I effing hate restaurants that automatically add tips to your bill.
It really fucking annoys me. Especially when the service isn’t up to much.
Tips should not be a right, they should be bloody well earned. If you spend $120 on a meal for two, and not only was the meal only so-so, but the service wasn’t even outstanding, then I think it’s a damned cheek to add the 18% gratuity charge.
Of course we could have refused to pay it, but who wants to cause a scene?
Bah pissing humbug.
