    Tip jars keep popping up in unexpected places like ice cream parlors and coffee houses that don't serve your food.

    You'll also notice it on the receipt at Dominos when you pick up your own pizza, some people tip even then.

    Is anyone familiar with "modern" tipping etiquette because I am from a time where we tipped when our food was delivered to our home or our table, or when our car was parked and returned right in front of the entrance, but never at an ice cream parlor or a coffee shop.

    I don't like to feel like a scrooge, but when I see people tipping Dominos when they pick up their own pizza, I think it's time someone set down some rules so as not to make people feel uncomfortable.

    Ahhh - now I understand. We just stayed in the building and waited while they made the food. They didn't come out to the car.

    No I didn't, but I wasn't sure since the guy came out to the car (and made multiple trips - since he didn't know the coupon was good for 2 kid's meals per 1 adult entree). I know the coupon mix up was his mistake for not reading the fine print and he left one of my dinner boxes inside which he had to go back and get. Needless to say the kids did not need to wait for their food to cool off when we got home. I just wasn't sure because he immediately looked down at the receipt after I signed it and gave it back to him, so I thought I'd ask you since you've been blogging about tipping and about this deal. Thanks for the reassurance.

    No - not on to go orders. Do you tip on takeout?

  • triplettk Dec 21, 2010

    Paid $18.58 for last night's dinner and today's lunch (2 adult entrees and 4 kid's meals) at the curbside togo!

    Faye - did you tip since you got it to go?

    So glad to hear it worked out for you all. It worked out well for my sister and law and her family as well.

    Total - you did well on the tip. The general rule is that you tip on the total before any coupons and gift cards. You tipped over 20% of the original total so you were a wonderful customer!

    That was a WINNER!! Our family of 5 ate for...(this indeed deserves a drum roll)....$3.66 YaY. Total bill was $43.68. Thank you Faye! and the giver of the gift card! Garner accepted it no questions. However, I think the waiter was a little upset that he would not get a good tip, and I'm not quit sure how that rule goes. But being the holidays and getting such a good deal...waiter was quit happy after all was said and done. We got a good meal for 5 with drinks,appetizer and laughs for $12.00. Oh yeah, and all the kids all have lunch for tomorrow too!
    Now that is a deal!

    Half rack of ribs for me - 9.99 + two free kids meals = happy mama!

    Apex Chili's accepted the coupon no questions asked.

    Thanks Faye!

    Thanks for the warning. I was just coming to print it out. Will let you know! Nice meal at Chili's Faye!

    WARNING! I went to use this coupon tonight and they initially told me it was one free kid's meal per adult entree. I pointed out the very clear wording that said 2 free kid's meal per 1 adult entree and they honored the coupon. They did not realize that the wording on the coupon allowed for 2 kid's meals per entree. I hope nobody else has any issues. They were very nice but quite surprised about the wording on the coupon. And they did let me use it at the Chili's to Go take-out. Total cost for 3 meals $10. Hubby and I split the grilled chicken tacos and I made Steamfresh cheesy broccoli for all of us to share (on sale with coupon .50). Total cost for 4 to eat Chili's: $10.50.

    Total, you shoudl be able to use the gift card with no problem. It is a form of currency and not a coupon so shouldn't be an issue.
