When you order something to go, .....

..... do you add in a tip when paying for it??? If so, how much? I have had a lot of people tell me they don't, but it makes me feel guilty not to....Especially when the people are watching you fill out the receipt.

  • I don't tip for take-away, only for delivery (or, of course, eat-in.)

  • We give $2 for a take out.

  • Well, that depends on where Im ordering take-out. If Im going for pizza the whole idea of me doing carry out is so I dont have to tip the delivery guy. But if its this chineese restaurant where they make the order right in front of me I usually do tip there.

  • I tip only slightly below what I would if sitting at the table because they do less for you. I worked in the service industry and unfortunately those servers have to account for those sales and plus sometimes that is the only thing a server gets to do that night so they depend on the tips to make any money.

  • Depends. If it is Pizza delivery I give $2 but if I order take out like those that you order by phone or web I go pick it up then no I don't.
