Now that's funny. At least you didn't get a "carrying charge" for the help out the door...

Everything posted in this thread so far (servers and customers) is exactly the reason why I don't enjoy going there anymore.

Damn...I sould like an old man now....
Ditto.......and I'm only 25. I've got a girl/fiance, so the main objective just isn't there for me anymore . We like to drink out at restaurants, but if I got the time - I'm going to the lake and partying with neighbors and making my own drinks just how I like them. I always give the bartender the standard $1 tip for a beer, but not because I want too or because I think he deserves it..........I just do it in case I want another drink and I don't want him blowing me off on the next round.

Usually tip a dollar a beaer if they get it in a timely matter. Noy hitting on the girl after they take my order. Usually try for the female bartenders as well, for they dont want to chit chat and get the men out of the line quick. If they were good at the end of the night I will go back and poney up a little bit more and thank them for the service, if they suck they get the what the **** when I hand the good ones a bonus at the end. Granted they probably split it from there but it is satisfaction to see the face when you hand it in person to them instead of the jar and say thanks.

Some of yall are missing the point,

Yes, Tipping is required for good service and expected.

Yes, Great tipping along with courtesy will get you Great Service!

Yes, There are, on occasion, some Dumbphuckers behind the bar that don't deserve any tip. BAD SERVICE regardless of the tip amount or courtesy.
REPLACE DUMBPHUCKS
THIS IS AMERICA!
GET a New Bartender or Waitress and give them a 20 dollar tip before ordering.

TIPS .....To insure prompt service....... Tip FIRST!
Eliminates the wondering of, if, you are a bad tipper to your server.

Bad service find another Bar.

Rude Bad tippers shut up and take your hot beer in a dirty spit filled mug when they get ready to mess with you.
