I got into a 'debate' with my DC last night about restaurants that add the gratuity to the check. I explained that it is standard operating procedure for tip to be added to parties of 6 or more (I waitressed during my college/grad school years, which weren't that long ago) and that I was shocked this was 'news' to her. Our whole crew (12 total) agreed with me, but she was adamant that this was not the case. I found this to be rather funny and wondered what others thought of this auto-tipping practice for large(r) groups?
