    I do think it should be very clearly shown on the bill -- as in written in red.
    What if the service on that party of 6 or 8 was bad?

    While a server may give part of their booty to the bus or assistant, the kitchen crew that did most of the work gets squat. How is that fair?

    upset? No, not really. My wife used to be a waitress for a few years and during her time, they always stuck her with the 8+ party tables and she would get stiffed on tips with most of them. It wasn't because of lack of service either. Many other waiters and waitresses have the same issues which is why they started the autotip.

    Bottom line I guess is, if you don't like the policies at a restaraunt don't work there or support them. I wouldn't blame people though for being upset and not supporting establishments that use atuotip for 8+ party tables. I guess I see both sides of the issue with atuotip.

    you don't return

    you might also have a word with the manager before leaving, explaining your decision not to spend your money there in the future

    And this does happen as well. However, the people do have a choice not to support that establishment again.

    The kitchen staff is usually paid a higher stable wage than the servers. I remember back in the 90s the waitresses would only get $2 an hour versus $5.50+ that the kitchen crew got.

    I have favorite restaurants and favorite waiters. I won't discontinue frequenting them over one bad night with a new server. But the way you tell a server you were unhappy is by leaving a smaller tip, maybe 15%, maybe 10 if it was really bad (cold food, wrong order, etc.) without having to involve the manager which may end up in a harder rebuke then you wanted.

    If that were the case, I would speak to the manager. Actually, I'd speak to the manager way BEFORE the check came.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Even at low end places like Denny's the servers are making 15-20 an hour, at high end, 75-150. They don't have to split with the kitchen as they would get something from all the servers, but they shouldn't be making minimum wage while the server is making as much as someone with a college degree. Generally we're not talking about chefs, but the kitchen help who does the prep, etc.

    your choice to accept weak service
    your choice to not involve the manager
    but when you say down and ordered in a party, where it was posted that an X% gratuity will be added to the checks of parties having Y number of persons, you have obligated yourself to pay that auto tip
