    Applebee’s fires waitress who posted receipt from pastor complaining about auto-tip

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow...193820748.html

    Some time on Wednesday, Chelsea says the customer who had left the receipt contacted her Applebee’s location, demanding that everyone be fired, from the servers involved to the managers.

    What a douche.


    In my old job, I had people yell at me all the time to have co-workers fired. Most of the time, it was because the customer was a pompous douche (kind of like Father Douchebag was in his receipt message).

    What a joke, employees get absolutely no respect in a consumer driven society.

    What exactly gives her the right to automatically charge someone 18%?

    That's pretty standard store policy at many restaurants for groups of 6-8+

    Is Applebee's that fancy that they charge 8% more than the regular 10%?

    Regular 10%? Where the **** are you going and tipping that (not that I haven't tipped that or less)?

    Standard tips are 15-20% generally. For parties, they add 18% gratuity because it falls between 15 and 20% (it should be 17.5%, but it's beneficial to round up). And, it's convenient to have it figured into the check to 1. guarantee you get tipped and 2. make it easier for people to determine the appropriate tip.

    In Canada, most restaurants I've been to charge 10%. Some 15% but those were restaurants that were selling like $35-40 steaks.

    American restaurant tipping suggestions are between 15-20%.

    Well I live in Canada so the countries might have different regulations.

    Standard tips are 15-20% generally. For parties, they add 18% gratuity because it falls between 15 and 20% (it should be 17.5%, but it's beneficial to round up). And, it's convenient to have it figured into the check to 1. guarantee you get tipped and 2. make it easier for people to determine the appropriate tip.
    I've never had automatic gratuity over 15% (and I rarely get 15% automatic tip) so I suppose 18% seems like an outrageous number with for me and that's where my original post was based from.

    There has been a quite a few of these "posting receipts about tips online/getting fired" stories.

    Well we suggest 10-20% too. But I've rarely seen automatic gratuity over 15% on my bills, even to ones where I'm paying about $30 for myself. But maybe that's because our waiters get paid more?

    It's possible. It's not unheard of for a waitress to make as little as $4/hour (maybe less in some places).

    It's the restaurants policy. It will even say on the menus that parties 6 or more, or 8 or more, get 18% gratuity. It's not like he wouldn't have known about it ahead of time. The pastor was a dip ****.
