To the editor:

I’m confused about what is acceptable/proper etiquette for tipping or not tipping the carry out people at Willie’s Super Valu. I have been told in the past that customers are not to tip the carry outs, but I see some customers tipping them and they accept the tips. So I’m confused. I know you should tip service workers yet I’ve been told the carry out people are an exception to that rule.

I would like some feedback on this issue. Do you tip the carry out people? How much do you tip? Do you keep your money and withhold tipping?
