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.

    • lol so they made Jinder the universal champion? big deal, the b show champion has never been even as prestigious as the intercontinental championship was in the early 90s. the real world champion is being held by a part timer, just like it kind of was in the early 90s whenever hogan was carrying it.
    • What are you waiting for? The final.solution?
    • This reminded me of his speech in Charleston (Boeing?). He talked of punishments for companies that tried to move jobs to other countries. Why hamstring countries so that they can't operate with efficiency and effectiveness. Seems awfully collectivist and anti-capitalist for someone who is touted as a pro-business capitalist. So here, with Carrier, he was applauded for some sort of effort to keep some amount of jobs in America. Yay. Oh wait, that wasn't actually sustainable? Federal Gov't meddling into corporate staffing decisions didn't work out as planned? Color me shocked. I don't think this guy has a clue what he is doing. He has no real ideology and doesn't understand , or care,  how things work or what the consequences to any action or comment will be.  I guess he is just throwing poo against the wall to see what sticks and what will appease his mouth-breathing, isolationist, supporters.
