This was left on the table instead of a tip

How would you feel about this?  

I honestly find it hypocritical...so you have enough money to go out and have dinner and drinks but you can't tip your waitress.  I am broke right now but even when DH and I went out for coffee we tipped our waitstaff.

I find it disingenuous.  If you can't afford to tip your server then you shouldn't go out to eat.

Agreed.

I find that it does two things, one it shows the patrons were asses, and two, it's going to drive more people, who already don't get paid enough, on welfare. 

So well done asshole.

Stupid bitch ass thing to do. Way to use Obama as a scapegoat for your own selfish greed.

If they are cutting back on discretionary spending, they don't need to be eating out at places where servers depend on tips...I'm sure McDonald's would have gladly accepted their money...


Honestly, I find that extremely rude and insulting...

I just want to know what the point of all this was.  I mean really...waitstaff depend on tips and in some places get paid lower wages because the employer knows they will be tipped.  So stupid!

I don't like it, either.  When I found out that waitresses actually get paid very little (sometimes not even minimum wage, because of tips) I became an advocate for them receiving tips.

And I will say that I'm embarrassed that some Christians who go out to eat after church on Sundays, and have tables full of family and friends, and the waitress busts her butt to help them, serve them, and look over them, then when they leave, there are few who leave a tip, or if any do, maybe one will leave a small amount.  After all of the waitresse's hard work.

They rely more on those tips to live by than their paid salary.
