No one is saying to tip at a drive thru. However, if your food is delivered to you (Sonic)then it is not necessary to tip a full 20% but an acknowlegment around 1$ is the polite thing to do. Emily Post is available online. It is suggested reading for most of you. If you go to a resturant where wait staff serves you then you are a classless idiot if you don't tip at least 15%. If you can't or won't tip, go to your Moms house or McDonalds.
There really isn't much difference between Sonic and McDonalds, other than at Sonic, you eat in your car unless you take it home. Both places someone slaps fast food on a tray, at McDonalds you carry it to your table yourself, at Sonic, you hang it on the window. Big deal, it's still fast food either way. And I bet Emily Post would not tip at a drive in either.

Seems that she would. From emilypost.com :
Take Out No obligation
10% for extra service (curb delivery) or a large, complicated order

I have a college degree. Associate of Science degree to be exact. Yet I also am a waitress to help supplement my families income. I make $2.13/hour. Yes, my employer could pay more, however, those increases in pay are passed on to the guest. So for instance, you go into Applebee's, Chili's, Outback, etc...that steak you usually pay $15-20 will now be $30-40. A good server not only ensures that your order is put in correctly, he/she also makes sure you have plenty of drinks brought to your table, make sure you want for nothing. They are also in the back, making sure the food is all correct before bringing it out, arranging the food on the plate for you. Oh and let's not forget. If you don't tip your server, then they are actually paying for the "pleasure" of serving you. At the end of our shift, most servers have to "tip out" to food runners, bartenders, hostesses, etc. For instance, yesterday I made $130 in tips working from 10:30am til 11pm. After I did my tip out, I only got to take home $90 of that. Then on our paycheck, we are taxed based on the amount of food that we sold and what our tips should have been. So say you come in and have a $150 check. You leave me $1. I'm still taxed on $14 of that, so I'm paying for you. I bring home generally $30-70 a shift in tips. My paycheck I get every two weeks is for $0 after taxes. Part of the reason you tip when you go out to eat is because you don't have to prepare the food or carry the food to your table or get your own drinks. Everything is done for you. You should tip just for the convenience of having someone else take care of you. If your service is bad, then fine, don't tip. You should also tell the manager why you aren't tipping.

When you go out to eat. Your paying for the drink thats brought to your table. Your paying for your meal thats served to you. as well as cooked. what salary you choose to accept has no bearing on the meal i choose to purchase and pay for. a tip is a courtesy, not a law nor is it mandatory. we pay for a service that includes the meal being cooked, brought to our table as well as these refills that you speak of. I am unsure whom exactly you people are trying to fool here.

You are paying for the original drink, but are you paying for the many refills you get? Yes it is a courtesy, but just think of what all goes into you having an enjoyable dining experience without having to cook or clean up afterwards.

And YOU'RE (notice the proper spelling)probably one of the ignorant jerk offs that comes in after check day and doesn't tip. Even before I was a server, I tipped my servers well over the expected. It's not a law that you tip, but it is common courtesy and proper manners. The reason servers make that little amount is because that is the Federal Minimum Wage for tipped employees, meaning, the government knows that servers, etc receive tips for the service they are providing. Oh and back to the refill thing, you pay for the original drink. The refills are free and depend on whether or not your server has time to bring them to you or wants to bring them to you. We can just as easily just say survive on the first one I brought you. Some places have even started to charging for each refill brought to you. And oh yeah, as a server, I make sure that if the kitchen screws up your food, or if you order your steak medium then complain because it's pink and send it back, that the cooks don't mess with your food. It has happened and it does happen. Servers put up with a lot of crap and honestly, we live on our tips. Some do this job because they love being around people and it's a good way to bring home some cash every day. And those that do tip well and are polite make up for the asshats such as yourself try to ruin our day.

I tip solely based on the service. If it sucks then the tip will suck. As for refills. Go ask a sonic employee for a refill. It won't happen they don't do that. Ask for ketchup. They just toss it out of their apron pocket to your hand. Service is going above and beyond. If they want tips offer refills, offer to take trash away, offer coffee or mints not just the ones in the bottom of the bag. You get tipped what you work for.

That is right, just do it, tip your server. It is just the thing to do. I tip based on the type of place I am at. Sonic, well they are going to get the change plus a dollar. Fast food counter or drive through, the change. Basically self server like Ryans, 15 20 %, if a Sunday or holiday, 25 to 35% or more, just to thank them for working on a day I don't have too. Full service always 20 to 40 % even. As for service that sucks, well take a look at what is going on, is the place hammered and running wide open, if so and I don't get my needs taken care of like I want, well I still tip well because they are doing all they can. If the wait staff is standing around talking and I don't get good service, well they are still going to get 15% and I will say something as I pay my bill. Tipping is just expected and if you are not one who whats to bless someone every now and then or feel you are paying enought just for the food, well keep you cheap ass at home, you will not be missed.

If you can't or won't tip, go to a fast food place or stay home. It is a sad community that won't adhere to even the basics in life, such as good manners.

My guess is, you believe you are entitled to a lot of things. You have such little class, do everyone a favor and stay home.

You show a lot of class too. If you think your printed attitude is going to make people leave a tip, you're totally crazy.

Everyone with half a brain knows that in the food business everyone gets paid a fair hourly rate with the exception of the servers. These folks generally make $2.65 / hour plus tips. You understand, "PLUS TIPS". They expect to give you the best service possible and expect you to leave some cash on the table or on your AE card receipt. That is just the way it is, and socially educated people do just that, the tip and many of them well. No one is fooling anyone but my guess is that you are one of those tight a$$es who thinks you are so special and spending a few dollars makes you thing you should get everything for free. I love leaving a nice tip to a great server. You should keep you cheap A$$ at home and stop taking up space, but I know thing you and I would even eat at the same place.

Since all the negativity fom non tippers, I dined out fives times this weekend.Yes, I can afford to eat out as much as I like. Didn't tip a penny to any of them. Since You told me to stay home, I wanted to rebel an go spend some of my hard earned cash. Since your to lazy to work for it, thinking you are entitled. I hope you were one of the ones I didnt give any money too.

Not even $2.65...most places pay the federal minimum which is $2.13 plus tips. And those of you that are taking up for servers everywhere, and do leave decent tips....bless you.

Directly from the Department of Labor webpage.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires payment of at least the federal minimum wage to covered, nonexempt employees. An employer of a tipped employee is only required to pay $2.13 an hour in direct wages if that amount plus the tips received equals at least the federal minimum wage, the employee retains all tips and the employee customarily and regularly receives more than $30 a month in tips. If an employee's tips combined with the employer's direct wages of at least $2.13 an hour do not equal the federal minimum hourly wage, the employer must make up the difference.

So if you are not making minimum wage of $7.25 an hour between the $2.13 your employer is paying you and what you make in tips. The employer has to make up the difference.

Hope that helps you.

But when you add in taxes on the tips, you are no longer making that amount. Not to mention tipping out to everyone else.

So you want out of taxes now too? Get real. If you work, you have payroll taxes withheld, no matter how much or little you make.
