I've had a tipping question that's bothered me for a while and I'd hope that the RHU community would be able to help me somewhat reconcile it and decide what to do for the future.Sometimes, late at night, my husband and I will get cravings, so we'll get some food from one of the sit down restaurants, like Waffle House.
However, we'd rather actually eat the food at home, so one of us goes to said restaurant and will get a to go order.
My dilemma is when I get the bill and there's a line for the tip (we always pay by card).
On the one hand, if we had actually gone there to sit down, we would certainly tip.
I'm also aware that it's hard work at a restaurant and that tips help supplement the "pay". On the other hand, I'm not actually sitting at a table, the waitress isn't having to do things like offer me drinks or clean up after me.. indeed, the only thing the waitress does is bag the order, and at that point it feels like it's no different than going to a fast food restaurant (well, except for the fact that their hash browns are awesome).
So would I still tip when I get a to-go order or not?
My husband would automatically say no, due to what I've already mentioned, but I'm a tad bit conflicted.
