    It's been debated, some said you do and some say you don't. What do you guys think?

    I will not say "tip". Say the meal costs $19. I may give $20 and ask the person to keep the change.

    I do that sometimes. A lot of times, I leave a dollar for take out because someone once told me they leave a dollar since the worker had to package your food and make sure the order is correct. I heard that if it's a big order, someone suggested to leave 10% tip. But I have heard other people saying no.

    For take out, I don't tip as there is no service. For eat in, I tip 10%. Money is not easy to earn.

    What about for places where you just buy a drink or an ice cream but if you use your credit card, it has a slot for you to write a tip but if you pay with cash, you do not see that tip slot on the receipt?

    In many restaurants/eating places, they will place a small plastic box/container for one to put the tips.
