Rib Country lost my business. They refuse to give out separate bills when you go in a group, the waitress always says they will figure it out at the register. Just this practice pisses me off but the real reason is they tack on the gratuity with groups and not couples. I stopped the practice with me, by not returning.

all i know about this is mandatory gratuity is an oxymoron. a gratuity is a gift or favor given in return for service. makes no sense.

I would never eat at a restaurant that required mandatory tipping .... there are many good restaurants (not fast food joints) that don't require tipping ... the only reason for tipping is to let the server know he/she did a good job, otherwise, it should be against the law.

Speaking of tipping ... I never understood why some people tip their hairdressers ... heck, some of those people make more money than I ever made and their services are not cheap.

Bottom line - if you don't like a "mandatory" tip for service that includes busboys, etc., stay out of those places that require it.

I've never understood the unreasonable customer at a restaurant that makes wait staff life miserable.
If the restaurant fails to meet your expectations, lesson learned. Don't go back. In the end, the restaurant will be the loser, instead of YOU. For every miserable person who finds fault with a restaurant, there are several to take your place who like it.

Stop bitchin' and take control of your life.

OMG, I always tip well, because I get appointments when she is "booked," samples of goodies and lots of freebies, and we are friends. She takes great care of my hair, always has time for me, and I can't think of anyone else I would rather tip - except for the gal who does my manicures and pedicures - same story. They treat me well, because I tip well. Easy to figure out. Same in my business, if I'm tipped by customers for my service, I find time for them even when I don't have time!

This is an example of an idiot. Rib Country is packed, I don't think they have missed you. If you are too ignorant to figure out how much you owe then I feel sorry for you.

What is your business anyway Peach? I mean you don't have to be specific if you don't want to, but generally speaking.

Only YOU would think "tipping" should be against the law. You probably go get your hair done or go eat in a restaurant, then fire 2 warning shots at them if they look like they expect a tip from you.

Well, I commend you, but I don't have a hairdresser (I cut my own hair and do my own coloring) and I can't afford pedicures and manicures, however I have nothing against people that can afford those luxuries.

Gentlemen, when you read the menu and it states such things, then you order from said menu, you are agreeing to the terms of the menu, it is an implied contract of sorts. If you don't like it you have the option to leave and get your meal somewhere else. What's so complicated? Guess fast food will be all that will accomodate your groups.
If you have a problem with service, the time to make a statement is during service, ask to speak with the manager, take care of the problem, don't be such whiney wimps and chump some one without giving them the chance to redeem themselves.
Ever think they are reacting to YOUR behavior? Might what to give that some thought...

challenger99, so if they do separate bills, you can basically tell them to forget the 18%? and of course, deal with the consequences..
Personally, for good service I tip at least 20%, so they do themselves a disservice, if they're good of course.
Do you know how the practice came about of tipping off the total amount of the bill?
I do know that TIPS = To Insure Prompt Service
I believe most people leave 20%, the point here is the legality of "mandatory gratuity". I'm not a mind reader but I think if the 18% had not been added to the bill they probably would have left maybe a ten dollar tip.
After reading the Bethlehem Thread, i just thought it would be a good Subject to comment on, especially since there had been a Thread on Tips on this Forum several weeks ago.
There have been good Posts so far. I want to thank all those who have Posted.

My neighborhood gets together once a month and goes out to dinner or has a picnic, tonight we went to Chevelles in Murphy. Large group, great wait staff, assumed we wanted separate checks and no auto tip. The food was pretty good as well.

A great time was had by all!! The right attitude sure helps for a smooth evening.
