This guy sounds like an asshole, but here's a question I struggle with. What about carry out? Do you all tip when you get takeout? I usually throw a dollar or two, because I feel bad, but I never really want to. Is that wrong?

It depends on the situation, but usually I don't. But then again, I almost always tip on coffee, and that's basically carry out.

As someone who works in a restauraunt whose job is to take care of take out, ice cream and people sitting at the counter, we get payed 6.50, so tipping is nice but it's not necessary.

$6.50?! That's criminal. I hope your tips raise that wage pretty significantly.

The majority of the time they get to $8.50, and when I don't get tipped enough they cover it.
