So somewhere between 10-15% when you are being comped? You cheap fuck.

lol fuck you. they don't give a bill so I have no idea how much it is. I try not to go overboard when eating comp too (unless im being told to) so I just always throw a 100 down. I didn't want to say I put 100 because everyone got all butthurt last time I posted what I actualy tip so I went more conservative. why you such a miserable cunt?

How much would you tip if you thought the bill was $200-400, but not certain of the exact amount?

$80 to 100

While playing $10,000-a-hand blackjack, Tiger re-pocketed a $5 tip after realizing he tipped her early in the night.

He's well known for being a major league asshole for tipping.

One of his sluts said she was embarressed at a restaurant where he paid the bill and left no tip AT ALL.

Seems to believe being in his presence is enough.

I was just about to post that link. For some reason, I am not surprised at all that these particular people made the list.

I enjoy how you've gone from Mr generosity to a cheapskate in a single page. You sir, are a quality drinker of free wine.

I gave a rough estimate. Sorry chief I was not keeping track of the occasional free glass of wine...oh wait, that's you. laugh.gif

You ever think the way I asked the original question was setting you up? Seems to have worked...

So I was out on Tuesday and we were at a bar. Ended up having a $140 tab (may have been $120, can't remember). And I feel kinda like a douche for how I tipped. I was in shock when I got the bill, showed it to my friends, refused to let them pay (I was buying their drinks. It was so expensive because *I* wanted to keep drinking, they were just bystanders...). Anywho, friend throws two twentie$ on the bar.

I figure I will use that for the tip. I for whatever reason was afraid the cash would get lost in the bill holder thingamabob so I call the bartender over and personally hand it to him.

C'est la vie.

Also: Idnfl--you really don't want to try and correct Kwilkinson on, well, anything related to restaurants or wine. FYI.

I might have a hard time leaving any tip since the service charge is already included. I like how you were billed so that you're paying a service charge on tax, too. What is the fair tip on tax, btw?

You feel like a douche for handing it to him or you feel like a douche for it being $40? Neither of those are douchey.

it was a substantial tip and I feel like he may have thought I was trying to bring attention to it. Keep in mind, the cute waitress who was really incompetent also got tipped well by me. She also wanted to add me on FB so we could go to GSU football games and I only gave her my last name, and am still sans friend request. That was fun times.

This is such a bizzare thread. I've been wetting my bed lately because I forgot to reimburse a bartender that comped me $8 to buy a pack of smokes from the machine. I tipped him ok but was supposed to add the $8 on top of that but was too drunk to remember. Stopped by a few days later but he wasn't working until the following week. The bar is in my hood so I'll stop in sometime soon. No doubt it'll renew his faith in humanity that I still remembered after two weeks. biggrin.gif

An observation from last night. My wife is out of town, and I went to dinner with my mother. She insisted on paying, but had no glasses and it was dark, so I had to sign for her. I left what I would normally leave if I were paying, around 20%, a touch higher because the food was rather inexpensive and the service very good. I thought of this thread, though, and wondered how people tip if they are tipping with somebody else's money.

I tip 20% on other people's money. It's a good, but not ridiculous tip.

I agree that it's bad form to overtip. You may as well snap your fingers at the waiter and call them "garcon." 20% is my standard. 25% at places where I know the owners, we've been comped something, and/or my kids have been overly rambunctious,

I very often tip over 50% because I'm riding on the coattails of my wife when we dine and we usually receive a couple of comped drinks along with comped appetizers, so what I do is tip on what it would have been if all things were included in the bill. I think under those circumstances it's in bad form.
