The last time I ate out, I was with my boyfriend at ihop. The waitress was just terrible. She gave us a dirty look coming up to us (I'm black and he's white) I knew it wasn't going to go well. He has his quirks, and one of them was the issue that day. We ordered a single serving of pancakes (we weigh under 260 combined) and he requested a 'bowl' of butter and an ash tray. (he was a heavy smoker) She got us our food and we never saw her again. We had another waitress give us an ashtray and heaping bowl of butter. we left our waitress a one penny tip. I insisted we leave that so that she knew that we tip according to service rather than not at all.

I always tip the waiter too, but I never go by the 15% rule. I tip based on how good their service was, so it could be more or less than 15%.

oh 15% is very high for a waiter, i think so, i will give only the balances to the waiter.
