Are Tips Required for Takeout?

Here's an issue that I wanted to get some opinions on from Hounds. You go to pick up a pizza or a Chinese food order at your favorite local place. You pay with a credit card. You receive the same paperwork as those who are eating at a table in the restaurant. There is a space for a tip. I personally never tip when I'm just picking up an order. But a hostess said to a friend of mine she should get a tip because she placed the order with the kitchen and went and got it from the kitchen when it was ready. Some people have told me they give a smaller tip for takeout. Am I wrong not tipping at all for takeout?
