Just remember to tip your waiter/waitress on your way out.

Customer: "Waiter, why is your thumb on my steak?"

Waiter: "Because I don't want to drop it again."

Do what they do in Europe and pay the waitstaff a fair wage then tipping wouldn't be a problem. Of course everyone's going to have to pay more for increased prices to cover that.

Semi off-topic, but used to travel a lot on business so ordered a lot of room service meals.

 

Not only was there a room-service charge, they automatically added in a 15-18% tip. Then most places had the nerve to include a blank spot labeled "gratuity" on the receipt. Trying to get me to feel guilty if I didn't tip the delivery person, although the tip was already in the bill. Caught onto that real fast, no double tipping from me, even if my employers would have paid it.

 

Read your bills very carefully.

Probably.  The bump was deleted tho, Kevin and Stan are replying to a post that no longer exists which contained Spam.

I hear of people in Jersey who tip the attendeant for pumping your gas but they have to pump your gas so they arent providing 

anything they are just doing what they have to do and get paid a regular wage.

 

also anyone see the recent ep of Kitchen Nightmares?

 

The owner was caught not giving the waitresses their tips among other things.

Not sure prices would increase that much. In California waitstaff is paid at least minimum wage, unlike many states that allow you to pay waitstaff some like $2.16 an hour. I have traveled all over the country and prices at the type of places most people go, chain restaurants, are not any different.
