Should You Tip on Takeout?
This whole tipping business is getting out of hand.
"When the person taking your order is a server and the restaurant is busy, there’s an opportunity cost for him in taking your order."
An opportunity cost?? Is the food free? Isn't the restaurant making money from the order? So the staff at MacDonald and KFC don't pack your stuff in little boxes?
I'm not taking up table space, I don't have someone coming to my table to explain the menu, then coming every five minutes to top my water and asking if everything is alright. I'm not in the restaurant taking 1 hour of service time. Why in the world should I tip?
Soon, we'll have to be tipping for electricity and gas, after all, someone types the bill and puts it in the mail and sends it to me. What nonsense, wake up, people!
