Very much agreed. Especially since it's, like, an extra 50¢ or $1 or $2 or $3. Sure, things are tight, but that little extra reaps benefits beyond the cash. You improve your reputation with that server and restaurant, you improve their mood so their service is better for the next few people, you directly stimulate the economy that much more, and nobody spits in your soup.

Well, that depends on the number of people, the paying, etc.

I have a family of 6 and may have other people with me. The last order I got from a restaurant was takeout, but reflected closely what might have been ordered, and was over $200, so that's over $40 in tips if it were a sit-down, not an extra $3.

I think the idea may have been that the extra cost of a good tip over a low one isn't that much, rather than the difference between a good tip and not tipping at all -- although of course with a large order like yours, every 5% is another ten bucks.

Precisely that.
