I don't tip for takeout unless they have a jar or something near the register where I can throw in my change but that's always less than a buck. As for tipping those who pump your gas.. absolutelyyyy. I can't believe anyone doesn't do that. I don't know about where you guys live but it's fuckin COLD here right now and those people have to stand out there all day. I usually tip about $3.

I completely agree that a little tip in this case would be appropriate, since most of that doesn't come with an extra cost to the customer.

Generally, I'm fairly generous when I tip. The standard is still 15% for typical service in a full-service restaurant, and I willingly choose to pay more than that almost all the time... but it is my choice, not something that should be expectation. I think about restaurants that add on 18% gratuity for large parties and such, and often my friends and I will leave a little extra cash on the table if someone has obviously gone out of their way for us.

I don't tip when I call in an order for pick-up. I don't know that anyone would do that here. At least it's never come up. I think the reason someone would pick up and order is so they don't have to tip. Sometimes there is a tip jar in like a starbucks or a cafe, and if I have change I don't need that day, I throw it in there. I do tip for delivery however regardless of whether or not there is a delivery charge with a bit extra if the wheather is bad. I think most restaurants here only charge a delivery fee over a certain amount or if the distance is more than 20 or 30 blocks.

If you go to the same place over and over, and they know you, hell yeah I sometimes tip when I get take-out, because I want the people preparing my food to associate me with good things, ya know? I worked food service when I was starting out in the work world, and I know what happens to 'good customers'-little extras that make your meal that much better.

For example, the chinese/chicken/subs place near my home where I get take-out, if I'm paying with a credit card, I leave a dollar tip. If I'm paying with cash, I don't leave a tip. They treat me good, and load up my food, so it is worth that extra dollar.

When I lived somewhere else, I used to leave a dollar in the tip jar of a sub shop I really liked. I moved and hadn't been there in months (like almost a year), and when I came in, they remembered me and made up a damn good sub for me. It wasn't like I was in there all the time before, but kindness and a buck go a long way in this world if you enjoy courtesy and friendliness and a good meal.

If people are receptive to me making a little change to an order, or always say 'hi' when I walk in, yes I'll tip. The dudes who I order sashimi from AT LEAST once a week are all lovely, know exactly what I want, and I always tip a buck or so.

I work in a bar that has a bottle shop (liquor store) attached, and we have a tip jar. There is no obligation, but if i'm busting my ass trying to serve everyone (we're the only bottle shop open after 11pm in the CBD- hence rather 'popular' in the wee hours), with a smile on my face, and answer awkward questions at the same time, a tip never hurts!

Tipping is much easier if you wait until after dark when the cows are asleep.

LOL, Smith! The thought of a tipped cow! LOL

I don't feel there is a need to tip the take out cashier. I only tip for delivery people or servers in restaurants. Servers get less than minimum wage, at least where I live; they work very hard.

The software here won't let me rep you again, but from your profile,

"I can flip the bitch switch faster than. . ."

Made me LOL. Consider that stolen property.

Sorry for the hijack. Back to the regularly scheduled programing.

I always tip for take out! A big guy like me loves takeout, I don't really like the hassel of cleaning up after cooking.
