I am terribly behind on blogging and just about everything else in my life too. So forgive me. I'm still here just stalled. We spent a fun weekend in WI though so I'll be sharing stuff throughout the week. But first I went to lunch today to grab a sandwich and tried someplace new. This is what I saw on the bill. Is this new? (Being that it is a new place I also spent way more than I wanted on lunch...but alas I digress.)
Now I have never seen a "suggested gratuity amounts" on a bill before. I know on large parties they sometimes have an automatic addition for gratuity but this was just a helpful note on my bill. First of all, this isn't hard math people, nor does it have to be so specific. You want 15%? Move the decimal point one over...$15.00 becomes $1.50 for 10% and then add an additional half that (.75) for a total of $2.25. And if you can figure out 10%, 15% and 20% than it is easy to pick some number in between roughly where you want to tip.
But beyond that, shouldn't they start at 15% at least? I know that 18% is customary but what happens when you have bad service. And it isn't it a tad presumptuous to have the 25% on there? I mean, I think I can count on one hand the times I've tipped over say 20%. And believe me an overpriced sandwich and iced tea is not it.
Have you seen this? Am I the only one who is annoyed by it?
