Yeah ok lol! They may print it on the bill but they have no power to enforce it. Just like the preacher in the story you say no I am not paying for a tip and they must remove it from the bill. You are only required by law to pay for the food itself not the service. As far as eating out being a luxury I'm sorry you find yourself in such a financial situation. For me eating out is an everyday norm not a luxury, of course I didn't get rich giving my money away to uneducated servers. What college is that the servers you mention go to? Is it the same college all the strippers go to get their degrees lol? You know like servers they are working their way through college and many have degrees LOL! By the way just ate breakfast and left 0 tip just for you ;)
I really hope you get a great deal of enjoyment looking down your nose with contempt and ignorance at servers you deem to be "uneducated" because in all likelihood most of them have achieved a higher level of education than you have. You seem to have an awful lot of pent-up anger and resentment towards these young, good-looking, hardworking people in the hospitality industry.

Hmmm, I wonder why? Could it be that you are so riddled with your own insecurities that you think that by stiffing servers on an everyday basis somehow gives you a bit of a power-trip over them? It appears that you are overcompensating for something.

Do you have ANY idea what you are eating and drinking, lol?? When you frequent the same establishments repeatedly and gain a reputation as an arrogant, snooty, demeaning pig who refuses to tip, the food and drinks you are served always contains a few extra little treats.

You know that complimentary loaf of bread that comes with your meal or the bun with your sandwich? The server or busboy has wiped their ass with it. Mayonaisse on your sandwich or dressing on your salad? Think of a creamy colored bodily fluid and that's what's in it. Your drink? Yup, a "gray snail" or piss and if you are really an ass to the bartender, you get "bartender's friend". Everything else that you eat or drink you can figure has loogies in it or has been wiped on the floor. Eating mexican food?? God save your soul, LOL!!

So go ahead, get your jollies treating the staff like crap and laughing about it, feeling all superior to them and then coming here and bragging about it. It is US that are laughing at what a dumbass you are and knowing everything that you are ingesting, LMAO! I guess you sure showed THEM, didn't you??? Watching you eat and drink those special concoctions was worth WAAAAY more than ANY tip, Einstein!!

The bill-splitting detail was in a couple news stories (Gawker, I think) and also in the original reddit post. The more recent news stories seem to be leaving it out, and her party keeps getting smaller and smaller, it's weird.

I am a server and at our establishment there is an 18% gratuity for large partys, ive worked at two other restaurants that do the same. I cant believe this lady, go figure shes black im sure she b****** and complained the whole time anyway! For those of you saying serving isnt a real job I dare you to try to do what we do for one day, better yet 1 hour! I have a degree in business admin and id still rather wait tables anyday besides sitting on my ass behind a computer screen all day and make LESS than i do now. Serving is fun and exciting and seeing new faces everyday never gets old. We bust our asses to take care of you, so what if you have to wait a couple second for a refill we deserve a tip everytime people dont realize how many people we have to tip out too... hosts, bartenders, barbacks... bottom line if you cant afford to tip stay your hoosier a** home and remember KARMA is a b**ch! ;)

applebees you wont be getting my business, i like tgi fridays better anyway lmao

He'll no I don't tip the pizza guy and I don't pay the delivery fee they try to tack on either because like a tip you DO NOT have to pay it. Been down that road and won on many occasions. Bottom line is this story is indicative of server holy than thou attitude and the server got canned for it rightfully so.

Well said! I'm not a server but I am a decent tipper. I've heard other degreed servers say they make more money serving too. Good luck and may many tips come your way!

This article explains the piss poor example of a pastor DID have to pay the tip.
@ Old School---Don't go to a restaurant w/ a group. Most places will put the tip on the bill and legally you DO have to pay it. You do have an advantage though. In most other aspects--- you, as a customer, are always right even when you are wrong. I'll bet you utilize that advantage often based on your comments. Unless of course you are a troll which w/b a good thing compared to being an obnoxious hoosier.
you ae so wrong.

I do think you should tip. These people work very hard and deserve it. I always leave at least 10 to 15 percent. I do think that 18 percent is a little high though. I do think you should always tip. If I was the pastor I would had went ahead and paid it. I do not agree with her posting the bill on line because it could cause the pastor a great deal of trouble. All it did was make the pastor look bad and cost the server her job. A bad deal all the way around.

When I was in college I waited tables to pay for schooling. People used to do that instead of loans but thats a different topic. Anyway my co-servers and I would do our best not to wait on blacks. They were notoriously demanding and when it came to tips forget it. Maybe things have changed but that was my experience some years back
