In case you weren't aware, there is now a Religion Forum here. All high-quality discussion welcome!
I use 15% as a base. Then add or subtract depending on service. 95% of the time I give at least 15%. Most of the time more. At waffle house today I gave 7 on a $29 bill. If I use my debit card, I usually just tip to make my bill even for easier balancing. So if my bill is say, $16.23, ill leave a $3.77 tip if they were good.
I hate when places add the tip on. it basically means that the waiter or waitress can do a bad job, and they'll still get a good tip. last time I went to Dave and Busters, I had terrible service, I had to wait almost an hour just to get my food ordered and it wasn't busy at all, but since we had a lot of people, I still had to leave her a tip. one of my friends told me later than if you ask a manager to take it off, they will. I didn't know that at the time, otherwise I would have done that.
Just one more reason not to go to Aplebees
Serving 20 people is not an easy task for a waiter or waitress. Especially with as little as they make. Its embarrassing that a "pastor" would be so classless.
If she were the least bit intelligent she'd go and get that employee's job back.

As someone who works in this industry and who relies on tips, it's disgusting how some people tip. On a daily basis, once or twice a shift, someone's total will be say, $49.25. They'll hand me $50 and say "keep the change". They genuinely believe, and you can tell by the expression on their face, that they gave you something you should be grateful for. They're waiting for a thank you. I'm not kidding.
