Tipping for take out?

Iceman | Jul 16, 2011 07:07 PM

I'm wondering if there is any rule of thumb for tipping on a take out order. I always see the gratuity line, even on a to go order, and while I normally tip 20% on table service that seems way too high for take out... but I also feel weird leaving it blank, figuring someone had to box the food up.

Was wondering if anyone knew of a standard practice here.
