Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Family says restaurant locked them inside over tip refusal

I'm in a group that does a monthly "Mom's Night Out" and most restaurants tell us in advance that a tip is automatically added to the bill for parties of six or more.

See in my opinion that's a big problem. There is no incentive to provide good service if the gratuity is automatic. In this particular case the service was terrible so why should anyone have to pay 17% extra for bad service and not have any recourse. Treat me well and you get a good tip. Treat me badly and you might get a penny. A Canadian penny.

(Disclaimer: I'm Canadian. There used to be a saying: "What's the difference between a Canoe and a Canadian? Canoes tip.")
