Am I supposed to tip?


Recommended Posts

I think tradition states yes but not 15-20% like you would at a sit-down but it used to be 10% .

 

I have been tipping the full amount though because the extra work in attempting contactless and servers are losing hours.

Just wanted to say hi Night Elf!

Hi! I'm still around although not as much. I do try to check the boards every couple of days but haven't been replying. I'm reading though!

Yay, glad to know you are around.   I hope you are doing well.

Normally I would tip 15%.  Right now I tip 20% because I want to support business/workers right now when I can.  Most restaurants around here are still only doing curbside or delivery, so the workers are losing out on a lot of money.

I've been doing 20% anytime I get food now. I figure if people are going out of their way to possibly compromise their safety so I can get take out, I should tip like I was having a sit down dinner.

Yes. The people working curbside are,at least sometimes, servers who were put on curbside instead of the floor. So a server that got stuck on curbside world hardly make anything all night if people didn’t tip. My son’s girlfriend worked at Chili’s and they kept putting her on curbside because she was so good at it but she was so frustrated because she was making nothing compared to the good tips she made on the floor.

We're ordering food from a restaurant and picking up curb side. Am I supposed to tip?

Yes! My normal is 15% for curbside but during COVID, I've gone up to 20-25% and will probably stay there, now that I know how much work they do for carry out/curbside.

I wish there was some definitive list somewhere of when/ who we are supposed to tip.  I had no idea for years that I was supposed to leave money in hotel rooms for housekeeping.  I’m mortified I didn’t know.  But it’s so frustrating.
