What does it matter if she saw you do it or not? She would have seen it crossed out in a little bit anyway. It's a weird thing that you would bother to cross it out and lower it by only a dollar, seeing as how a dollar is relatively insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but it's just weird as opposed to horrible. Plus, it was only take out, people don't normally tip on take out at all so if I were her, I'd feel grateful to have even gotten a couple dollars.

I never tip on take out. If I am not being waited on or otherwise helped, I do not tip. The only person who should take credit for my meal is the cook, who would not receive any of the tips anyway...

181- actually in most restaurants the cooks and kitchen staff do get a share of the tips. and any meal, including take out, that doesn't have tips left for it, costs the servers tips. 4-5% of the tip goes towards the cost of the food, so if no tip is left, they have to pay out of their tips towards it.

You only tip if they treat you different? Do you know that waiters and waitress's only make 5 dollars an hour. That means we rely on your tip to actually make what a normal person would make at a job. If your not going to tip go somewhere you do not have too. You obviously never waited tables because if you did I guarantee your attitude would change really quick.

I think what he means is that he wants the waiter to make the night good by providing good service and that they should have to work for a big tip and not just expect it

Where I live, they make minimum and tips are bonuses. I usually tip anyways unless I got bad service. My sister is a waitress and she makes more than I do per hour before tips.

Most waiters / delivery drivers etc get paid minimum wage and RELY on their tips to get by. If you don't tip for any reason other than the service was terrible, you're pretty much a dick. You don't know what it's like working in the food industry obviously. You can always tell who has or hasn't by how appreciative someone is.

3, you're not a king so don't expect to be treated like one. The only kind of special treatment you'll be getting is the one with quotation marks around it

I am a waitress in Georgia, and here I get paid 2.15 an hour, and 100% of that goes to pay my taxes. If my table doesn't tip me, I essentially have to pay to do my job.

bullshit, people do tip on take-out. you should tip on take out. if you have ever worked at a restaurant you would know that taking and wrapping up to-go orders is a big pain in the ass and it takes you away from your tables which are tipping you more. So you should tip a few bucks. you don't need to tip 20% but at least give $3-5.

it isn't being cheap if you're saving money you don't have. Sure, the likelihood of OP not having the extra dollar is probably low, but it's not an impossible scenario.

i was a waitress for 4 years. when i order take out i always tip even if just a little bit -take out isnt like you are waited on hand and foot. AND every minimum wage job has a tip jar this day. as a professional she shouldnt be commenting to you on how you tip. if youre eating out, tip 15-20%. picking up, a couple bucks is sufficient. but commenting on it was inappropriate on her part.
