Today, I was doing takeout orders at the restaurant I work at. I spent a long while putting together this guy's $135.00 order. When he finally got there to pick it up, I told him to fill out the credit card slip. I looked at it after he left. He gave me a 40 cent tip. FML
The basic lesson to learn here is that OP was fulfilling a takeout order. This is NOT, I repeat, NOT considered service. All the OP did was put the customer's food in a bag, and ring him/her up on the register. Tips are given for service performed throughout a dining experience when eating at a restaurant. Since NONE of this is performed for take-out orders, you should not be expecting any sort of tip, and in fact if you do so happen to receive one, then you should be very grateful, even if it is small.
