The only time I ever stiffed a server's tip in my adult life was this time I waited 45 minutes for a refill on my coffee, and then saw my server on the other side of the restaurant, chilling in a booth, smoking a cigarette, and chatting on her phone. She was not on break (especially not for 45 minutes). She did not get a tip.

    I've gotten used to not tipping now, though, and it makes me really hate the US system. I hate in the US that, if I wanna go out to eat, I have to plan on not only buying my food, but paying an extra 15-20% on top of that. Pay servers decent wages so that tips are extra for exceptional service, like it is here. Jesus.
    Ah ah, I've read that it is one reason french tourists are not very much appreciated in London. We don't tip ! Because we actually don't know you have to tip 10% of the bill.

    Here it's like 50cts of euros for a drink and for an average restaurant, the tip isn't often more than 2 .

    It's not just French people... in the US, a server dreads having any European customers, haha. A lot of servers don't realize (or want to believe) that Europeans honestly don't know how tipping works. I felt that way when I was a server, but then I moved here and had plenty of people actually ask me about tipping in the US. I've had several people say they went to the US and had problems regarding tipping, asked me what the etiquette is. It's hard for servers to understand, but it's equally hard for the visitor to figure out the tipping situation.

    Aren't some restaurants in the US adding the tip to the check? I remember my uncle telling my dad that he didn't have to leave a tip at certain places and showing him the tip added at bottom.

    Gradituity(something like that on the spelling). Yes some places do that only like on big parties over a certain amount of people. Where I work the only time that I am allowed to do that is when we have our easter buffet.

    The bar I worked at added gratuity for parties over eight. They also finally started adding gratuity to crab leg night because on a $1,000 night of personal sales, even the best server would make less than fifty bucks. Not to mention that shit was all you can eat, so they would run you ragged for two hours and leave you three dollars. I would rather just earn a solid wage and have tips be a bonus if I was awesome (which I always am )

    Two dudes just sat down at 9:50. I hope they came in separate vehicles and on their way home they hit each other. No one is seriously injured, maybe a sprained wrist or a bruise and maybe a couple hundred dollars of damage to their cars.

    Oh sweet! Three more people at 9:53! I hope they all crash into each other and die.

    Omg that sucks. A few years ago I had a table of 20 come in 5 mins before we closed for breakfast. That was FUN.
