You can see the 18% a the bottom. Of course people could argue and change it but they generally changed it to a lesser amount. Once a guy flipped and wanted 0% tip on a freaking huge bill after he ran us around a lot. The manager called the police on him.

I liked the lower minimum when I waited tables, I made "standard" minimum wage of the time in with one "standard" check as a general rule , and I could rotate a table within a half hour or less. I had a good living and as someone else said, my check paid taxes plus my tips if the paid wage wasn't sufficient at tax time but I wasn't hurting at 2.15$/hr.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
Only one time in my life did I not pay a bill. We were at a pizza place and my bud and I were the only two people in the place. The waiter was crap and after we got are food he sat with the manager talking. We finished and sat there. And sat there... and sat there. As waiters we decided to test them. After well over an hour after we finished we stood up by the table and waited for about ten minutes. We walked over to the host stand by the front door and stood there for about ten minutes. We were in full view of the manager and the waiter the entire time. We stepped outside the door, just a few feet. Nothing. We walked out front 20 feet or so and waited a minute or two. Nothing. We walked to the side walk down the streeta bit. Nothing. We left.
