    I can’t believe there are people that DONT tip on to go orders.

    sure you don’t have to leave 20% but I always tip on to go’s. Especially if it’s a place I order from more than once.

    Yeah fair enough if they're making $15 to $18 base PLUS tips. Most places I've lived the base is much lower, so you're maybe looking at $15 or $16 AFTER tips.

    Most people don't I think. No service is provided so what am I tipping for exactly?

    Someone has to take the order, place the order in the computer, wrap up the order, make sure nothing is missing and then you have to watch the bags once it’s finished until pick up. A lot of times it’s done by the bar or the wait staff. If the order is taken at the bar like many places do every minute you spend on that order is time taken away from your guests at the bar or in the dining room.


    So you tell me a service isn’t provided?

    No. I don't tip when I go to a fast food place and they place my order in a bag either.

    I'm generally a generous tipper, but I draw the line at picking up a take out order, unless it was a big order with many different components.

    A restaurant and fast food place are not the same. But you know that already. And a service is most certainly provided. I already listed it above you just happened to ignore it all.

    I tip on any food item I get. If I go to Jersey Mikes for a sub I leave a few bucks

    I had Jersey Mike's yesterday, which I like a lot. But holy fuck is that place expensive. You can eat at a sit down restaurant for cheaper. Then tip a few bucks and you might ad well just go get a steak at Applebee's

    It’s not only taking and putting the order into the computer they have to make sure everything you ordered is there. The kitchen puts the order together (Either the cooks but it’s most likely a back of the house person) and the person who has to give it to the guest has to double check to make sure nothing is missing. Mistakes happen all the time when things aren’t double checked. It’s plenty of extra work

    This is all stuff that's done in lots of situations where you don't tip though. Like I would never tip someone making me a sub sandwich either. That's just me though.

    No it isn’t and tipping is known in the food service industry.

    you stay in a hotel and get room service you don’t tip the person that brings it to your room?

    I don't tip on pick up. I used my gas lol WTF would I tip. I'm a generous tipper at restaurant don't get me Wrong but tipping on a pickup is dumb. If I knew the cook would get it and not the waitress I would consider it.

    It must be really hard for a stranger moving to the US to get used with all the tipping etiquette, when even you guys don't agree on what to tip.

    Of these service providers, who do you tip and how much?

    Bartenders
    Couriers / delivery
    Cabs
    Uber and Lyft
    Barbers and salon
    Small home repairs like plumbing, locksmirh or electrician
    Cleaning maids

    Tipping people for boxing up your pre-made and microwaved food <45>

    Just cook everything yourself, save assloads of money for drastically higher quality, and never have to tip anyone
