Tipping Etiquette

mtskeeter | Sep 19, 202106:44 PM     79

So, I have been told this week that when I pick up my to-go takeout I should tip 15-20%. I will gladly tip 20%+ for a dine in experience, but 15-20% for takeout? Is this a new trend because of the workforce shortage or just something recent; I rarely get takeout since I cook at home, but sometimes I just gotta have it. Living in a resort area might have some bearing on this recommendation to me. What do you say?
