Dude, if its that big of a deal you don't need to be going out to eat.
Your reading comprehension is horrid.
1. Not a big deal. I tipped and didn't complain and will not complain as I know what its like to be a server.
2. I had horrible service
3. I was forced to tip a higher than 15% amount.
I usually tip 20% as its an easy figure and a reward for good service. Heck I tip even more when I am wowed by service.
Prior to AppleBees I had a Dinner Friday that cost me $85 in which I left a $20 tip. And a Lunch that costs $145 that I left a $30 tip for. I was given the choice to tip. Even though one of those services was not outstanding. My way of Stiffing is 15%.
I don't stiff.
I go out to eat more than average and tip well.
MY POINT IS I SHOULD NEVER BE FORCED TO TIP EVER!!! UNLESS I HAVE A LARGE PARTY!!
Service was poor, and she knew it. So she grated me.
