Gratuity

Do card machines calculate tip on top of the total with tax? If so, that's kind of shady.

...someone in the restaurant industry attempts to rationalize it to shame people into tipping more

are busy down voting. The people that provide you with employment (the customer) are unhappy. Take note, your robotic replacements are only a few years away.

Ugh

Are you actually complaining about 15% of 5% of the cost of your meal?! You know it's super unsexy to be that cheap and skeevy, right?
Vancouver cheap-os are hilarious. $10 coffees, but god forbid they tip an extra dime.
And no, I'm a public servant, not in any relevant industry.

@ugh

Yeah, or they can stop dropping their pants getting only minimum wage with no benifits and relying on tips. They can up their game, work at a better bar or restaurant, or better yet get out of the industry all together. If there is nobody to work for shady employers, they are forced to raise wages and hence prices to reflect that.
