Quoting melindapple:" Have you seen the photo going around facebook about the "pastor" who opted out of an automatic gratuity ... [snip!] ... do so. Others say its crap and gratuity should be automatic because servers lose money due to improper tips. What do you think?"
I think that if some pastor really did that, he's a major douche.
I don't mind tipping because I feel like servers are more likely to do a good job if they think they're going to be rewarded (my husband disagrees and thinks they should be paid a flat rate just like most professions).
