Just a reminder that with the GST going down another percentage point, anyone who's still doubling the GST as their tip count - well, should've quit that a year ago, but now you're REALLY stiffing your serving staff if you still use that calculation. Times three, plz.

(I was thinking about it on my own and hoping people weren't that unobservant, but then I saw an article in the paper so I guess it really DOES need to be broadcast).

Remember that they make $Pittance™ per hour and get the bulk of their income from tips. And yes, they chose that profession, but the accepted convention for tipping hasn't changed.

Cheers :) and sorry if you see this crossposted - I only intend to put it a few places.

Just out of curiosity..

I almost always tip (Unless I just don't have the money, but I try.). But is it expected to tip if you're just getting a pickup order? I always feel guilty if I don't.

I always wonder this too. Or if you're eating at a buffet?
