    LOL, they should have forced the bar to split the ticket....no we are not a 'party/group' we just want to sit together.

    What do you think?
    I think we should drop this ridiculous tipping thing and just pay people to do their jobs. It would prevent absurdities like this.

    Re: Couple Busted for Refusing to Pay Tip

    I remember when I was about 4 years old my mom explaining tipping to me at a diner. I asked her why she was leaving money on the table.

    I always leave a good tip but waiters are really good in my town. In Europe I leave American cash as an extra tip on top of the added tip.

    A tip/gratuity is a gift of money, over and above payment due for service and is up to the patron to decide based on caliber of service.

    If it is added to the bill it's a surcharge or even hidden cost.The couple could have a case for plenty of damages on all kinds of grounds.

    I have a friend who leaves a dollar tip regardless of the service. That's it. Plus, she asks for extra stuff all the time, like extra rolls, refills etc. She's a huge pest. When I'm with her, I pay the bill, and leave extra money under my plate. She's an embarrassment. But this is what happens when people work for tips.

    Believe me, I don't very often. Well, let's just say, I make up for her cheapness. I've always felt sorry for people who wait tables. It's tough work. Regardless of the service, they will get a tip from me.

    This defeats the entire purpose of tipping

    If you don't tip in the US you have just paid your waiter about $2.00 an hour. Who would ever work for such measly wages?

    Over the course of your lifetime, treating your waiter well is not going to be a big deal.

    If they do a shoddy job, why should they get paid? A tip by definition is something that you pay in exchange for good service. If one had to pay it, then why not include it in the waiter's salary?

    So the chef a higher paid person screws up your order. Should the service person have to pay for that?
