Eating Downtown at some restaurants now, automatically tack on a 20% tip! even if you are eating by yourself, the tip is automatically added to your bill. In the past, restaurants will tack on 18% tip if you have a group of 8 persons or more.
I don't agree with this as:
A. The service is not 20% better
B. I should be able to tip whatever i want (based on service, waitress cuteness, etc.)
c. its just another cash grab to get us prepared for the HST.
I'm all for the working waiter/waitress but i think this situation is being taken advantage of. thus, i'm boycotting downtown eateries. (for now).
