probably for all the other times that she stiffed them on the tips.

I don't think that you should be able to ban a bad tipper. If you get bad service you cannot do anything about it but tip bad. I could just see this causing way too much tension.

Tips are just that, tips. They should never be considered an obligation.

If a business has a practice that someone finds objectionable the solution is simple - don't spend your money there.

I like rewarding good service with a nice tip. But I would never go somewhere that a tip was manditory. You have to earn your tip.

standard practice for restaurants to add tip for parties of 6 or more.

If we did like other foreign countries and just included tips in the prices of items, then no one would have to even think about it.

TIPS
To Insure Good Service

I am a huge believer in tipping, or not tipping, based on service.
Yes there is the "jerk factor" but that makes up a small percentage of patrons. No one ever complains about the folks who over tip.
You take the good with the bad in any service related industry.
I sell cars... some people pay cash, don't buy warranties, and I make zero extra money. Others pay full pop for warranties, finance, and I make a bunch of extra money... you have to take the good with the bad.

and it would bring down the bar for service, rather than raise it.

stupid....maybe restaurants shouldn't be so cheap and rely on tips but instead pay their employees a decent wage. Granted I believe that the whole "tip" idea improves service but at the same time I'm not going to leave a good tip for shitty service.

If restuarants are really concerned about recieving tips.. then it should be automatically billed into their charges (like how its automatically billed for parties over 6 at most restuarants). If their food & service is admirable then noone will complain because you would have tipped anyways.. but if the F & S isnt up to snuff.. then watch your business slowly die.
