Tips to Go

The husband and I eat out a lot. Or rather I eat out a lot. I hate cooking. I'd much rather just go pick something up.

We do a lot of car side to go. I especially do this on nights when he is out of town.

Sometimes I tip and sometimes I don't. it doesn't seem to make a difference for me if it is a place that brings it out to the car or a place where I go in.

I don't know what makes me tip or not tip. It's not the service. It's as simple as sometimes I do and sometimes I don't.

I'm curious. Do you tip when you order a meal to go? Does it matter if you go in or they bring it out to the car?

What's proper etiquette here?


  1. I always tip in a restaurant - I know they are depending on tips - and if the service is bad...I feel I am extending "grace" - I tip anyway. I tip at Sonic if I have money and feel awful if I don't - :)
