Tipping for take out

Major_9000 | Feb 25, 2010 10:00 PM

Do you guys tip when you do take-out? If you do how much will you tip?

My wife and I can't agree on how much to tip for take-out.

I'll tip a full 15% because although I'm not sitting down for a full meal, I feel servers still need to pack my food properly, get my order faster and I think they are doing a lot of the same work as if I was sitting in the restaurant..

My wife disagrees and will usually tip a couple of bucks because she feels we are only picking up our food.

Just curious what Calgary chowhounders do.
