more than say twice a month. Like our chinese place they see us 2-3 times a month and Ashley can be really picky with her orders so I tend to give them 2-3 bucks when i pick up.
hey ethic if you and i were both courting lily allen..... oh wait, which one of us has a relationship that lasted more than the bus ride home?
