If you want a sign that tipping culture has reached peak ridiculousness...

To-go orders want tips. Drive thrus want tips. Cashier stands want tips.

But keep in mind that is put in place by EMPLOYERS who will most likely pocket that money. It is rich employers getting richer.

To go orders should get tips. A lot of the time people making your to-go orders in a restaurant are making $2 an hour. The maximum wage I've heard of for a to-go person is $4.50. they place your order they put everything together and make sure everything is right and they bring it to you at your car. And even if they're not bringing it to your car, they still deserve some kind of tip for doing all that for you. That's how they survive.

The tip is for the waitstaff/bus/bar back/bartender, the chefs and kitchen staff should be paid by the resturant owner.

Did you hear that on Trump's way out there was apparently a change in the law in who could count as tippable staff? I believe it was a big name like Chili's or Applebee's changed to that system where back of house staff like the cooks are now tipped and pay was cut to reflect that. So now your server can get even less of that tip than before.
