? Tipping Applebee's or Chili's curbside / take-out servers


When I got the credit card receipt last night, my initial thought was "there is no way I'm gonna tip this tart, she didn't do anything." But then I started to wonder if she makes $0.003 per hour like the floor servers. Does anyone know if that is the case? Do you tip them?

Why are you ordering from Applebee's? That place is an abomination to food.

I don't. They're not doing much besides working the register. I'm sure they get paid more than the floor staff. Hell, most of the time I have to get out of my car to go get my food anyway.

It was actually Chili's, I just mentioned applebees cause they have the same get-up

pickup order: tip line is still on receipt. no service: $1-2 tops.

that was my departing thought, so I left $2 on a $22 order.

If they are not paying them min. wage, they should be, and they should take the damn tip line off of the reciept.

The pickup at Chili's = Burger King drive thru. Would you tip the drive thru clerk at Burger King?

but they didn't do anything. They may have printed your receipt to sign, that's about it. A retarded monkey can do that job.

eta: or even Kige can do that job.

not if the Chilite is getting paid less than the Burger Kingard


Give it time....there's got to be someone on here who's worked at Chili's and knows if these servers are paid differently than floor servers.

retarded monkeys have no problem walking. What if you decided just to walk in and pick up your food from the girl that works behind the little counter?

I worked at Outback in undergrad and I THINK that curbside service made minimum wage while floor servers made the typical 2.33

If you go inside and pick it up, i have no problems with no tipping. But a girl walking out to your car a minimum of twice to bring your food and all to you... it's mandatory to throw her a bone or two if she's cute.

I see it like this.

The waiter comes to your table and gets your order and then someone else brings it to you (usually) all the waiter does is get your drinks, and takes the heat if your order is wrong.

The take out people usually take your order over the phone, and then brings the stuff out to your car. Same as the people inside, minus the drink orders.

So yes, I do tip the take out people.
