But if I'm drinking at a bar, I tip more since that's all the bartender is serving me.
Not sure what the laws are like where you live, but where I live you can bring your own bottle of wine into some restaurants, you just have to pay an uncorking fee which usually runs $15-$20. For a cheap bottle of wine that wouldn't help but if you bring a bottle that's $35 retail and they're selling it for $65 at the restaurant, you just saved yourself $10+.

That is actually pretty common

But the corking fee still goes down in the server's sales for the shift.

I always tipped my bartenders good. But I use to hate going to bars where all the bartenders friends hung out while he/she was working. Most of the time in that situation, you get poor service no matter the tip. That makes them a poor bartender IMO.

By the way, that was a very rare occasion in the Vista but when I was in school it was pretty common in 5 points.

Nothing wrong with the bartender being friends with the people or even serving his friends, but they have to realize that they have a job to do. I think bartenders learn this over time.

That's what I mean when I say your logic is circular.

You claim you dont tip well when you see "that attitude."
Problem is- "that attitude" is only displayed when you tip poorly.

See? Circular logic.
See this is what you don't get. Try to understand that first and then come back and talk to me.

I think someone just has a hard time getting drinks at a crowded bar.

I tip very well when I stumble in the next morning to close out my tab and get my card back.

Its quite obvious that I just took your direct words and applied them to the post you responded to.

If my interpretation of your post is incorrect- then tell me how it is incorrect.

I heard the pastor on the radio this morning talking about the issue. She sounded like a non-educated fraud. It was terrible trying to decipher what she was trying to say.

I don't remember any specific statement off the top of my head, but it was very ghetto sounding and very dumbed down. I will look on YouTube and see if I can find it again.

Two days ago, I spoke to a lawyer concerning this topic. She was familiar with the article. Her professional opinion on whether tipping is a legal issue or not: she actually stated that she could argue both sides of the issue without a problem and said that she believed that cops would probably not arrest someone for skipping out on a gratuity.

If it is called a gratuity on the menu even if it says mandatory i could see arguing against it because the definition of gratuity is something given that is not obligated. If the menu were to say service charge for parties of 8 or more i would see it being mandatory
