The Pastor doubled down on stoopid not to mention lying when she claimed on TV she DID leave $6 (17%) on the table.
Can anyone tell me when the usual tip went from 15% to 18%, why, and how come I didn't get to vote on it?
I'm not a fan of auto tips, a tip should be at the discretion of the customer.
I've been out with several couples and a party of 8 at fine dining restaurant can see a bill easily over $400. So the server gets tipped $72 for an hour and half work? At one table?
Servers at fine restaurants can make 100k a year, more than many of the people they are serving who actually have a college degree to justify their salary.

Moderator's Warning: Keep it down guys. Talk about the issue not what lean you think each other are.
I do think it should be very clearly shown on the bill -- as in written in red.
Thank you, Quazi!
Just a question...has anyone here NOT been upset by the autotip policy at any given restaurant? I am a generous tipper. I usually give well over 20% if my service is even decent. However...if the extent of your service is to bring me a menu, take an order, bring me a glass of something, have to be reminded about a refill, bring me my food, and the whole time be surly about it? **** you. Tip of the day...do your job and I'll give you a tip commensurate to your service.
The fact the pastor is a jerk is not relevant.
She should have been fired. Was it heartbreaking? Maybe not, depending on the economy there. Personally, I think she did the smart thing. The Preacher had to account for his meaning of generosity.
