Watch out for waitresses adding auto gratuity if you've been drinking...


Tonight I was at the Loft in Perkins Row, and they have two for one signature drinks. I was with my fiancée and my dad, and we had two drinks each. When we got our check, there was an auto grat of 40%. After raising a big stink, we got the auto tip taken off, then tipped zero. The waitress didn't apologize when she brought us the new bill, which tells me she was just hoping we wouldn't notice the extra charge. Dumb bitch.

3 people and they add a grat of 40%? That's very out of line.

I hate it when they add gratuity. It makes me not want to tip.
I tip plenty generous, and when they add it, it's like an insult

You can thank the american public.


Serving industries are pretty much forced to auto-grat these days bc nobodies tips anymore.

Sucks, but they have learned from the clientele that it is the only way to make any money in the industry.

Bull shite. If you Auto-grat, it ceases to become a tip.

Stop coddling to people that don't tip. Make them unwelcome. Make them feel like shite.

Don't auto-grat. It pisses off the people that do tip

When we complained, the waitress disappeared with the original. Then when she came back with the new one after we talked with her manager she don't apologize. So can't provide pic. But I assure you it happened. This would be a really dumb made up story for the OT.

Absolutely agree, and I also disagree that the majority do not tip. MAtter of factly servers at a decent restaurant in any large city get overpaid. Worked at several restaurants cooking or dish bitch in high school. Make minimum wage an actually bust your ass.

Maybe she just wanted more Democrat free stuff. Are you a Libertarian or Republican? If so you should be ashamed you didn't give it to her. She just felt that she was entitled to your money.

Went to The Loft downtown with a buddy one night after Live After Five. We were dressed in jeans, polo/buttondown and LSU ball caps.
The girl at the door looked at us funny, kind of stammered something about a dress code and shuffled us off to a seat in the corner with Clayton, Mohammed, and Jugdish. Haven't been back since.

I have several server friends and they make more fricking money than I do at 32k/yr. People are still tipping.
And gratuity should NOT be 40% under any circumstance. The typical gratuity is 18%.

If they want to screw themselves out of a bigger tip that's up to them.

That'd be cool, but how do you know who these non-tipping people are beforehand?
