Do you still leave a tip when you order "to go" ??

I used to always leave one, a small one, but then started to change my mind and not leave anything. I mean, its my gas, my ass who's getting off the car to pay.. why should I leave a tip? So the last couple times I got a strange "look" when not leaving one. Am I a scrooge for not tipping on "take-out" or "to-go" orders?

  • I don't tip either. But I always feel like I did something wrong if I don't tip, I get that glare as I'm cashing out like they're waiting to see if I tip or not. ...."ehhh.. I'm just going to take my pizza and go now...."

    What puzzles me are places like Subway or Cold Stone Creamery, where they have that little make shift tip jar...? why? Their job is no different than some guy working at Burger King, so what's with the tip jar?

  • No. I believe tips are for good service and with to go you aren't being served at all.

  • I don't, unless they have curb side service. If they have to come out to my car because my lazy a$$ can't get out and get it they deserve a tip!

  • Moomie, I want a Sonic here!

  • Yeah, Jspy.. for sure. We do the Applebees carside to go and always tip cause its her ass standing in the rain, while I stay nice and dry inside the car with my holey sweatpants and socks.

  • Oh gawd Moomie, you had to mention Sonic. It's been 9 years and... 11 days since I've had a Sonic chocolate malt. Now I don't even remember the question.

  • Dunkin Donuts has a tip jar. For what? Wating 5mins to get a donut?
