Take-out Tipping

I hate to start another tipping thread, but I wondered: am I supposed to be tipping take-out?

Like, if I go to a fish and chips place, and I order and pay, then sit myself down, then pick up my food, the eat it, then dispose of the waste myself, should I tip?

Or if I'm picking up Thai take-out and all I do is call, then walk in, pay and rab my food, should I be tipping?

I know that the entire concept of tipping is to tip your server for good service. But is there some standard for take-out tipping I'm missing?
