If the tip doesn't get to where you intended it to go, then I wouldn't tip. The owner is making his profit on the meal. It looks like the owner wants a bigger piece of the pie..................
Agree 100% with u, as well as BUDDY ROADHOUSE !
I was shocked when Gregg & I heard about this "owner keeping tips" practice yesterday. We were having lunch with the gal who wrote the review.
She said she was'nt gonna go back to that Indian place, anyway, cuz the portions were too small for the high prices. BUT, I suggested that she (or anyone else who goes in there) make a comment right in front of owner, & the waiter, that they will NOT be tipping, cuz the OWNER gets to keep the tips !! Instead, they would like to meet the waiter , across the street , when their shift is over, to give them what they deserve.
