We went out to eat the other night and I gave 10%. Seriously my server did nothing but took the order back. And brought our check. Someone else brought the food out and had no idea who to give what. A hostess brought my hubby a second beer. So I left 10%. What would you had tipped?

I tipped a dollar for my Starbucks this morning. Which hurts because my coffee costs a fortune already. Lol

They usually split their tips.  You weren't just tipping the person who took your order, you were tipping the whole wait staff including the hostess

The last tip we gave was $7 for pizza delivery.  It was more than 20%.

Based on that service, I probably would've left 15%.  You never know if the hostess or other people get some of that tip.

Ya but... the hostess and kitchen help make more money so why are they included in tips. I thought only waitresses made a few bucks but yet she didn't do anything everyone else did. So why tip everyone else who is paid more to do there job.

Maybe she took a break. They are required to take breaks and can't always wait until there is no one in their area. I would have tipped like we always do (roughly 20%) as long as the order was right, the food warm and we didn't have to wait TOO long for anything.

I never leave less than 20%, even if they suck. Last tip I gave was or dinner at an Italian place. I left $20 on an $89 tab.

um... $10, take out from Olive Garden.

I can never leave less than 20%..  I was a server for 5ish years when I was younger..
