yeah.. as a general rule you tip on the "pre" sale, sales.. at least that's how I do it. The added gratuity was for 20%, just because it was 40% of your actual bill is unimportant.


Again, as you quoted, I understand the math. My problem is that at a bar, for a drink special, with a small party, she added auto grat without mentioning it. This is also not standard operating procedure for this establishment, so I know it's not their policy.

When I receive buy one get one for food, I tip for what the total would have been, because food is a lot more involved, and more people receive a piece of that tip. But I'll be damned if I'm tipping an extra 20% of $12 PER DRINK just because she made one extra trip to our table. And I'll be double damned if this little bitch thinks she's going to auto grat me and not give me the choice.

You are never supposed to tip on tax, and the management should make sure the servers know this.

While in college, I managed a restaurant /lounge that hosted many corporate banquets and had many sales people with unlimited expense accounts and corporate employees as our "regulars".Gratuity was automatically added to each ticket. Since all tickets came through me to be rung up and cashed out, I was instructed to watch for any tips that included tax in the calculation, and report the server who totaled the bill to the owner. When it was determined that the server had not made an honest mistake, and had broken this rule purposefully, he was written up the first time and fired the second.

has pretty much come in here and acted like a bonafide a-hole with every single one of his statements, I'm inclined to think he is the same way when he goes out to eat. When I waited tables it was a known rule, if I wanted to kill you by the time I was done waiting your table, because you were a straight up dick, you aren't a good tipper anyways. I never added gratuity to anything, good Lord I wish I could go back and change that sometimes.

Ok, seriously? 1st off, she didn't add the grat. to your ticket, no way in hell the manager would allow that. 2nd MOST of that 40% tip was going to the bartender that made you those damn drinks, which again.. goes back, to the fact that she didn't add it, the MANAGER did.


Good job reading frick stick. I've been there enough for the Friday special to know that the manager doesn't do that, and it's never happened with any other waitress. And I tip very well, you wouldn't spot me a mile away. Typical entitled response from a server though.

So you personally spend your time around the registers where they ring you up to know for SURE that it was definitely the waitress ringing you up, and not a manager having to come over and add it? You sure you don't work this business, cause somehow you have inside information here.

He sounds angry in his posts because it is infuriating that she or her manager tried to charge us the 40%. That decision should have been ours to make. You sound like a waiter that doesn't do his job and still expects a 25% tip if you want to play it that way.

Too bad I am nothing like that. And so now calling out one of you SIN people means I'm an a-hole? That's fricking rich.

JUST an ETA his Dad still tipped her 20%..


I'm a waiter that averaged 28% during my college years, I was also lucky to completely stay away from people that didn't tip, and I'm a marketer by profession, and knew how to "invoke" happy responses out of people during my college years as well.. but polishing a terd, and acting like he's a pearl, when he's still a terd, is retarded.

I'm also not completely against everything said in this thread either, I almost always pay 30% on my bill, if someone adds auto-grat. on my ticket, I only tip what is put on there, still doesn't change the fact that I'm not a complete a-hole and don't pay it. I have NEVER sent a ticket back, and if it was "40%" (which is wasn't.. it was still 20%) I would have still seen it as 20% and paid, because I'm not a cheapass.

Strange that the manager said it was a computer error then huh? I've addressed all this in the threw already, you just choose to ignore it to act like the stereotypical entitled server that thinks there is just no way the server just fricked up.

And Roger, I guess I should just give all my money away to servers. I'm sure you've never done something out of principle.

Proof that the manager had to ok it.. in the food service industry, everything is always someone elses fault, in this case, it's the machine, that way he doesn't get in trouble.

I understand that, and I'm saying that whether gratuity is automatically added or not, it should never be calculated with tax included.

On occasion, we had certain events that gratuity was not added automatically. For this, we had tickets that had the pre-tax total with a note to the side telling the customer that gratuity was appreciated, but should be calculated on that total, tax not included.

The wait staff and myself were instructed to check each ticket to make sure the tip was based on pre-tax total.
