Im calling bull shite on the 40%


Why is everyone calling bull shite on the number?

Our bill was $36, and the added gratuity that she charged our card for was $14 something. If you divide $14 something by 36, guess what you get.

I understand exactly what she did. She added a 20% tip for what the total would have been if the drinks were regular price, and she hoped we wouldn't notice that the tip was already added so that we would tip more. Unfortunately for her, we're not fricking idiots so we called her out on it. Why would I make this shite up?

don't know how much their sig drink costs, but lets just say they're $10...you get 2 rounds of 2 drinks totaling $20 for the 4 drinks.

i would probably tip her $5 on that...the waitress knows that, but is thinking that i'm getting $40 worth of drinks for $20 and wants her 20% tip for the cost of 4 drinks, not 20% for 2 drinks & 2 freebies...hence the 40%.



This.

Are you fricking kidding me? You don't see a problem with a waitress trying to take advantage of patrons by adding in a 40 fricking % tip, and then still wanted more tip? And then when we call her on this she doesn't even apologize.

I get the math, I'm not a retard. The problem is the waitress auto grat'ing herself 40% when we didn't have a large party or hassle her in anyway. She didn't even make the drinks. They have never done that before, and this bitch was trying to get 60% tip hoping we were too drunk to notice. I guarantee she did that to every person she served, hopefully the rest noticed.

You are supposed to tip on the full amount if you use a gift card or something like that. But if its two for one drinks I have never felt the need to pay for "both drinks."

I also agree if this were food it would be a different story. I only ever tip a dollar or two per drink but always tip at least 15-20% depending on service. Making a drink takes about 2 mins. Serving a table throughout the course of the meal takes much, much more.

To expect that much tip on a few drinks is some buuuuuullshit

Crooks, they are out their folks, and it's not new.

I had a friend that used to pump gas at the Airline Motors in LaPlace during the mid eighties. People would never check the amount he pumped, so he would just add a dollar to every fill up. "Yes maam, that will be 12 dollars" instead of the actual 11 dollars. It would add up during the day and that was big money back then.

He rarely got busted, and if he did, he just acted as if he made a mistake.

how much are the drinks?


$12

quote:

did the bill say "gratuity 40%" or was there just a total that was too high?


Just said gratuity $14.xx

quote:

could it be that she just didn't input the special, and you were just paying for 6 drinks versus 3?



Nope, special was rung up correctly. This bitch just tried to pull a fast one on us.

What you are basing this assumption on?

Don't tell me it's because of facial expressions because you asked to get the tip removed, i.e., you were going to pay less than the full price tip.

If you want to rag on them for auto gratuity on regular price drinks, go for it. No need to make shite up on top of it though.

40% is too high but, it was still a dick move for not tipping her correctly
disagree. she blew her chance at a tip when she tired to rip him off. she deserved zero tip for that move...

Ha! It's absurd to auto tip on the full price of a special - especially a drink special.

If I'm a manager I'd be giving her a pretty stern warning on that one.

Why else would she do it then scowl at us when we called her out?

Don't be stupid.

I think the waitress should take into her consideration that he employer will offer 50% goods that will affect her income. She should understand this, not pass it off to her customers.

OP - How did ya'll act as customers? I'm guessing with your finacee' & dad there was little to no rowdiness involved?

but that special probably brings in more people, more tables, more tips. tough shite for the waitress. if her job is too tough, she should find another one.

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


Unfortunately the people who make 2.13/hr are not psychic and can tell that you are a generous tipper.

quote:

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.


Our policy at the restaurant I manage is 18% on parties of 6 or more. When you make 2.13/hr you have to protect yourself especially with a party that is taking up all of your tables for an extended period of time. I really don't have a problem in Houma but in S'Port I used to get "I'm a good tipper and would have tipped more". I always say if that is so then put the extra that you would have tipped on top of the grat. They never do. All that person did was reinforce the idea that gratuity needs to be added.

Are you disagreeing with me? It seems like we are on the same side of the argument.

That's dumb on her part. She should be happy she gets 20% and not just $1 a drink like I would at a usual bar

We were great until she pulled that on us.
