This guy didn't like the 18% auto gratuity on his bill...

It says... "I give god 10%, why do you get 18%?"

In the comments on the post, the person who submitted the image explains that this was just a portion of the total bill for a table of 20, which means the 18% tip is automatically put on the bill.

“Parties up to eight at my work may tip whatever they’d like,” explains the server, “but larger parties receive an automatic gratuity. It’s in the computer, it’s not something I do.” The auto-gratuity policy is apparently also listed on the menu.

In total, the group ran up more than $200 worth of food before tax and tip, says the server. As for whether or not the zero-dollar tip reflect the quality of service, the waiter writes, “They had no problem with my service, and told me I was great. They just didn’t want to pay when the time came.”

I don't like auto-tipping policies.

It's very rare that I tip only 18% on my own, so when it's automatically added like that, it's my form of protest to never tip any more than the minimum.

I don't mind auto tipping, but the server better be worth it or complaints will be made to the acting manager.

A lot of layers to laugh at on this one..

But as a pastor way to go on giving your deity the bare minimum. Wonder how soon he asks the congergation to reach down and " give a bit more this week".

Automatic tips are done because you've made yourself one of the few tables if not the only table that waiter can attend to during the time that you're there. You've monopolized their time.

If requested, they will take the 18% off. You just can't be all passive aggressive about your complaints and/or sneakily cheap.

I hope that pastor realizes nowhere in the New Testament is 10% required. So he could be giving God more. Doh

We give Zod 10% of our time with posts. Where is my free new york strip??

And I'm sure any waiter would probably be fine with 10% of his earnings for that day.
