One of my pet peeves. Automatic gratuity.
a.k.a. Here’s hoping you’re not paying that much attention.
Bad enough that they’ve decided we even want to tip 20% for bad service (20 minutes to get a drink; 30 for a glass of water) and mediocre food. I wonder who gets the “extra” if we don’t notice and tip twice. I doubt it’s the waitstaff.
Anyway. . .
