    I would not patronize any establishment that treats me poorly.

    Also, the meaning of Tip has been lost.

      If someone hit me with an 18% gratuity without asking, AND not having it documented on the menu – I wouldn’t tip them at all. It constitutes fraud. Unless it is posted on the menu as a standard service charge, then it is misrepresenting the cost of the dinner. You are only obligated to pay what is printed on the menu before you. 18% is also constitutes, in my book – a tip for excellent service, if not for above

      Quality service deserves a reward. However, some establishments are using this as a methodology to pay their service people pennies, forcing the employee into virtual slave labor.

      One of the best weapons a consumer has is the number of reviews done by Zagat, Consumer Checkbook, and other online ratings services which use customer reviews. If the service or food is lousy, or the bill comes back with unfair or unexpected charges – that’s a good way to warn other consumers.

    These rating services do not include small, community eateries like the Jamaican, Soul Food or urban Sports Bars & Grills that are found in our community. At the end of it all its up to one’s personal judgement after experiencing the service and the food.

      A dude with a pushcart on the side of the street, selling hotdogs and chicken wings, with a transistor radio hanging from the awning playing the latest Atlanta Braves Game…

      Is hardly a “Sports Bar”, Porch.

      Maybe you need to upgrade your culinary experience a bit from “Jerk in the Box”.

    So……knowing this AND since you agreed to participate in the conspiracy by eathing in the place – YOU ARE even more obligated to give DIRECT CASH PAYMENTS to the service staff.

    I have told you several times that the primary means of confounding the oppression from McDonald’s franchees is to choose to PAY MORE to the cashier and tell her to keep the change and split it with her fellow employees.

      McDonald’s employees, at least up here where we don’t have red-zone virtual slavery, make $8 – $9 an hour to start. The major sit down chains pay $6.00 (or less)…

      Like most everything, Porch – you are too ignorant to understand the problem.

        I do understand that far too many of the school systems that a good portion of these McDonald’s staff members attended were housed within an ECO-SYSTEM that did not produce a mindset where they matriculate a large number of rocket scientists or physicians.

        You remain proud of these areas, however, because despite their misalignment where important – they are ALIGNED behind the political forces that you favor.

        As you have quite aptly demonstrated, the black conservative “Eco-System” which produced yourself didn’t produce any rocket scientists or physicians, either.
