Well, they shouldn’t threaten you...but you should tip, especially in a bar. I wouldn’t go back, personally, because I think that having tips extorted (especially by the owner!) is totally wrong.
Write him a letter and tell him this.
However, as a former waitron, I can tell you that you’re not doing yourself or your group any favors. I never liked waiting on women, because they never tipped, regardless of how much you had done for them; there was another group that also never tipped, but I won’t go there...
Canadians aren't THAT 'thin-skinned' about their tipping habits... :-)
Yep...been there...done that.
The homeless, right?
Must be ministers, because you wouldn't bother making thast comment if it was teenagers.
I know some Black Servers who hate having their tables filled with that group that doesn’t tip.
Been some pretty good guesses by a few people, I guess Church groups.
Not to offend (I am Christian), but just that was what I have heard before.
Husband, kids and I went to the Texas Roadhouse the other night. Had a group of young “Amish” sitting right next to us. They left before us. When husband and kids were at the restroom, the waiter came up to me to let me know that we left more of a tip for our $30+ meal than that group did for their $100+ meal.
That would be black people
But they are not the only minority doesn’t tip well
They undertip when they do tip also. This is one reason I hate to go out to eat with women. You end up paying more to compensate for their cheapness, but then they say "Oh we have too much here" and start giving money back, dealing dollar bills around the table as if it were their money. I made them stop one time and now they ask for separate checks to avoid the problem--but waiters HATE that. What to do? It happened again the other day with a different group of women, when we had had absolutely perfect service. It's not an overgeneralization; it is really true.
