A woman has sparked debate online after asking if she should tip when ordering a takeout.
That doesn't mean tipping takes place in other countries, though a lot of the heated arguments and even fights we've seen gone viral have been in the US.
One woman recently got a lot of attention online after asking her followers if she should tip when ordering a takeout.
"I call in a to-go order. I go up to the ‘to-go’ window. I grab it. She hands me the receipt, and there’s a tip line," the TikToker shared.
Then came the debate surrounding tipping, which of course led to a bit of a debate in the comments section.
Abigail asked: "Do you tip? Is it wrong not to tip? Am I going over the top and paying more for my meals by tipping?"
Explaining her dilemma, the TikToker added: "Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t ’cause, I don’t know what’s right?"
Abigail then pleaded with her followers as to what their advice would be when it comes to tipping those who work for a takeout company.
Many have flocked to the comments section to share their thoughts, with the vast majority seemingly informing Abigail that they probably wouldn't tip for a takeout.
However, the reasoning for not doing so varied from person to person.
"No tip for take out," one person simply said.
Other TikTok users said they only tip if they are being waited.
"I’m sick of tipping for everything and am operating by no waiter = no tip now," someone else penned.
While another added: "Do not tip unless it is sit down service or delivery."
On the other hand, those who rely on tips were obviously on the other side of the fence.
"I work at a restaurant. I work cashier. I rely on tips to make money. All the servers make double than me it’s not fair when people don’t tip carryout," one user wrote.
And someone who does tip quipped: "Takeout tipped at 10%. Nobody is checking to see if order is correct/missing or getting refills so I don’t tip 20-25% like I would if eating in."
