I take it you didn't read the part where I outed myself as a semi-troll this whole time? I dislike bad tippers.. but this wasn't the case.

Will never happen.. the food industry is extremely bad when it comes to the money they make, like, the russian mafia, bad.

If that were the case the only successful restaurants would be already established chains. Do you know how many people a restaurant should have on staff?

it should never be calculated with tax included.


no shit, in Branson, sales tax is like 20% that would add a lot to a tip.

Also I NEVER calculate a tip based on the check. IT's silly. Sometiems we run in somewhere and take 20 minutes to drink a beer and eat a burger. $5 tip per person or whatever. Sometimes we go somewhere and linger over a meal and get lots of refills and such = bigger tip even if the ticket was the same amount. Just depends.

I dilsike the idea of percentages because it leads to waitstaff feeling entitled, you will be tipped according to your performance, not according to how much I ate or drank.

Sorry if that makes me a dick.

When I go to IHOP and it only costs $10 for all of that food, I always feel bad even when I tip 20%.

The Loft on Perkins Rowe is garbage. Use to be an awesome spot. Now it's run by lousy staff. Not surprised that happened there. Glad you caught it. Thanks for the heads up.

I waited tables in college and still think they are over-paid. I made $20+ an hour doing relatively easy work. I've had many jobs twice as hard and half the pay so I don't feel bad only tipping 10-15%.
