[h2]Restaurant Bans Customer For Not Tipping Enough[/h2]
By Chris Walters on February 26, 2010 1:26 PM 0 views



Themenu of a restaurant in Winston-Salem, NC, says a gratuity of 15% willbe added to parties of six or more. A former customer says she was in aparty of three and saw that an 18% gratuity had been added, which shecomplained about but paid. She said the next time she showed up, she was met at the door by staff and told that she had to agree up front to pay 18% or she couldn't eat there.

That sounds pretty outrageous, but the restaurant's manager toldlocal news station WXII that she's a repeat offender when it comes toundertipping, and that nobody in the kitchen or on the floor wants toserve her anymore.

Anyone who's worked in a restaurant probably knows someone whoalways undertips, but what's the best way to deal with it? Assuming themanager's allegations are true, it's not like the customer was breakingthe law--after all, an undertipper is playing by the rules if the rulesstate that tipping is optional.

In this case, the woman says she never tipped inappropriately and that she's considering suing for slander:"I have always left a good tip at Kanpai Restaurant , even when I wasgiven poor and less than honorable service," she told WXII.

the worst are verbal tips

i dont understand why you gotta tip servers when they're just doin their job?
i don't see customers tipping retail workers, construction workers, or other workers who have harder jobs than servers..
at the end of the day, i still tip tho but til this day i dont understand why

Becuase they're paid under the minimum wage because of the fact they receive tips.

Waiters don't get minimum wage.So they rely on tips.

being a former waiter myself (applebee's), I'm very particular when it comes to service. If you do me right (NH), i'll hook you up with a fat tip. If you're sh*tty, then i'll leave the tip accordingly... to me, it's all about service and not the $$$

My best guest would be the ones who don't have it,
the majority of the minority.

In this case though, no matter what she thinks of
the charge of gratuity and how ridiculous it may be,
she knew of this before she returned and ate.
