WHY DO WE HAVE TO INCLUDE THE TAXES WHEN WE TIP OUR WAITER / WAITRESSES?
I think it was way off the line of New Orleans decor. It was nice. Food was not up to the OLD Pearls Oyster Bar and Fine Cajun Food and Fun, that I have always know and loved.
Why does life have to change?
Then the check came. At the bottom was for my convenience a gratuity calculation.
- 15% is $11.27
- 18% is $13.53
- 20% is $15.03
- on a $75.14 check.
- WHY DO I HAVE TO TIP ON THE TAXES
Now I don't mind tipping the waitress, especially if they have done a good job. That's not what this is about.
- 15% is $9.82
- 18% is $11.79
- 20% is $13.10
- on the $65.47
- food that I ate and had the waiter/waitress server me
When your check is small the amounts are not that different, but when you restaurant check gets up to $75 and over $100, it makes alot of difference.
So let's all think about this and not pay more than we have to.
Our waiter must have been new. He just kind of forgot us after we were served the food. We had to ask a manager for the check, then our waiter picked it up and the manager brought us our change. As we were leaving the parking area, the manager came out with $10 that he had short changed us. I guess that was a good thing. I know that karma was good for Pearl's, because I might go back, not soon, but I might.
