Room Service Tips

This is a dilemma, at least for me.For you it may be more clear-cut.Recently had a hotel breakfast ordered through room service.Included in the bill was an 18% gratuity and a $3.50 room delivery charge.I still gave the guy who delivered the food a few bucks.Not a lot of money and certainly not enough to agonize over.I just felt funny not giving the guy anything, but at the same time felt like a dope given that I had already paid a more than adequate amount for the room service with the hotel's mandatory charges.How do you handle tipping on room service? Thanks.
