Speaking as someone who used to serve, I'd prefer if you filled out the tip line yourself. Since I had to add up the tip lines at the end of the night to calculate tips, if the tip line wasn't filled out then I'd have to do all the math myself and then fill it in. It's not a huge deal, but it doesn't actually make anything easier. Also, we didn't have to ...

As someone who used to deliver pizzas, we never saw any of that delivery charge. I can only speak for the US, but it's customary to tip on the order total. BUT!

You never have to tip. But the norm in Ontario is that you do. Since 15% would be just under $3, hand the delivery person a $20 and say "keep the change." Even if the $8 (probably less, I bet there was GST too) is all for delivery, I doubt it all goes to the driver. They make minimum wage and some of them have to use their own cars and gas.

Tipping a filling station attendant is not generally expected in the United States or Canada. Some guides flatly deny it is ever expected, though others acknowledge there is disagreement on the matter. Anecdotally, in all the times I've been in Oregon and New Jersey, I have never seen or heard of anyone tipping the attendant simply for pumping gas, except ...
