No I don’t. I’m always kind of weirded out though because there is a tip line. If I eat in store I do tip a few bucks. I don’t think you’re supposed to tip?

Of course I do.  It is usually added into the sales of the waitress that had to enter the order, so I always tip.  I figure if they are taxed like I tip, then at least I should cover the amount of taxes they pay on the order.

No I don’t tip.  They did not serve me or deliver it.  They prepared my food…. which is what I am paying for already.

Nope. Don’t tip. I could be wrong (someone correct me if I am), but the driver gets all of the tip if he/she delivers. So why would I give someone a tip if I pick up that wouldn’t get it if it was deliveverd? 

If I pay with cash and have change. Sometimes I’ll drop it into the tip jar.

ETA: I’m talking about pizza, chinese food, jimmy johns, etc – restaurants that offer delivery and I choose to pick up. (Not a sit-down restaurant that I order pickup. I don’t know what I would do. We’ve never done that.)

If they bring it to my car, yeah, I’ll give a little (but not a full tip). If I go in to get it, no. I also consider what work the serve does (some places, they just take your call and watch the bag of food, others have them prepping the salad, getting your sauces, etc.). I’ve been a server for years, and I don’t expect tips on a takeout, it’s just a nice little bonus when I get one.

I usually tip when I pick up but not as much as if I were to eat in the restaurant (since they are obviously spending a lot more time/work on me if I eat in). If I eat in, I always tip 15-20%. If I am picking up, I usually just round up a few dollars. I still think they have taken the time to take your order and then package it up and get it ready for you, plus the taxes on all sales. Since wait staff get such poor wages, I always think that it is nice (but not necessarily expected) to give at least a little bit for the time they took to get your food ready.

I tip because, like PP said, there are still taxes on someone’s sales.  I don’t tip as much as I do when I eat out or have delivery, but I’ll tip $2. (I tip $3 for delivery, unless it’s a huge order.)

I don’t. Tipping is for service and since they aren’t serving me anything, I don’t think it’s necessary. I do always feel like a jerk when I cross off the tip line right in front of them tho.

No, I don’t tip. I don’t go to a fast food place, order food and leave a tip so I don’t see this as any different. I only tip if I’m sitting down and someone has actually served me.

if I was in the states and picking up food, no.. might throw some change in a tip jar if I paid cash but in general, I wouldn’t

tipping is not a common practice in denmark at all.. servers usually make at least $20 an hour so its not necessary.
