    If someone's running it out to my car, I always tip them. I'm talking about just ordering something to go.

    Back before Bennigan's shut down, they paid the To-Go person $2.13/hour but they also got an automatic 10% grat from all sales.

    Some days they'd leave with more than the servers....

    In response to why the restaurant doesn't have to pay the full wage I think is that they tax the tip money. If we remove that, I'm sure they'd have to pay the normal minimum wage.

    On an unrelated note, I enjoy going to a restaurant where I know people who work there. I normally get them as my server and I get good service, and especially fresh/hot food. I hate it, however, when you go to a place that you know the waiters, and they ignore you; thinking they can take their sweet time getting back to you. :steam: I have chose to not tip a friend before.

    Normally I tip at around 20-25%, but ONLY when I can afford to tip. If I can't, I don't eat out.

    What happened? Last time I heard, the normal tip rate was 15%! So I usually give between 10% and 15% tips, but on the rare occasion that I have lots of cash I might tip 20-something percent.

    And when I'm not sure whether I'm supposed to tip or not, I don't. I always get the feeling it would seem demeaning to the person receiving the tip if they weren't "supposed" to get one. Kind of like telling someone that you pity them. Anybody else understand this sentiment? (Plus not tipping saves me money )

    If I'm not sure on whether or not to tip I won't either. I don't think it demeaning to give a person a tip if they weren't supposed to receive one. At my previous job I was not supposed to receive tips, but when I did my attitude was something like, "kewl, more money for gas." Money is money, and if someone wants to give me some because they appreciated something I did I ain't gonna say no :P That might just be me though.

    Evan's tip starts at 10%. Depending on how I'm served decides otherwise.

    I order my drinks without ice --always! If the drink comes out with ice, their tip just got cut.
    If my don't have to ask for a refill, their tip just got boosted.
    You get the gist.

    I might throw a couple of pennies and a piece of bubble gum on the table, or I might tip 15-20% (20% being super rare since I don't have much money)

    My hair stylist has owned her own salon and has done well for years. Technically one is not supposed to tip an owner because of the unspoken implication that she's "one of the help" and may not be doing well without the extra boost.

    I asked her about this. She didn't say, "Please don't tip me!"

    If I can afford a tip and am a regular customer, I tip generously. It insures continued good service and good will between a service provider and their consumer. Often my long-time service people will bend over backwards on those times I have a special request. Some even tell me things like., "Don't buy that today. Come back next week when they're going on sale."

    Having a relationship with your service providers is becoming a thing of the past because of the high mobility of our population. And with the loss of that comes the deficit in efficient service, in my opinion. "Don't know who you are; Don't care."

    Wow, I never think about percentages... I just leave them three or five dollars and leave. What does my bill have to do with what kind of service you gave me? :confused:

    Because waiters have to make a living, so if you treat me nice, why not, I'll supply the cash thats gonna go to your six-pack of Shiner tonight. Waiters don't get paid near enough.

    I usually tip somewhere between 15 and 20%, depending on what brings the total up to the next whole dollar increment (I use my debit card extensively and I tip that way).

    I tip around 30%- I work a job where tips are given (when people remember ) and have worked a job where I depended on tips in the past. As long as the person does a good job, they get a good tip. The worst waiters I've encountered get a mere 10% or so tip, and we're speaking waiters so bad that I have to go to the kitchen themselves to get a drink refill!

    I prefer to error on the side of generosity than to be stingy.

    Also- if in doubt about tipping- tip! It's not insulting, it's a note that says "good job!" to the person on the receiving end!
