Automatic Gratuity

Keeping tips off the machines has better chance of it going to staff
instead of the Government.

Actually look at the bill, not just the total.

Proceed from there.

There is no way to hide it.....revcan will simply assess tax on what it "should be"......received or not and declared or not. They have done very comprehensive audits in the past of this industry and they have been exhaustive in their taxing of tips.

I think it only fair for tips to be split proportionately between servers, cooks, bartenders and wait staff etc., everybody contributed to the overall experience of the patrons, however, its the server that has the most influence in the experience being he/she is the "face" of it all and therefore should likely be entitled to a larger share.

I don't agree that the server has the most influence on the experience.
The primary reason you are there is for the food.
The chef, the assistant cooks, the kitchen help all play a part in the quality of the food.
The server plays a part in the guest feeling welcomed and catered to.
The server is certainly not more important than the others - in fact several restaurants have suffered or even failed when they lost their chef - though I never heard of one failing because they lost their server. Splitting tips equally is in my opinion the only fair and equitable way to go.

Critical kitchen staff, chef, sous chef etc, are generally paid more than servers. Most restaurants have the servers tip out a percentage of their cash out to the kitchen and the bartender.

I don't care how good the food is, if the server is unfriendly, rude, inattentive, breaks some etiquette rules etc., it negatively affects the overall experience and makes me leave less of or no tip at all, but that's just me.

My son is a Chef and try and get repeat business if you are serving crappy food and I don't care how good the server is.

I would bet that if the patrons could see what goes on in a kitchen they would either never return or give the staff bigger tips.
If I agreed with you then we would both be wrong!

That sound a little crazy to me.
Paying tax on something that may or may not have been recieved based on
the tally at the end of a bill.

Yup, sounds legit !

If I were to be taxed on income for income not recieved I would be switching
paths quicker than you could say, "cheque please."

Trump eats there and I would bet he doesn't tip either.

Maybe they could make him the mascot for Fatburger? :biggrin:

OOooppppsss....okay.

When I was in China and ate at the restaurants there, tipping was frowned upon.They say that tips, "Spoil the people". I have had more than one waitress chase me out of the restaurant with the change that I left on the table, clutched in both hands and tried to return it to me.
I have many stories about tipping in China. ........I wonder now if she turned the money over to the boss or shared it with the others. I am talking about maybe $1 CAN tip for a table of 4.
