    One could argue if it wasn't posted on the menu. Most restaurants do, though. It's their terms of service. Nothing illegal about it.

    Big parties often stiff waitresses, many times quite by accident. It's good policy.
    I seem to recall that it has been tested legally, and rulings have come down all over the place, so it depends on your jurisdiction.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    If he felt comfortable letting the waitress know what he thought, why would he be against letting the world know, too?
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.
