Why?!?

I bet some people do. I think American's are the only country in the world that tip for just doing your job.

John said...

Fuck, no, am I supposed to? As a former tip-dependent employeee, I try to tip whenever I can.

And yes, while it seems like we tip people for doing their job...and the same time employees aren't really paying that much to these people doing their job.

Nope...never. Ever. And if you do, you're a terrorist.

Dan said...

if it's a big order that someone had to do a lot of work to pull together, yes. otherwise no.

I gave the woman and extra $50 last night when I picked up my Whopper combo from Burger King.

no, that's why you pick it up.

i don't tip for pickup... i do throw an extra buck in the tip jar at my corner ice cream joint bec i worked at one all through hs and college and feel their pain.

Ryan said...

No way. That's the reason for getting takeout instead of delivery.

Sarah said...

no, i don't tip on pick up...but i do feel a little guilty when they give you a slip to sign and there is still the space for a tip...i feel awkward drawing a line through it, or writing $0, right in front of the person giving me the food...

Paying people to do their job and make me get it? Are you crazy? Are you high, Clairee?
